Wednesday John met with Tuscany Consultant Paola and San Fabiano Fattoria guide, Claudia (she works for the Count who owns the Villa) and he has committed to invite guests to share in this experience again in 2017. He has reserved the last two weeks of May for the Villa. ( May 20 – June 3) He will probably come to Arezzo sometime in March, stay in an apartment, and finalize all the arrangements for the group. The price is $1800/pp double room occupancy (a single room is $3600). This includes daily breakfast and maid service for each room AND 2 dinners at the Villa prepared by Lalla, the chef and cooking class instructor. There are 9 bedrooms and all but two bedrooms have their own bathroom (2 bedrooms share a bath) so give this some thought, tell your friends and sign up early. Remember, he really needs commitments by the end of this year to make this happen again. I am coming again if I can get a job to pay for all this fun!
He will guide you on how to get the most out of this experience: which hilltop towns to visit, ride the train or rent a car, which restaurants to enjoy, the most interesting museums and Duomos to visit, wine tastings, a cooking class and much more. He has been visiting Tuscany for 25 years.
If he can’t answer your question about Tuscany, Paola can help with anything.
