We’re happy to help you organise a range of extras to make your stay easier and more enjoyable. We have built up a range of contacts throughout Tuscany that can help with organising catering, cookery courses, guided walks, bike rentals, wine tasting and much much more. Ask your agent for details or look at our “Things to do” section.
Catering and Cookery courses
Learn to cook like an Italian! – we can ask a chef to come to your house and teach you how to make perfect pasta and immaculate involtini – and many courses also include visiting the local markets to buy fresh food! Alternatively you can let someone else slave over the hot stove, or peel the grapes, while you sip a Prosecco and wait for the gong to go… just ask your agent!
Pre-order your shopping
Would you like to find your fridge pre-stocked with delicious Tuscan delicacies and your wine cellar awaiting? Or perhaps just a simple bottle of red wine and some spaghetti? No need to stop at a supermarket on the way from the airport but just drive straight to the house! Ask us to organise a pre-arrival shop for you by writing to your agent.
Wine tasting and Chauffeur services
Tuscany is known for its excellent Chianti, and now also for the full bodied and delicious Super-Tuscans. Why not spend a day tasting these wonderful wines? From the large well-known estates to tiny family run vineyards, they are all worth a visit. And in case you over indulge, we can also organise chauffeur services for you, for you entire stay or just for a one-off trip. Just ask your agent.
Bike hire, guided walks and horse riding
Tuscany is a wonderfully varied region, from the rolling landscape south of Siena, the vineyard cloaked hills of Chianti and the steep apennine mountains and apuan alps in the north. Cycling and mountain biking are fun and rewarding, horse-riding can be done across the wilder parts of the region, camping overnight, and walking and trekking are excellent. If you’d like us to organise any of this just contact your agent.
Babysitting and Activities for children
We can find you a babysitter or organise all sorts of courses to keep the children happy while you soak up the sun – from a day making their own pottery, to a travel journal made in a book binding course, trips into surrounding countryside and cookery courses.. If you’d like us to organise any of this just contact us your agent.
