GETTING TO RAPALLO, ITALY

We will meet in Rapallo because you are invited to come no matter where you live in the world. So let’s put on our big girl pants and everyone can make their own way to the accommodation easily enough. We can help you sort out info regarding trains or private transfers from Florence, Piza or Milan and provide a map and details. We’ll help to make it easy so you can concentrate on the logistics and questions like:

  1. Should I wear a bikini or full piece on the beach?
  2. How am I going to sneak away from home for my time out in Italy?
  3. Should I have still or sparkling wine with my spaghetti marinara?

Once you have that out of the way, you can join me in my Revel in the Riviera Design and Lifestyle Tour of 2018.

HOW IT WORKS

I will be your host but not your tour guide and I want to make this clear right here and now. I am not a travel agent, nor a tour guide, I don’t speak Italian (but I’m learning) and I am not going to play mother (because I have done it for nearly 20 years and it’s tiring). I have this super itinerary planned, however, you will need to be a little independent and make your own decisions. I am here to make sure I create an 8 day holiday with design, creativity and lifestyle in mind and a holiday that will go down in your history as one of the best times of your life EVER.

WHY RUN THIS TOUR?

I had been dreaming for years about creating a trip for like-minded women to travel and be inspired by the design, creativity, craftsmanship, colour and vibrancy of Italy. After visiting the Italian Riviera for the past few years on my Design Tours with a pretty cool group of women, I was even more convinced that it was something I needed to keep doing and there was nobody doing anything quite like this.

This is a tour about women, sisterhood, forging friendships and enjoying an enviable lifestyle in one of the most stunning places on earth. As women, we don’t always give ourselves permission to do something special for ourselves and because I know that you are so busy and that you most likely wouldn’t take the time to plan something like this, I wanted to place it right in your lap. This is an incredible opportunity to explore some of the most glorious parts of Italy to stimulate your design brain and nurture your inner creativity with a small group of fun-loving women.

I am also pretty passionate about seeking out beauty, and finding places, experiences, buildings, scenery, artisans and creatives that can show us that beauty. I wanted us to be immersing ourselves in it all and to escape from the routine of daily life and open our eyes to the excitement around us. I wanted an experience for you that would fill you with so much joy and happiness rather than a tour that just ticks off the must-see list.

HOW IS THIS TOUR DIFFERENT?

We stay in a large, private villa together so it’s kind of like a 9-day sleepover party. There are no boring hotel rooms where you are isolated and cramped into a shoebox. It’s all about experiencing true Italy, Italian decor and authentic accommodation together in style. Women say this is the best part of the tour and by sharing a home, they’ve created long-term friends for life.

There are no huge buses, big bustling groups and guides with flags. This is a personal tour with 8 women in total and we are all about nurturing fun and frivolity within a small group. I have a highly planned agenda, but the tour is also flexible. If we decide to change plans as a group then we can. If you want to sit something out and head to the beach, then let me know and we can accommodate that.

You are not going to stand in long queues and waste your precious holiday time. We are going use every moment of your time in Italy to do unique and interesting things that big tour groups don’t do.We go behind the scenes, savour wine in intimate trattorias and sneak down tiny streets so beautiful and colourful that they will blow your mind.

This is different…it’s about design, fun, creativity, architecture, magnificent scenery, beautiful stores (and maybe just a little shopping).

DAY 8 – SUNDAY JUNE 27 – FAREWELL FRIENDS

Today after breakfast we will say our farewells, shed a few tears and wave off our new friends. You can either continue on your travels (because there is so much to see and do in Italy and flights are very reasonable) or head home with fond memories and a happy, contented heart.

I REALLY WANT YOU TO COME IF:

  • You want to hang out with incredible women.

  • You love wandering down cobblestone streets and peeking into artisans stores.
  • You always embrace having fun and enjoying each day.

I’M NOT SURE THIS IS FOR YOU IF:

  • You don’t like sharing a home with a group of amazing women (This is not hotel living)
  • You can’t tackle a few (lots of) steps….this part of Italy has lots of them.
  • You don’t have a reasonable level of fitness and stamina.
  • You aren’t prepared to make a few of your own simple decisions.
  • You are a drama queen when everything does not unfold perfectly.
  • You want a big tourist group and guides with flags.
  • You are not prepared for a little adventure and daily creativity.
  • Don’t want to eat and drink authentic Italian food and wine every day, multiple times
  • You are scared about what might happen to your waistline.

WHY TRAVEL WITH CARMEN?

CREATIVE SOUL WITH A LOVE FOR TRAVEL     carmen circle

After visiting Italy I just knew that so many women would love to do the same as me and experience the country from a design and lifestyle perspective and I wanted to bring women who wanted that together.

I WANT US ALL TO DO SOMETHING WE’RE PASSIONATE ABOUT

We work hard and life is busy. I want to create something super-special so we can just live life to the full for nine blissful days. It’s about finding yourself, igniting your passion and renewing your zest for life.

