Fall in love with Chianti on day one of your Tuscan adventure with a private tasting at Castello di Albola. Standing in this medieval castle on the magnificent Chianti hills, it is hard to believe that you are just over an hour outside the city of Florence. The Zonin Family have lovingly restored the 16th century property to its former glory and today, the estate spans over 900 hectares. See the best of what this pristine estate has to offer with a guided tour of the vineyards and historical cellars followed by a private tasting of 5 wines paired with local cheese and charcuterie.
Continue your trip through the Tuscan countryside with an afternoon stop in the UNESCO-protected Renaissance village of Pienza. Surrounded by the wonderful hills of the Val d'Orcia, Pienza is quite possibly one of the most romantic villages in Tuscany and has inspired poets, writers and artists throughout the ages. Once you have wandered the streets of Pienza, you will be brought to your home for the night – Lupaia; a hidden gem in the heart of the Tuscan countryside.
Spend day 2 enjoying the comfort of Lupaia where special activities like private cooking lessons, wine-tasting, a picnic in the olive grove or Negronis served in a secret pergola at sunset with panoramic vistas of Montepulciano can be arranged to create a truly unique stay.
The unique style of accommodation at this former goat farm lies in the combination the old structures with modern day comforts. The ancient buildings have been carefully restored to provide a haven of relaxation. Every room is unique with lovingly selected details, stunning views of the surrounding countryside and all the comforts of a luxury hotel.
