7 nights
The sun-soaked hill towns of central Italy offer what many consider to be the quintessential Italian experience. Slow down and enjoy the tranquil pace of the countryside, savouring all of the many delights that this region has to offer. Take the time to experience the life in typical, local towns, while sipping on a great glass of wine in the main square. You will have the unique opportunity to learn more about truffles, a local, delicious delicacy. This adventure will take you up to a beautiful medieval hamlet set in a lush green forest. Our expert hunter and his trained dog will take you along as they search out this precious treasure and then unearth it from below the ground! An exquisite 4-course meal will be served, with tasty, traditional truffle-based dishes and fantastic wine, all prepared by the farmhouse owner. Your home away from home will be a wonderful villa, nestled into the hills surrounding the town of Cortona, in Tuscany. This will set the stage for an unforgettable week where you will be immersed in nature and can spend time relaxing in the garden or by the pool, as well as visit nearby hill towns, enjoy wine tastings and sample the local gastronomy.
