Food is a fundamental element of our center’s offering. We love preparing fine food and our kitchen staff is greatly appreciated. Each of our group’s has different demands and we pay great attention and devote much care to the creation of the specific menu to satisfy our client’s desires. Upon request we organize natural cooking classes by certified chefs.
Given our proximity to the lake of Trasimeno, we recommend a bike tour through the Val di Chiana to the ancient fortified lakeside town of Castiglione Del Lago.
Absolute must-sees are the various monasteries constructed through the centuries that testify the enormous influence left upon this vast territory by Saint Francis of Assisi. The Eremo delle Carceri di Assisi and Cortona, The Franciscan Path of Peace, l’Eremo di La Verna I the Casentine forest, are all important spiritual sites.
The territory where we are located is rich in history with countless suggestive places to visit such as the nearby centers of art and culture of Assisi, Perugia, Gubbio, Cortona and Siena. We are happy to provide information for those who wish to plan excursions to visit the treasures of these cities. Upon request we can also arrange tours led by certified native speaking English guides.
There are countless wineries located in the area. Visiting a prize-winning winery is a decisively “profound” experience given that each wine producer is a living example of the bond of love with his land. Tasting of fine wines and other local products can also be arranged directly in our center.
For our guests who desire to “spoil” their bodies with deeply relaxing and regenerating massages, we propose an expert Shiatsu service, or if a more energetic type of treatment is desired, a Swedish massage can be arranged. By appointment only
There are many thermal spas in the region. The closest is the beautiful Rapolano Terme with its large exterior thermal pools whose waters are particularly indicated for osteoarticular treatments and benificial for the respiratory system.
Cooking lessons are always as much fun as they are tasty. They are a regular feature of our activities and are always a great success with our guests. These classes convey the superb Italian culinary traditions that feature natural seasonal products prepared by hand. The classes always impart important little secrets for each recipe. The top hit among these kitchen experiences is without a doubt pizza making. Once rolled out, the pizza dough is covered with all kinds of fresh delights and into the oven it goes. It is as simple as it is fun to create all together.
A guided visit to the Archaeological Tree Museum (Museo dell’Archeologia Arborea), an open air museum with more than 400 types of trees (many on the list of endangered species), is an important experience for plant lovers, a rare opportunity to encounter a remarkable patrimony of fruits and flora.
Another exceptional museum dedicated to Mother Nature is Aboca. Rich in the history of herbs and medicinal plants from which modern pharmaceuticals have been derived.
