Location: The Green Heart of Umbria

I am featured in several guides including the 2010 edition of Lonely Planet Tuscany & Umbria, BBC Travel Website, and the Umbria Slow App - feel free to contact me for information - a presto!

BICYCLE TOURS  Tour along country roads with a professional Italian guide through the beautiful vineyard and olive grove covered hills of the Umbrian Valley, stopping in small villages along the way. A full Umbrian Picnic lunch in the countryside completes the day.  Hiking also available.

COOKING CLASSES Cooking classes are held in a restored 17th century villa in the small village of Cannara, located in the heart of Umbria between Asissi and Spello or in guest home/villa. They are based around the best local ingredients in season, and includes making antipasto (appetizer), primo (soup or pasta), secondo (main course), and dolce (dessert) followed by a lunch (eating what we just made, of course!)

PRIVATE CHEF A classic Umbrian dinner prepared directly in guest home/villa, using only the best local and seasonal ingredients. Dinner is composed of antipasto (appetizer), primo (soup or pasta), secondo (main course), contorno (vegetable side), and dolce (dessert). Wine included.

HORSEBACK RIDING A 45 minute tour on horseback (no experience necessary) through the vineyards of the Terre Margaritelli winery in the countryside of Torgiano (just outside of Perugia), followed by a tour of the winery, wine tasting and lunch.



Tour a local family-run farm which raises a variety of animals and participate in the wild-asparagus hunt in the spring, seasonal black truffle hunting and Umbrian cheese-making all year long.  Typical lunch included using products from the farm.

A tour of a 200 acre local farm which raises Chianina (the true native cow of Italy), Cinta Sinese pigs, sheep, birds, and various crops. Included is a brief demonstration of butchery and/or salumi making followed by a lunch using products from the farm.
