ACTIVITIES + USEFUL INFO
Updated Nov 6, 2018 : check in advance if any of the below activities is a deal breaker !
A really popular activity is a truffle hunt. It starts with a beautiful morning walk through outstanding scenery. You arrive at the woods. You are taught how to hunt out the truffle. Then, the chef, Leonardo, who is guiding you, cooks up, alfresco, the most amazing truffle dish. And, you are treated to a slap-up truffle lunch with unlimited wine. Currently, this is No 1 favourite activity !
However, all the activities we recommend are popular.
By request, Leonardo will also come to your apt/villa and cook up a storm of a feast for you. At the same time, if you wish, he will teach you how to prepare the food, at no extra cost. However, it can be more convenient to arrange catering with the onsite restaurant, managed by Romeo. Romeo will arrange picnics on the lawn and/or a BBQ in front of the villa.
Leonardo charges about 35 to 45 euros/head for a group of 5 or more persons, depending on the menu, to include unlimited excellent local wines. 4 persons or less costs 160 euros minimum. You can negotiate with Romeo, according to the menu and your requirements.
Between Leonardo and Romeo, you are spoilt for choice !
And, if you wish, you can be hosted at Leonardo’s family home in Spoleto….. minimum of 6 persons required… but, often there are a lot more of our guests attending such an event…. From all over the world ! This is a VERY popular event – costs about 30 euros/head.
Further, and, especially popular with children, is a supervised picnic with a donkey (or more) or a pony (or more) with expert donkey and horse owners. After an easy trek, you picnic in an idyllic spot…… unlimited fine local wines for the adults and a feast for everyone. And, the children or child gets to have a ride on the donkey or pony !! Please note that we have donkeys large enough to carry adults too. So, depending on whether you wish to ride or walk will determine how many donkeys or ponies you wish to hire.
And, we offer all the usual activities such as wine and olive oil tastings.
ALL ACTIVITIES ARE SUBJECT TO DEMAND AND THE SEASON.
All our activities are much cheaper than those you see advertised on the internet. This is because we believe in sustainable tourism and all the profit goes directly into the pockets of the local people who prepare and present these activities – all totally authentic ! We make no profit from them so there is no “middle man” raking off huge profits, which is often the case with such activities run by foreigners living in these areas and funding their lifestyle off such activities !
PLEASE ARRANGE ANY OF THE ABOVE WITH LAURIE WHEN HE MEETS AND GREETS YOU…..
