Tuscany - A villa in...

8 Days Moderate

Our tour seeks to embrace the classic Tuscan blueprint whilst also staying true to our philosophy of seeking out the road less travelled and offering an authentic travel experience. Hence, whilst we still pedal the rolling hills of the Chiantigiana and visit some of Tuscany’s iconic sites we also open your eyes to some of the lesser known highlights that the region has to offer.

It is for this reason that we host our Tuscan odyssey at the villa 'Il Molinello' at the heart of the crete Senesi. This former mill, is built on travertine marble foundations, first used in the Etruscan period. Beautiful examples of Etruscan tombs lie just over the hill from the villa and in the 14th century a thermal spring was routed under the villa to run the grinding Mill (Molino), whose ruins have been renovated to form this classic Italian residence.

We pass through the region's premier wine area where you’ll find the villages of Montepulciano and Montalcino before heading up in to the heart of Chianti Classico country. We visit the fantastic towns of Siena and Pienza and ride the immaculate Val d'Orcia. Together with the timeless landscapes of Tuscany we also introduce you to a rustic cuisine that has few equals and we sample an array of Italy’s finest wines. Clichéd as it may sound Tuscany it not just a destination, it is an experience.
