10 MAGNIFICENT DAYS

WHEN:

May 15-24, 2017

WHERE:

The first five nights we will be staying in a private, very traditional Tuscan villa with a pool and heavenly views. The villa is located in the countryside near towns such as Montalcino, Montepulciano and Pienza and Siena, a city in Tuscany famous for its cuisine, art, museums, and Unesco World Heritage medieval cityscapes. In addition to spending time enjoying the stunning villa, we will use this as our base to explore the local cities, towns, and glorious countryside.

For the last four nights, we will make our way to Florence where we will stay in our stunning, private apartment in a gorgeous part of the city. Florence is a world heritage city noted for its culture, Renaissance art, architecture, and monuments. Florence will steal your heart for she is an incredible city.

IT’S FOR ANY WOMAN WHO:

DREAMS OF DOING SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR HERSELF AND WANTS TO:

  • Share the visual and culinary excitement with a group of amazing women.
  • Enjoy life in our Tuscan villa and bespoke Florentine apartment.
  • Find artisans treasures and unique, items for her home.
  • Marvel in the beauty of Italian architecture and artistry daily.
  • Learn about creating a more exciting, creative home for herself.
  • Indulge in authentic Italian food and wine, every…single…day.
  • Rekindle her excitement and learn to create more for her life.

 Note: I want you to be explorers and adventurers with a carefree sense of fun.

GETTING TO THE VILLA

We will make our own way to the Tuscan Villa or the nearby train station because you are invited to come no matter where you live in the world and whatever airport you fly into. So let’s put on our big girl pants and everyone can make their own way there easily enough. Closer to the date we can help you sort out trains or private transfers from Florence or other airports to make things simple. The simplest way is to fly into Florence and we will help you to plan from there. That way you can concentrate on the logistics and questions like:

  1. What should I wear while I travel in Italy in the magic month of May?
  2. How can I sneak away from home so nobody knows I’m missing for 10 days?
  3. Should I have the mushroom risotto or the Florentine steak?

Once you have that out of the way, you can join me in “Ten In Tuscany” Design & Lifestyle Tour of 2017.

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 a 10 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. Goody…now, what are we going to do?

  • 5 nights in our own privateTuscan country villa accommodation with private pool, kitchen, alfresco dining, superb views, stunning countryside.
  • 4 nights in our centrally located private apartment accommodation in the heart of Florence.
  • You’ll share a room with another guest but a private room may be requested if available (extra cost)
  • You’ll also share the living spaces and kitchen so it’s like a girls weekend on steroids.
  • Our group will be accompanied (part of the tour) by a photographer.
  • The photographer will capture memories of our group trip with pics as a keepsake.

  • Connect with new people and share special times together (over wine)
  • Come with friends or come alone…we don’t care. If you are fun, happy, easy to get along with then you are welcome.

  • A welcome cocktail and antipasto party at our villa.
  • Selection of light snacks and refreshments in villa and apartment.

WHY RUN THIS TOUR?

I have 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 in Italy in May this year on my Design Tour 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, stimulate your design brain and nurture your inner creativity with a small group of fun-loving women. We can do all of this while sipping a little chianti by the pool, giggling on the Piazza steps or chatting with Fabio by the fountain.

HOW IS THIS TOUR DIFFERENT?

We stay in large apartments and private villas together and it’s kind of like a 10-day sleepover party where we all share a house. 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 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 8-10 women in total and we are all about nurturing fun and frivolity within a small group. We are here to enjoy what each day brings, not checking off lists of “must see” sights.

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 to artisans workshops, savour wine in intimate trattorias and visit homewares stores so beautiful they will blow your mind.

This is different…it’s about design, art, creativity, architecture, magnificent scenery, beautiful stores (and maybe just a little shopping…shhh this can be our little secret).

ARTISANS AND ALLEYWAYS

DAY 1:  MONDAY MAY 15 – COUNTRY & CHIANTI The excitement begins when we check in at our private villa accommodation (which is stunning by the way). This is your own time to settle, relax and recoup from a big day. We’ll get to know each other over an afternoon aperitif, feast on antipasti before enjoying our first Italian dinner together.

Today’s Lesson: The elements of creating a Tuscan-style home. How to create a warm and welcoming environment.

DAY 2: TUESDAY MAY 16 – SITES OF MEDIEVAL SIENA

Today we head to Siena, one of the most picturesque towns in the region. We soak up the views while enjoying a full day exploring the gorgeous town and savouring the sights and sounds of one of the most beautiful places on earth while soaking up the local atmosphere with new friends.

Today’s Lesson: Using your smartphone to capture the perfect holiday images.

