To set the scene, you will stay 7 nights in an authentic Tuscan stone villa, similar to what you may have seen in the famous film “Under the Tuscan Sun”, mainly because Fattoria Le Giare is located in the surrounding countryside of Cortona, the exact village that the movie was filmed in. Downtime at your villa involves poolside relaxation featuring breathtaking views of the rolling Tuscan hills.
For all those ladies whose Tuscan dream was inspired by the novel and film “Under the Tuscan Sun”, you will love GG’s “Under the Tuscan Sun” day tour where you’ll explore the popular sites of Cortona as seen in the film. You’ll also love your new “Under the Tuscan Sun” gift bag which includes the signed novel by author; Frances Mayes, a gorgeous sunflower pendant and a bottle of vino from Bramasole- the famous villa where main character, Frances stays in Tuscany.
Many hours will be spent wine tasting, cheese tasting and eating like a local, which of course, always means a glass of vino in hand at some of Tuscany’s most jaw dropping locations. Sam Gimignano and Chianti are two of our fave spots visited.
Of course, for those shopaholics, you are not forgotten, our tour features a visit to a 3rd generation, underground jeweller where you’ll learn the art of jewellery making and dine in your favourite piece of jewellery. Further shopping opportunities on your independent day trip to Florence, the city famous for its leather.
No trip to Italy is complete without a vespa ride. If you’re feeling adventurous, ride your own vespa, or simply relax, sit back and enjoy the breeze as you let an experienced vespa rider lead you through the beautiful Val d’Orcia region.
Ohh we can almost feel the warm breeze and the summer sun waiting for us in Tuscany x
