The experience of participating in one or more activities can often embrace the most pleasure and memorable moments spent whilst on holiday. We would like to introduce you to some wonderful activities and excursions that we have been fortunate to experience on our travels. These activities mainly available throughout different regions of Italy and some of them, for example walking, cycling, and health programs, we can also offer in Europe, Britain and Ireland, allowing you the chance to meet the local people.

Walking & Hiking Tours are available for those who wish to tour the coast or countryside on foot, breathe in the fresh air and smell the wild flowers and herbs along the path in the company of an experienced regional guide. The tours available are for different levels of fitness and a variety of interests, whether it is for flora, bird watching, photography or simply to enjoy the experience.

Cycling Tours designed for all fitness levels and accompanied by a qualified guide with experience of the local knowledge, the historical sites and countryside. Independent tours are also available, providing a daily route plan, bicycles and maintenance support. This is a wonderful opportunity to discover the region with time to indulge in the gourmet delights found in small village restaurants. Tours can be customized from one day to one-week packages.

Truffle Hunting in Italy is an experience to remember, being part of a traditional way of finding (hunting) a valuable delicacy in its natural environment. Following the hunt you will be provided with a tasting and an explanation on the use of the truffle in Italian cooking.

Creativity Tours are for those who wish to immerse themselves in some artwork, surrounded by the splendid scenery of vineyards, olive groves and medieval villages. These tours allow you to share time with a local artist and work from these special locations.

Health & Relaxation Programs to assist in the wellbeing of one’s body, through exercise, yoga, meditation, pampering therapies, and anti-stress techniques. Italy, Britain and Europe host some of the world’s renowned Spa Resorts that offer the opportunity to break your journey for two or more days with a little relaxation and time to spoil yourself. These programs visit places of outstanding natural beauty. Relaxation therapies are also available at some of our country houses and hotels, so why not spoil yourself in preparation for the rest of your journey.

Health and relaxation therapy services are also available in other destinations beyond Italy, Europe and Britain, so please ask us at the time of making your booking.
