Perhaps Tuscany’s most prestigious region, Chianti, lies at the beating heart of Tuscany. Imagine yourself standing on a hilltop, gazing out at panoramic views of olive groves, Cypress trees, vineyards, and vibrant colors.

Supplemental meals, snacks, alcohol (excluding the wine tasting), souvenirs, airfare, taxes, and gratuity are not included in the price of the retreat.
