Umbria Olive Harvest Adventure

Spend a week in the fall and experience the Olive Harvest. Slow down and experience the true Italian lifestyle – the meals, the wine, the olive oil, the art and the people.  See how the olives are picked and then brought to the mill to be pressed and processed into “liquid gold”. This tour also includes day trips to other towns and villages as well.

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.



Weave Your Way 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.

These are just a few of the rentals we can book for you.
