What is Secret Dining Hub?

Secret Dining is when someone uses their house or some other space to run a cross between an amateur restaurant and an intimate dinner party.

This group helps you to hear about local secret dining events and it's also a place where anyone planning to host an event can advertise and sign up guests.

There'll also be local events and trips to different amazing places to take your dining experience to the next level!

Tuscany/Umbria - 1 week in Private Villa

Needs a location

Stay in a private villa in the Italian countryside of Umbrian and Tuscany for 8 days. We’ll take day trips to picture-perfect Italian towns for wine tasting, a cooking class, local market visits and more. You’ll still have plenty of free time to enjoy the villa too. See below for some information. Email [masked] if you have any questions. Check out pictures from previous trips here : https://flic.kr/s/aHsmGa22Dh Tuscany/Umbria Villa Trip (8 days / 7 nights) Dates : - May 23 - 30, 2020 *SOLD OUT! - May 30 - June 6, 2020 *4 rooms left! 1 solo female from SFBA is signed up! Cost : $2900 (excluding flights) Single supplement : $700 Details : http://globe-drifters.com/tour/tuscany-umbria-villa-1week/ You will have your choice of room in the villa, but they vary in size and are on a first-come, first-served basis. Visit the website above to see the different rooms available. Itinerary : - Day 1 : Arrival - Day 2 : Citta della Pieve - Day 3 : Pienza & Montepulciano - Day 4 : Assisi - Day 5 : Citta della Pieve - Day 6 : Cortona - Day 7 : Citta della Pieve - Day 8 : Departure Included : - 7 nights accommodation (double occupancy) in private villa - Local Italian guide/concierge - International airport pick-up from Rome - Daily breakfast - Welcome dinner - 3 lunches - Tour host/representative - Activities as indicated on itinerary (see website) Our villa was built in the early 1700s and renovated into a holiday home with each room in the villa having a private, full bathroom. It’s on almost 5 acres of beautifully kept gardens and fields and also has 2 swimming pools. The villa is on the Tuscan/Umbrian border, halfway between Florence and Rome. Perfectly located to explore lots of nearby places. The villa is about 1 km from Città della Pieve (about 15 mins on foot). A charming town with just over 7,000 residents with several eateries and cafes to choose from as well as a grand wall that dates back to the 1300s. Città della Pieve has won the Pio Alferano 1st Prize as the most perfect town in Italy and it’s only 1 km from our villa! Most other villas in Tuscany/Umbria are about 5 - 15 km to the closest town so a car would be needed which can be very expensive. Other villages within walking distance from other villas only have 100 or so residents and lack basic amenities. Our villa is perfect thanks to its close proximity to the town. We’ll most likely be the only visitors there which makes it a great escape from the droves of tourists in nearby cities. There will be a local host/concierge available daily to help arrange activities, excursions, etc. in your free time. If you want to rent a bike or car, tour a balsamic vinegar factory, visit a saffron farm or anything else, the concierge can help you arrange it! If you are interested or have questions, please email : [masked].
