A taste of the food and wine of northern Italy on this multi-centre holiday to the towns and surrounding countryside of three gastronomically-renowned regions.

Start in Lake Garda...

Start your holiday with a relaxing stay at the Villa Cordevigo, a 5-star wine resort in the peaceful village of Cavaion Veronese, in the heart of the Bardolino vineyards. Set amidst private parkland with views over the vineyards and rolling hills, the villa has a spa and an outdoor pool with separate jacuzzi. The shores of Lake Garda are a 10-minute drive away and Verona around 30km away.

The hotel’s Ristorante Oselette recently received its first Michelin star and at dinner, you can choose from an à la carte menu or one of two degustation menus, with personal wine recommendations from the sommelier. You may also like to try a private tasting of the villa’s own wines and renowned regional vintages such as Amarone, Ripasso, Valpolicella Classico and Soave.

...continue to Faenza...

A gourmet trip to Italy without a brief interlude in Emilia Romagna is almost unthinkable. Your 3-night stay at the Villa Abbondanzi in Faenza will give you the opportunity to experience the strong tradition of fish dishes which is typical of the Romagna and also to visit some of the towns to the north, such as Bologna, where the cuisine becomes more robust, with prosciutto, tortellini and parmesan cheese taking centre stage.

The Villa is perfectly placed for exploring some of northern Italy’s smaller art cities, with Ravenna, Ferrara and Bologna close by. Set amidst spacious parkland, it has an outdoor pool and well-equipped spa, with jacuzzi, sauna, Turkish bath and gym.

...end in Montepulciano

Stay in the heart of the area that produces the world famous Brunello of Montalcino and Nobile di Montepulciano wines, at the Relais San Bruno, an exclusive B&B on a countryside estate just outside Montepulciano. Enjoy freshly-baked cakes and croissants for breakfast and let brothers Alberto and Federico arrange everything from wine-tastings to local restaurant bookings.

With Montepulciano’s centro storico close by and Siena, Cortona, Perugia and Arezzo all within an hour’s drive, relaxation time may be in short supply, but the spacious rooms and suites, a lovely pool area and small outdoor fitness area all ensure an extremely comfortable stay.


Please note that this is a sample itinerary and holidays can be organised combining any hotel, duration and method of travel.
