Tuscan Gourmet Retreat


Food is a way of life in Italy – and in Tuscany, it is always local and fresh.  So, if you adore Italian food, wine and wonderful company, join us for a unique culinary experience. Come solo, as a couple, or with friends – the guys are invited for this retreat!  Join your hosts Debbie Travis and Chef Francesco, an extraordinary Tuscan chef, for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure as we explore the hidden gems of the Tuscan cuisine, inspirational cooking classes, alfresco meals and world-class restaurants. Take part in winetasting at fascinating wineries and castles, truffle hunts, foraging and extraordinary shopping as we venture off the tourist map.  Your home-away-from-home, Villa Reniella, offers luxury accommodation, breathtaking views, an infinity swimming pool and a 100 acres of walking trails through vineyards and olive groves.

Share a stunning suite or book a private room if you wish to come solo.  Places are limited to 20 guests.
