Village Vacations in Italy is a service designed to help you get the most out of your vacation in Italy. We put you along with your friends and relatives in the perfect vacation "Home Away From Home" in small villages in Umbria and Tuscany, the green heart of Italy


My tours include airport transfers to and from the airport and the villa.  Healthy breakfast each morning, dinners, day trips to other villages and towns, vineyard tour and even a cooking lesson!  Each bedroom has en-suite bathroom.  The villa also has a  beautiful swimming pool, solarium and it’s own chapel. My all-inclusive tours are everything you need to truly experience living “La Dolce Vita”  (The sweet life) that Italy has to offer.


Yoga and Meditation Retreats

Bring your yoga group to Italy and relax, practice yoga and meditate. There are plenty of areas on the property to to do so,inside as well as a rooftop area with panoramic views of the Umbrian hills.  Get off to a good start each morning with your yoga practice and breakfast before we head out to explore the towns and villages such as Cortona, Assisi, Deruta, for pottery, Montepulciano, for wine, and even a spa day to unwind in natural thermal mineral baths.  The options are endless. Hiking, biking and walking tours also available.

Umbria Olive Harvest

The fall is my favorite time of year to spend in Italy. There is so much going on.  The numerous festivals and sagras celebrating the harvest of wine, olive oil, and truffles. Slow down and experience the true Italian lifestyle without the  hustle and bustle of tourists.  I love picking the olives with the group and then afterwards we have an authentic Italian lunch with local wine.  We then take the fruits of our labor to the mill to be pressed and processed into “liquid gold”. This tour also includes day trips to other towns and villages as well throughout the week.  

Truly an unforgettable experience.


Weaving Through Umbria Textile Tour

The Weave Your Way Through Umbria Textile Tour pays homage to those who are preserving the artisan techniques of their predecessors, setting to work with love for their Umbrian land and, with an almost Franciscan commitment and great skill and passion, continuing ancient crafts and carrying them into the future. In the carefully thought-out activities in this itinerary, we bring you examples of that commitment, mostly in textiles, but also in the simple but exquisite local cuisine, handcrafted wines, lovingly restored structures and deeply held cultural traditions. We hope you are inspired and refreshed by this experience and look forward to sharing it with you.
