Atop a broad hill in the countryside of Tuscany stands a sixteenth century villa. The beautiful Villa Certano, has been in the Baldassarrini family for generations and is now owned and managed by Annalisa and Ruggero Baldassarrini. They will welcome us into their timeless and magnificent home. We will experience an enchanting and romantic 12 wonderful days focused on herbs, health, culture, and rejuvenation. Beautiful grape vineyards, olive groves, beehives, vegetable and flower gardens roll gracefully through the hills surrounding the villa as they have for 500 years. The hills are still actively tended, produce harvested and made into exquisitely delicious wines, olive oil, honey and food for the table. A church built over 1200 years ago rests between the winery and villa. The ancient walled city of Siena is just minutes away and Florence, one of the most renowned cities for art in the world, is an hour’s drive.
