Its glorious rolling hills and classic Tuscan charms have long made Chianti a hit with discerning travellers worldwide. And on Sunday 15 May 2016, they’ll have an added reason to visit – one of the most decisive stages of the 99th annual Giro d’Italia (Tour of Italy) will race through the region’s vineyards.
We’ve been tailor-making holidays to coincide with this Lycra-clad spectacle for as long as we’ve been in business. Each year we utilise our local contacts to ensure we can offer our guests the kind of front row experience they won’t get anywhere else – and 2016 is no exception.
This year we’re delighted to offer four very special properties, which, along with that authentic Italian holiday experience our guests have come to expect from us, will put you up close and personal with the elite athletes as they navigate the winding tracks of this luscious part of the country. Call us today to find out how the eager-to-please owners of these wonderful Tuscan hideaways are going the extra mile to ensure you witness this colourful display at its most intimate.
