We are a small cohesive "family" of international professionals who have discovered (and rediscovered) this timeless gem in Abruzzo Italy. Our team came together organically, in a truly Italian way, around the dinner table. We all felt compelled to share this unique and authentic experience with travelers who are looking for a true taste of Italian life. We have over 100 years of travel, hospitality, wellness, and Italian roots between us!
We have curated exclusive, limited packages that combine nature, culture, food and wellness. This package offers a veritable taste of "la dolce vita". Abruzzo is the region in central Italy that boasts the highest peak of the Appenines and the largest national parks as well as beautiful beaches and picturesque, historical towns.
Our packages include lodging, all meals, some alcoholic beverages, cooking class, yoga on mountain, winery tour, beach strolls, trail hikes, and dinner at a Michelin star restaurant! All internal travel including pickup and dropoff at Fiumicino airport is also included. Indulge yourself and book your dream vacation today.
Our package is limited to groups of up to 8 people. We want to make your experience YOURS. Bring your family and friends and become part of our family!
We are an inclusive organization. We believe love is love and everyone has the right to live as their authentic selves.
We look forward to hosting guests that are like minded.
