Design, Food & Wine Retreat


Hosted by designers Debbie Travis & Tommy Smythe

We are delighted to offer this special ‘once in a lifetime event.’ Debbie Travis is joined by multi-talented designer Tommy Smythe in hosting a retreat at the utterly glorious Villa Reniella in the heart of Tuscany. Focused on creativity, wellness and having fun, this is your chance to escape, relax and learn. The event is carefully planned and packed with take-home information. Join Tommy’s guided workshops on designing and decorating, cooking classes with Chef Francesco, early morning walks through the olive groves, yoga, E-biking, massage, enlightening forums with Debbie, artisan shopping, wine tasting and so much more.

Be inspired by the breathtaking surroundings, gorgeous rooms and the most delicious Tuscan cuisine in a friendly and informal setting. Share a luxury suite with a friend or relative or book a private room if you wish to come solo. The retreat is open to ladies and gentlemen and is limited to 18 guests.
