We will be staying in an elegant 18th century country residence surrounded by gracefully rolling hills of vineyards, olive groves and woods. The landscape is a harmonious mixture of natural growth and manmade agricultural land of inspiring beauty. The recently restored interiors still have the atmosphere of old world charm. You will awaken to an enticing aroma of cappuccino and freshly baked pastry and bread. Lunches and candlelight dinners can be served either inside or in the villa’s terrace overlooking the magnificent valley. Patrizia and Alberto are the charming owners of the villa. They are the perfect hosts and will preparing your food and drinks using mostly fresh ingredients bought in the local market. The courtyards, garden and fields are all ideal en-plein air possibilities and there is also a studio right next to the main villa that we are welcome to use. It is a beautiful room transformed from it’s original use as a wine cellar into a large and furnished area for any kind of artistic work. You can stroll through courtyards and gardens, or if you prefer, you can take a more strenuous hike through the fields. They have also planned some great outings: Painting in Certaldo alto – this traffic free town atop a hill still retains its authenticity as a true medieval settlement and offers beautiful vistas. Cafes for cappuccinos, a wine shop, artisans and the museum of Giovanni Boccaccio will give us a great day out.

Another day will be a trip to Siena with a guided tour and museum visit. Siena’s medieval centre bristles with majestic buildings and a profusion of churches and is a wonderful place to simply wander about the historic centre and bustling lanes.

Another day trip that sounds terrific will be to S. Gimignano, an essential feature of any visit to central Tuscany. It has remarkable towers and fabulous frescoes and a lively street market.

I hope you can join us! For more information or to register:
