October provides the opportunity to see and enjoy Tuscany like no other month allows. Fall is the time of harvest; Mushrooms, chestnuts, truffles, olives, mmm….our farm to table meals will be that much more delicious!
Not to mention the harvesting of the grapes. The Tuscans area has over 60 different varieties of grapes – imagine a walking to the local vineyard to sample some of their selections. On our walks and day trips we will be surrounded by thousand of colours and sounds – a feast for our senses.
