POST ON YOUR DREAMBOARD

Truffle Tuscany

This week we introduce you to Lupaia, a former goat farm turned gorgeous country estate in the heart of Montepulciano, Tuscany (the main house dates back to 1622!). If you’ve got plans to travel to Italy this fall and have truffle hunting front and center on your dreamboard, this is the place to do it. The local truffle hunter (yes, they have a local truffle hunter) will take you out to search for them with his dogs, then bring you back to the estate’s restaurant where they’ll cook them up into a homemade pasta for you.


SLEEP HERE

La Calandra

If you’ve been to Italy a few (or more than a few) times, and are in search of truly off-the-beaten-track destinations, make a beeline for Lampedusa. One of the Pelagic Islands south of Sicily, it’s actually closer to Tunisia than to mainland Italy, and it is a goldmine for beach lovers. We have our emoji heart eyes clapped on La Calandra Resort at the moment, actually a small boutique hotel perched on a cliffside in what can only be described as paradise. A highlight guests love: Heading out daily onto the turquoise waters with the hotel’s boat crew, who will make you lunch while you lounge and swim.

WISH WE WERE HERE

Italian Fix Tours

Because we’re a small, boutique company, we know each of our guests by name, and that family feeling carries over into our tours. Year after year we have repeat bookings, with some doing tours they’ve already done before just to be able to come back. One of our September Sicily tours this year is almost entirely booked by a group of women who met on our Southern Italy tour in 2019. They loved it so much, they decided to do another Italian Fix tour — all together! We’ve got a few spots left on our Cinque Terre tour in July, and some September availability on both Cinque Terre and Sicily. Send us an email with the subject TELL ME MORE, and we’ll send over more info. We’d love to welcome you into the fold!
