Bespoke Walking & Food tours in Italy
A Low cost Gourmet Food Safari in Le Marche combining cookery lessons with guided walking in Italy
Many of our past guests have a shared passion for food, for cooking and for getting out and walking and hiking whilst on holiday in Italy.
So this year we have created a Low cost gourmet tour of Marche Italy that includes guided walking and bespoke cooking courses.
A gastronomic holiday in Italy to indulge the senses that balances local culinary delights with fitness and health.
This walking food tour is based at award winning Villa San Raffaello and puts you in the hands of professional mountain guides and chefs with many years’ experience.
We are passing on their services at cost price and have halved our own prices to boost tourism this year.
An experience that allows you to share the locals’ cookery secrets and skills, and to learn about and eat wonderful locally sourced food. The walking tours will then get you under the skin of this incredible area, helping you to learn about its flora and fauna, history and geography, whilst burning off those delicious calories.
Walking in Italy
The guided walking trips take place in the stunning local Le Marche part of the Appennine Mountains, an area described by Italians as “All of Italy in one Region” it is scenery that combines the best of Tuscany, the Dolomites, Alps and Italian Lakes.
The Itaian Cooking classes
The Italian cookery courses take place a stone’s throw away and will teach students to make a starter, main course and sweet each day from the best locally sourced ingredients. Lunch will follow the cooking lessons and will include wine and coffee.
Food walking tours prices start at €229 per week.
The foodie fitness holidays take place at one of Italy’s most beautiful villages. Sarnano with its proximity to the Mountains, its great shops, locally produced food, bars, restaurants and Spa make it the ideal spot to kick back after a day at cooking classes or trekking in the Italian countryside.
Le Marche Region
There are also many other beautiful Le Marche landmarks, medieval villages, beaches, lakes and historic places of interest nearby for trips and tours if you fancy a day off. We can also include a half day wine tour and visit to a fantastic farm making the most amazing organic raw cheese.
Please note that all weeks run from Saturday to Saturday, guided walking and cooking classes take place during the week.
This offer is being made to encourage guests back to the Marche Region after Earthquakes last year and reflects the fact that there may be daytime noise due to essential works at Villa San Raffaello this year.
