Plans are finalized for our second Italian adventure in the beautiful land known as Ciociaria.  As “ourcarolinafamily” writes about their Italian family in their blog, “Lurking within this undisturbed territory is, of course, the real Italy. People from all over the peninsula lay claim to living in the real Italy, but they are wrong. The real Italy lies here, in the Comino Valley, north of Naples, south of Rome, high in the mountains, surrounded by the Apennine peaks.”  Our own guests last year felt as though they became part of an extended Italian family.  Mady, one of our workshop participants wrote, “Thanks for a wonderful workshop experience.  Ciociaria is a beautiful region filled with amazing scenery, food, wine and people.   You and Giulio made us feel part of your “family.”  This was a magical experience that I shall never forget.”

Come join us and see for yourself the magic of central-southern Italy.  Only a stones throw from The Eternal City, step back in time, drink the same wine favored by Popes and Roman legions, still produced on small family farms, and rarely enjoyed outside of Italy!  We’ll be in town for the celebration of the grape harvest in Piglio, during the Sagra dell’uva Cesanese.

Plenty of time to plan for our next Italian adventure. With this year’s great experience under our “berets” we’re ready to organize Discover Ciociaria II (DC II). Staying just outside the beautiful hill town of Serrone at Belsito, Serrone, a hotel/restaurant with swimming pool. We’ll keep you posted, naturally. Our aim: to provide our guests with a genuine experience of Italy, off the beaten tourist path. We work with family and friends in Italy to ensure the best possible value for our guests. You’ll feel like you’ve found your Italian home! (I have!) Painting, cooking class, excursions, incredible food (and wine), all inclusive. Details will be posted in a few weeks, but if you’re interested, send me a note and I’ll make sure you’re notified.
