Puglia, with Tuscany Under The Skin

EXPERIENCE THE REAL TUSCANY

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 humour, hospitality, traditional skills .... and a love of good food and wine.

We also offer a Grand Tour of Italy exploring Venice, Florence, Tuscany, Positano and Rome. Belissimo Italia!

Our tours are fully guided by Ugo or Barbara Mariotti. About Ugo & Barbara ...

Testimonial: "Your great gift is to facilitate a feeling of intimacy with the people, the land and the history - even for total strangers. We can never forget the sights you showed us and the local folk you introduced us to; meeting the grand dame of local wine during our late evening walk on the cobblestones of an ancient hill top village ... and the many other local rhythms of the area that you shared. Around every corner was another discovery ... In the company of Ugo it always feels that we were the first to ever discover these riches ourselves." - Oliver Schofield. More tributes ...
