Winter in Tuscany

Many think of the lazy days of summer but Tuscany in winter is Tuscany at its most intimate. Few tourists, it is the time when the locals take possession of their country again. During the winter months you can join them, and get the feeling of belonging to this magical region where culture and traditions are still very much alive, with many local festivals; celebrating Porcini mushrooms, chestnuts, truffles and newly pressed olive oil. You can come back to your Tuscan home and relax beside an open fire with a glass of wine and savour the gastronomic delicacies of the season.

November in particular is a month full of activity, the middle two weekends host the famous truffle festival in the Crete Senese. It also coincides with the olive harvest, which you might like to participate in and take a trip to the olive mill. Then, for those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving, you may consider Montestigliano as an alternative location. We will take the stress and strain, leaving you to enjoy a magnificent feast with your friends and family with turkey roasted in our wood-burning oven!
Please ask for our special winter activities.
