Tuscany With the Whole Crew
It’s hard to believe we are already halfway through summer. Here at TTG, we’ve been busy with some large groups who chose Tuscany for their special occasions.
We recently planned a trip for a couple celebrating their wedding anniversary with a group of friends- ten couples. They opted for the relaxing luxury of Casa del Sole, and here’s what they had to say:
The trip of a lifetime! We stayed at Casa del Sole for a week in May 2019 to celebrate our 20th anniversary with friends. The two villas on the property were idyllic and perfectly Italian, overlooking the rolling hills of Tuscany just down the hill from Cortona. The updated villas were stocked with all our needs and the staff on-site was amazing. Our day trips to Siena (35 min drive), Florence (1 ½ hour by train from the Cortona station), Montepulciano (40 min drive) and Montalcino were easy and perfect. We loved the town of Cortona which was just up the road from the property and really wished we had spent more time there. Our in-home cooking class with Chef Francesco was a great hit with all of our guests. Laura and Brandy were so helpful in all our planning and sharing their expertise with us. It was a perfect trip! Thank you, Laura and Brandy!
Another couple celebrating a special anniversary decided to bring the whole family, and then some! Their group of 25 took over Casa di Lusso. Sounds like they had fun:
We are home and settling back into reality after a wonderful trip to Italy with friends and family. It was truly a trip of a lifetime! Thank you for all of your help with this trip. Don’t know how I could have done it without you!
We loved our day trip to Lucca. We all enjoyed the lunch you set up for us, and especially the bike ride. Beautiful city! That evening we went to the restaurant just down the road from Casa di Lusso. Dinner was lovely! At first it was difficult to communicate with them, but by the end of the night, the owner was bringing out grappa and limoncello, and before I knew it my Mother in law was hugging the Italians at the next table to us and our friend was high-fiving the owner!
We really enjoyed the winery trip you arranged to Colle Beretto. We all learned a lot. The place was beautiful, not to mention the wine was phenomenal. The lunch and tasting were pretty spectacular! I don’t know how we could have topped off that day anymore, but we did with the pizza party back at Casa di Lusso. That was probably one of my favorite nights. The setting was stunning.
One day, several of us stayed back at Casa di Lusso and enjoyed a relaxing day at the pool, and a few of us had massages. We enjoyed a buffet dinner that evening at the villa, which was delicious!
We loved our day in Montalcino. What a cute little town! We especially enjoyed the lunch you arranged for us at Boccon di Vino. The view was to die for! Not to mention the Brunello wine. We then visited the two wineries you arranged for us. We really enjoyed both, but the second winery was probably our favorite wine of the trip. Afterwards, we went home to Casa di Lusso to have dinner that was prepared by some in our group who did a cooking class that day. I heard from those that did it that it was fabulous. They really cater to the kids.
Such great memories. Thank you Brandy and Laura!
