My first experience in Italy was joining my mom, Jane Reeves for her beautiful “La Dolce Vita” retreat in Tuscany. Driving our Fiat through the winding and rolling hills in itself was a delight! Vineyard after vineyard adorns the land as well as many historic hill towns throughout the region.
We spent time exploring Montalcino, Montepulciano and Pienza. These towns are so well preserved from their original state that you feel as if you have walked right into the medieval times. Cobbled streets, beautiful flowers, abundant trattorias and of course gelaterias :). Rich history, ancient chapels and beautiful architecture at every turn. On the retreat you will have the opportunity to visit one of these towns with the group and of course you can rent a car and have the freedom to go exploring as you please.
After our adventures visiting hill towns along the way we continued to make our way to Fattoria del Colle, the beautiful winery and agriturismo where the retreat is being hosted. Envision driving down a winding road, sun is shining and there are billowing fields of wild flowers mixed with ancient grape vines. Dotting the rolling hills are villas and ancient castles in the distance. Some are preserved and remain home to centuries of one family and others are abandoned relics from the past, magnificent structures crumbling as the elements come and go each season, still catching admiration of those passing by.
As we get closer to Fattoria del Colle a feeling comes over you, a warmth and an invitation to relax. It’s a beautiful slice of Tuscany that you, the client of Radiant Jane Retreats is given the opportunity to be a part of. The landscape is peaceful, breezy, tranquil and calming.
