Welcome to Italy and to this unspoiled area of Tuscany where we live. Come with us to experience its landscape of Crete hills and stretches of woodlands, olive groves and vineyards.

Meet its people who have retained their Tuscan character, their humor, hospitality, traditional skills... and a love of good food and wine. Tours are fully guided by Ugo or Barbara Mariotti who live and work on their picturesque farm growing grapes and olives in beautiful Southern Tuscany.

Because we've made our life here in Southern Tuscany on an old farm producing wine and olive oil, we know the area and its people. We've also lived and worked in other areas of Italy which we've come to know and love equally well. Over the years, responding to the wishes of visiting friends and clients, we’ve developed a range of winning Tours based on this knowledge.

Small group tours - we prefer to cater for a maximum of eight guests whom we guide ourselves.

At a pace to suit - traveling time is kept short so you have more time on the ground. Guests can choose to explore on their own, go shopping or just sit and watch the passing parade...

Magnificent food & wine - we're well able to recommend the best regional dishes and local wines including the D.O.C. & D.O.C.G., plus those special places to eat. Che buono!! Most tours include a cooking lesson and meal in farmhouse kitchens or aristocratic villas.

Tours tailor-made - we've been particularly successful in designing customized tours for individuals, families and private groups. Let us know what you’d like to do. Or we can arrange one of the advertised tours at a time to suit you.