LOVE OF TRAVEL, ART, HISTORY, ARCHITECTURE AND COOKING

These are my passions and they fuel me and most probably you too. I wanted to share all of these things with a group of women who will appreciate and connect with them like I do.

FUN AND FRIENDLY

Tours that are serious are not my cup of tea. I embrace life in a fun and friendly manner and this will be no different in the Italian Riviera and savouring the sights and tastes of The Cinque Terre. We’ll squeal with delight while having a dip in the sea and hang with the locals and try to speak Italian over a glass of prosecco.

SHARE WHAT I KNOW AFTER YEARS IN THE INDUSTRY

Each day I want to share a little of what I have learned about creating a home and life we love. I want to help women be more expressive in their lives, find more moments of joy and work towards doing things in their life that they truly love.

HERE ARE THE PERKS!

EVERYTHING IS PLANNED FOR YOU

                          HERE’S WHAT MY PAST GUESTS HAVE TO SAY 

    “Wow, where to start? I absolutely loved the tour! I’ve just re-read your dream “to create something unique and special for women, in a context of friendship and sisterhood”. Well, in my opinion, you nailed it!

    As you know I travelled from Australia solo. There are many highlights. However, if I can only choose one, it would be the company of the lovely women on the tour (including yourself Carmen) who all shared the same passion for travelling to Italy on an adventure. Despite our varying knowledge of art, architecture, food and wine choices, the language, our health all being so diverse, we shared laughter and happiness together every day. It has been wonderful to be home and continue the contact with new friends and it is hopefully just the beginning of long lasting friendships.

    The guided tours you organised Carmen deserve a special mention too. The guides themselves were delightful. I personally enjoyed the tours to the private studios to see first hand some extremely talented artists (and I’m not even an artist) however it was very personal and unforgettable. Having a chauffeur through Tuscany, again, brilliant. I felt like I was in a movie set so much of the day.

    Leaving a family behind to go and travel is not easy for any mother. However, my husband, my teenage son and daughter are proud of me for going and doing something for myself. I didn’t expect that. They gained independence and faced some of their biggest fears like ‘separation anxiety’ and became more resilient knowing that mum can go away alone and she comes back happier and healthier than when she left. How good is that!”

    Sarah Byrne

    Bowral, Australia

    “I think for me the best memories I have are of the friendship shared. The laughing, celebration of birthdays, amazing dinners, deliciously different wine the friendships enriched, renewed and discovered, the caring of others, and the caring we had to do for ourselves. It’s hard sometimes to stop in your busy lifetime to be you again. To be just you, nobody’s wife, mother, employee, or boss, gave a sense of freedom, this itself was a really thrilling experience, and I think we don’t get to do very often.

    We didn’t have to think about cooking, washing, meetings, school pick up, and to be away with a group of women was a great privilege.

    The places we visited were spot on for me, the tour guides were such a great addition and gave such a personal insight to the places we visited, especially the artisan tour. The accommodation was also in great locations and had very comfortable beds. Finally, did I mention the highlight was the friendship of women.”

    Michelle Smith

    Brisbane, Australia

    I definitely had no hesitations in purchasing a Design & Lifestyle Tour. Carmen made me feel at ease from the very start and she was helpful in every way. Any questions I had were answered very promptly and with a lot of knowledge. The inclusions which were offered on this tour made the decision very easy.

    It was a great opportunity to spend some quality time with other like minded ladies who enjoy travel and meeting new friends. It was so easy being “myself” and being accepted from the start. I had to pinch myself “several times” and kept telling myself it was great to be alive and to have this fabulous opportunity to be able to discover Italy with Carmen’s tours.

    The organisation and Carmen’s attention to detail, but relaxed approach made these tours run to plan. Everything was very well organised, from our train travel, dinner reservations and not to mention our “Drop Dead Gorgeous” luxury accommodation which I can only imagine it would have taken Carmen months to source. I was not disappointed at all and with this said, I would not hesitate to take another one of her Tours in the near future.

    I would definitely and with no hesitation recommend any one of Carmen’s Tours, as it’s a great opportunity for the “sisterhood” and a “once in a lifetime” adventure for the soul!

    Carmen puts her heart and soul into creating these tours, making it a very memorable experience for me which I will always treasure and never forget.

    Until next time Italy,

    Diane

    Brisbane, Australia

    “I can’t thank you enough for organising the trip of a lifetime for me to Italy. You put so much thought and research into the trip and we did some wonderful things that I would never have thought to do, like the wonderful wine tasting lunch in Florence, the visit to the winery in the Tuscan region, visiting the artists in Florence and our many fantastic dinners and lunches throughout the holiday.

    The apartments we stayed in were stunning and I have stayed in a lot of 5-star places in my life and they were by far my favourite digs.

    It was just a groups of girls having a great time together and sharing a lot of laughter and making memories. I have made friends for life and can’t wait to do it again with you.

