We are  excited to announce that the July “The two festivals tour” is fully booked and that we are now  taking  bookings for 2013. What an experience this tour will be!!  We are so excited about the  many surprises we have in store to share with our guests ..just be prepared to have fun and to be spoilt. Also bring a few cocktail dresses and your dancing shoes!!

The August -September tour “La mia Umbria con Antonella” still has some places left so don’t let it slip by. This tour is a culinary journey of Umbria. You will  indulge in all the produce this region has to offer in the  heavenly surroundings of  this  “magical” and “spiritual” land.  We will be tasting, eating and preparing Umbrian dishes with the  locals. This  is a focal point as well as discovering the art of cheese, prosciutto and bread making  with the local small producer who still follows the family tradition and recipe of making it as they did generations before. Picture yourself immersed in the green woods of this land totally in touch with nature. Witness the truffle  dogs  unearth these “golden nugggets called TARTUFO” .  We wil do this in Norcia beacuse Norcia   has the most prised tartufo nero of Italy . The smell of the tartufo is very intense but the  taste is so refined. When we return from the truffle hunt  we go to the  kitchen of  the Casa Bianconi and with the guidance of top chef Flavio we will  learn how to best combine this delicate produce as well as  make  tasty and unique dishes we then enjoy under the stars.   The tour is a pure indulgence of food , wine, great company and of  exclusive accommodation. We  will stay at one of Italy’s top RELAIS & CHATEAUX  right in Umbria….Ah what luxury …..don’t let it slip by, treat yoursef.. We want to restrict the number of participants  to only 8 so don’t miss out.
Let us assure you that it will be an  unforgettable holiday …so let your affair begin, andiamo. A presto, Antonella

PS. My beautiful village was covered with snow…just as it was in the winters I spent there as a child. Che bello!!
