2015 Departure Dates
A Unique Curated Small Group Experience
The 2015 dates for the week-long Tuscany Tour with SimpleItaly at Villa Pipistrelli south of Siena are: April 11-18, April 18-25; October 3-10, October 10-17.
Program hosts Sharon and Walter Sanders met, fell in love, worked and married in Tuscany. Their award winning simpleitaly.com blog helps people all over the world celebrate their Inner Italian.
SimpleItaly has partnered with the Donati family of the Montestigliano estate to create a week in Tuscany like no other.
Sharon is a Certified Culinary Professional of the International Association of Culinary Professionals, a food writer, cookbook author, and teacher. Walter, a private business consultant, formerly developed escorted tour programs to western Europe, Mexico, central and south America for Cartan Tours and was a Certified Travel Counselor.
“We lived in Tuscany,” says Sharon, “and we want to share the experience of unpacking just once, settling into the luxurious Villa Pipistrelli, and feeling the rhythm of a secluded and majestic Tuscan location. The meals, prepared by personal chefs, reflect the culinary integrity and wine heritage of Tuscany.”
“Instead of spending precious time behind the windows of a tour bus, we immerse you in a special destination,” says Walter. “We bring experts, authors, artists, cheese makers, and foragers to the villa so you guests engage with them. The few jaunts we take off the property are nearby, and they open worlds normally not discoverable by tourists.”
“Tuscany comes to life in April, with a freshened tempo. And October is a harvest dance, celebrating the close of a growing season,” says Sharon.
Tuscany Tour with SimpleItaly is limited to 12. It is ideal for self-formed groups of family, friends, colleagues . . . or couples traveling independently. The cost is $2,995 per person, double occupancy, ground only. All meals are included.
Here’s what some SimpleItaly guests have to say:
June Hudson, Jenkintown, Pa. — “Don’t hesitate on this one. It’s a calm, laid back approach to the beauty of experiencing Tuscany, just like the people of Tuscany live their lives on a daily basis. Thank you Walter and Sharon for creating an experience we never could have.”
Dennis Ashley, Summerville, S.C.— “The activities were well thought out, better than any summer camp could be. Come to think about it, this was summer camp for adults … with wine! If a wonderful week in Tuscany is on your bucket list, this is a must do.”