    Carmen Hearns

    Sydney, Australia

    Italy, my happy place. Whether it be in a historical city, a quaint village on the water or in the rolling countryside, you will see beauty in everything around you. Not to mention the food, wine, and accommodation. This was an amazing trip made even more special with the friendships that evolved. I loved it!

    Sharon Gee

    Brisbane, Australia

    Did you have any hesitations about purchasing Carmen’s tour?

    Initially, I did, only because I thought it was a lot of money to spend on myself and also the fact I was concerned about not being close by for my Mum. I had thought I would do the Tuscany tour and that Al would possibly meet me after but that wasn’t to be so considered it was a long way to go for 10 days so then decided to partake in the Italian Riviera leg.  

    What changes did you see within yourself on the tour?

    I learnt to just enjoy the time away and let go of worrying too much about others at home, in the knowledge that all would be well.

    What specific things did you like best about Carmen’s Tour?

    I thoroughly enjoyed time out with other women and just being in the present.  We all got on so well and there were so many laughs.

    Would you recommend Carmen’s tour? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would, you had planned and co-ordinated this tour so well and your wealth of knowledge and experience in regards to Italy made it so easy for those of us who had never been to this part of the world.  

    Is there anything else you’d like to add?

    Just to say that you are a very caring person & I appreciate all the effort & preparation you made to ensure this holiday became a reality for the likes of myself.  I will cherish the memories Carmen….so thank you.

    Michelle Cross

    Maleny, Australia

    DO I NEED TO DRESS SUPER FANCY?

    No. This is a very casual holiday so you will need smart casual day wear, some walking gear and a couple of nice outfits for dinner. High heels are not necessary and not overly practical for cobblestone streets. Please travel light as you don’t want to be burdened with huge suitcases, plus there are many shopping opportunities to buy lovely things.

    ARE FLIGHTS INCLUDED?

    No. You will need to book your own flights because everyone is welcome to come no matter where they live and whatever carrier they prefer to use. Maybe you have frequent flyer points that you would like to use?  We are here to help you and with my own dedicated travel agent by my side, we can help with all your flight and travel planning. Just ask me.

    DO I NEED MY OWN TRAVEL INSURANCE?
    Yes. You must have your own travel insurance to come on the tour and will need to provide copies of the insurance to me prior to departure. Without travel insurance, you cannot join the tour.
    CAN I TRAVEL PRIOR TO THE TRIP OR AFTER IT IS FINISHED?
    Yes. You can definitely take advantage of being in Italy and head to any number of amazing places. We can help you with that. You may like to do the Gems of Italy Shopping Tour prior and add them together as they are back to back with only one day in between. We can help with accommodation on that day. Alternatively, consider the Villas and Villages…Tuscany Tour with a break to do your own sightseeing in between. So many choices…
    DO I HAVE TO BE FIT AND HEALTHY?
    Yes, you must be fit and healthy as the tours require a lot of walking during the day and Italy has a lot of steps. You also have to be responsible for carrying all of your own luggage as we are not staying in hotels with porters. If you suffer from any major illness or health issues that you cannot manage yourself with ease, unfortunately, this tour cannot provide the level of care you may need.
    WHY AREN’T SOME LUNCHES AND MOST DINNERS INCLUDED?
    I want to keep the trip flexible and on some days we will choose to go and do our own thing which gives you the chance to eat when and where you like. If we do eat together for lunches, the women in the past tours have set up a kitty to make payment at restaurants easy. This worked really well and made our lunches fun and stress-free. For dinners we eat out together you will contribute 35 euro for your meal if you attend. This means you are not locked into eating with the group if you want to have a night in or want to eat somewhere of your choice.
    WHAT IS THE STORY WITH ALCOHOL?
    I will supply a few bottles of wine to have with our meal at the two included dinners. Any other drinks you would like can easily be purchased close by and stored in the villa fridge. If you don’t drink alcohol then that is okay but please be aware that it will be a part of many of the lunch and dinner experiences and if you find it uncomfortable, this may not be the tour for you.
    IS THE ITINERARY LIKELY TO CHANGE?
    There may be a few little tweaks to the plan, but ultimately it will say very similar. Plans change depending on weather, restaurant availability and group decisions made on the day. I like to have a solid plan, but I am also open and flexible to changes.
    WHAT IF I CHOOSE NOT TO DO AN ACTIVITY THAT HAS BEEN PLANNED?
    Please notify me prior to the tour if possible if there is something that you choose not to do. If you decide on the tour not to do an activity then that is perfectly fine however the tour will proceed with the planned itinerary without you. We can certainly assist you with alternative ideas.
    WHO WILL I SHARE WITH?
    Accommodation will be group share. If you are travelling with a friend, I will ensure that you are together. If available, you may request your own room at an additional cost. All accommodation is at shared villa with a total of three shared bathrooms. We are not staying in hotels on my tour because they bore me and are not enough fun.
