 If you’re a woman who is looking for adventure, Italian vistas, and a boutique retreat experience, please join us in the Tuscan Region of Italy.

 

The city of Florence is a vivacious place full of wonderfully iconic experiences, food, and fun.

 

Come with me to the heart of this amazing city and enjoy the added bonus of a special day trip to explore the wonder of Venice!

This retreat is for you if you...

swoon anytime you’re on social media and a post of some great Italian dolce is being eaten in front of you… or maybe it’s the views of the Tuscan hillsides, or the ceramics, or the pasta, or the lemons… something makes you sigh and tell yourself,

 

“That’s it… I’m going to Italy!”

But then you’re like:

Wait...

  • I don’t know the language.
  • Or the culture.
  • Or how to get around.
  • Or which are the best places to see
  • Or to eat
  • Or to shop
  • Or where to stay…

Well, I just want you to know:

I’ve got you!

It’s my joy to have 100% of my heritage in Italy.

And to have been curating the most lovely, delicious, boutique, gluten-free retreats for years for extraordinary women just like you who crave a life-changing, memory-making, get-away where you not only go away to Italy...

What to Expect:

Day 1

Arrive, get settled and open your treasures that are made in Italy waiting for you in your room and then, freshen up and relax before we see our first sunset aperitivo from the hotel rooftop overlooking the gorgeous city of Florence.

Day 2

Luxuriate in our favorite spa in the city with Prosecco and noshing after your swim and massage (or did you want a facial instead -- the choice is yours!). Then, float back to your residence, grabbing a gelato and maybe a scarf on the way, so that you can shower and nap before our delicious dinner of traditional Tuscan fare.

Day 3

It's time to get to know the Renaissance capital of the world as we walk a guided tour with street foods and sips of wine, bites of chocolate and strong coffees to wake your senses and introduce you to a city you're about to fall madly in love with. We will end the tour at Mercato Centrale where we will lunch the way the modern Florentines do. After a little post-lunch shopping in San Lorenzo market, you can wander until we dine together that night for our Pizza and Pasta night at one of our favorite gluten-free restaurants!

Day 4

You will awaken to the bells of the Duomo Cathedral and feel like you're in your very own movie. This day is all YOURS as you shop and sight-see, maybe take a vespa ride, or a walk along the Arno River... you can take in a museum or step inside a church to "ooh and ahh" -- or grab some gelato and listen to a street musician. If you need ideas for lunch or something fun to do or places to shop, I've got you! Plan the day of your dreams before we circle up to a lovely wine and cheese night time at a trattoria filled with Tuscan classic dishes!

Day 5

It's time to catch the train to Venice! A day filled with the very best that the city on the water has to offer: A gondola ride, St. Mark's Basilica, and a tour filled with Venetian delicacies and historic details will leave you wanting to go home with your very own, hand-blown Murano glass to anchor the memories of this special day together!

Day 6

Who wants to cook on vacation? Well, we do because it's so much fun to have the amazing chefs guide us through our gluten-free cooking class for lunch -- so that we can make AND break bread together in the afternoon on our last full day together. We will need the energy to burn as we finish our shopping for treasures to take home from Italy and we share our last scrumptious Italian meal together.

Day 7

Our breakfast and final circle time will bring us all together as we close our retreat with a send off filled with blessings and love until we see each other again in bella Italia insieme (together!)

'Thank you’ isn’t enough to say. It’s forever indebted. I mean, there’s no amount of money, there’s no amount of praise, or offering you can give to somebody for opening the doors to your dream -- I don’t know how you do that -- other than to say, ‘I love you.’

Shelley Jean W., Orlando, Florida

I was so afraid of being with all these women that I didn’t know. I was really afraid of not being able to be authentic. But being with all these women and the love we all shared and showed each other… There’s almost no words for it, except that it was beautiful.

CarolAnne M. RSM, California

The connections are the best part. Because when I was thinking about what this experience was going to be like, I thought well, of course it’s Italy so, I’m going to love it. I love Stacey, I trust her. And I don’t have problems making connections with other women, but I thought, “They’re just going to be different from me.”

But the word connection has nothing to do with similarities or differences - it’s just about an openness. Feeling this lifelong bond with these other women -- not only because of the shared experience but because of who they are - and the love and honor that they deserve and that I want to give them and that I feel from all of them. So, it’s the best part of the trip… the connections with the other women.
