Custom Itineries


Looking ahead!  What we’re doing in 2019 and 2020!

Come spring or fall, it all started in TUSCANY
Find us in “discovery mode” all year, foraging and bird-dogging wonderment. Something exciting is waiting for you in Tuscany with wine tasting, cooking, educating, and road- tripping.

Classic Tuscany Dates:

2019- October 22nd -29th  Space Available!

2020- October 13th-20th    Space Available!

Tuscany is a classic, full of rustic and real adventures. Transport yourself back in time and make your own cheese, hike Etruscan trails, and harvest olives and make your own olive oil.



Relax in your private speedboat while cruising the coast of Amalfi. Take a dip and feel the cool sea against your hot skin. Yoga yourself high above the lemon groves, and fill your eyes with beautiful sea views. And when you come home, you may still be the same, and yes, you may go back to the same old job, but something in your mind will have changed. And trust me, that change’s everything.

2019 June and September are Sold Out!

2020 June 17th – 24th, 2020    Space Available!

This is what I call the “dream trip” of trips. We laugh, we play, we eat, we drink, and we cook. Do this trip once in your lifetime. GORGEOUS!



It’s a “Race with Gracie” to see who can get to the first truffle. Gracie is our Truffle Dog, and she has been trained since a puppy by Italy’s leading truffle trainer, our guide Gianni!
Other tours on the agenda we are offering for the spring?

Find yourself in a truffle field digging with Gracie, in a Barolo vineyard or Barbero’s age-old chocolate factory. One of our greatest pleasures is stretching our legs on hikes that show you the best stunning views around. Hike your way into farmhouses and vineyards for tastings and cooking courses. Throw in some marzipan, honey, hazelnuts and grappa and old and elegant cities. We think you would like traveling with us to Piedmont on our 8-day Extravaganza of food, wine and culture in this beautiful area of Italy. Full and exceptional days the normal tourist can only dream about.

“Piemonte is laden with delicious views and yummy foods, we take time out from our country digs, to visit F.I.A.T and the Egyptian Museum in Turin, Italy’s Northern-most city, oozing in elegance and beauty.”


With just a few spots left in our journey to France, come and explore the beauty with us! Sometimes you enter a place and you just know. It offers all the right feelings and comforts and magical moments one could ask for in a lifetime. That’s how we felt when we built this Itinerary. Our Enthusiastic team hopes you will experience this gorgeous week in Paris and Provence. From painting a van Gogh masterpiece in chocolate to the Lourmarin marketplace and an illumination show of old masterpieces in a quarry, to the charming hillside town of Bonnieux and our hotel’s 2-star Michelin restaurant, we think you will swoon!