DAY 3: WEDNESDAY MAY 17 –  ENTERTAINING TUSCAN STYLE  

Today is a villa day, time to pamper ourselves, sit by the pool, take a walk or bike ride and enjoy our stunning location. Today for lunch will prepare the meal as a team in the villa and settle in for a very long Italian lunch. You’ll learn how to create the perfect Tuscan lunch so that you can replicate it at home and impress the socks off your friends.

Today’s Lesson: How to plan a Tuscan Dinner party the easy way.

DAY 4: THURSDAY MAY 18 – TUSCANY TOURING

This morning after breakfast you’ll need to take a deep breath, for today you’ll be experiencing a full day of overwhelming beauty in the Tuscan countryside. We’ll make our way to some gorgeous Tuscan towns, enjoy the magnificent views, wander the cobblestone streets and visit the gorgeous local stores. We’ll head off to enjoy lunch and multiple wines at a local winery and arrive home in time for a relax and some down time at the villa.

Today’s Lesson: Garden design for our homes..bringing the outdoors in.

DAY 5: FRIDAY MAY 19 – FREE TO BE DAY

Some women like walking, some like shopping (a lot) some like exploring. So today you have a free day to choose what you’d love to do most. Options include enjoying a glorious walk through our local area to explore more local towns, wander the streets and have a long lunch. Enjoy the villa area surrounds, take stunning photographs, enjoy relaxing by the pool. Whatever you choose to do, you cannot go wrong in this amazing area. Of course, we will be there to help you plan the perfect day in whatever way we can.

Today’s Lesson: Creating a vision for our own lives. How to make it happen.

DAY 6: SATURDAY MAY 20 –  FABULOUS FINDS IN FLORENCE 

Today we pack and head off to enjoy the next four nights in amazing Florence. After settling into our stunning apartment, we will hit the streets to soak up the local atmosphere and explore some of the most stunning stores in Florence. Prepare to have your mind blown away with the beauty of it all. This place is special in every way.

Today’s Lesson: Buying bespoke. Buy once…buy well.

DAY 7: SUNDAY MAY 21 –  TRINKETS & TREASURES

Today we visit the delightful antique markets and hunt for local treasures for our home. Scour through beautiful old wares and treasures that will become a perfect memory of your tour. Tonight we will need more food because we can’t resist it. We will dine out at a local restaurant, tell stories about our day and generally enjoy the company of a great group of women hanging out in a beautiful Italian city.

Today’s Lesson: Mixing the old and the new in your home…How to do it successfully.

DAY 8:  MONDAY MAY 22 – GARDENS AND GRANDEUR

Today we set off to enjoy the incredible garden design of the green lung of Florence, the Boboli Gardens. We will enjoy unrivaled views over Tuscany before heading to Pitti Palace an incredible building with frescos that will leave you breathless. We’ll enjoy wine-tasting over a three-course lunch before experiencing San Miniato al Monte the Piazzale Michelangelo. We’ll follow the winding path and stone steps that scale the hillside from the Arno and Piazza Giuseppe Poggi to find views that rival any in the city. The red rooftops and rolling hills of Florence will stretch out before you.

Today’s Lesson: The how and why of formal, traditional garden designs.

DAY 9: TUESDAY  MAY 23 – ALLEYWAYS & ARTISANS

We’ll take a morning stroll along the Arno River before heading to a neighbourhood which is virtually carpeted with a maze of these small workshops on tiny side streets, representing  some of the most historic enterprises in the city. The group will have the opportunity to see some of these craftsmen at work; observing their meticulous practices and the tools of their trades. Then it’s off to meet our guide for our personal artisan tour where we peak behind the scenes of the city’s’ most creative and inspiring creators. Tonight I envisage a few glasses of Chianti on a rooftop bar, followed by an evening meal that will make you fall in love all over again.

Today’s Lesson: Buying bespoke items as mementos of your trip.

DAY 10- WEDNESDAY MAY 24 – 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 take my optional add-on tour in the Italian Riviera. It’s on offer for a small group, interested in experiencing the stunning coastal areas of Italy such as Portofino, Santa Margherita, the Cinque Terre, Chiavari, Rapallo for 8 glorious days of design and lifestyle on the Mediterranean.

Today’s Lesson: Finding your inner creative voice.

SPARE TIME ACTIVITIES

I have created plenty of opportunities for you to have some free time. You could head to the Uffizi Gallery to admire the outstanding art and architecture, visit the local food markets, browse Mercato Centrale and collect some local specialties Take time to visit the Piazza del Duomo (the jewel in the city’s crown) and its three UNESCO World Heritage buildings. Walk the 463 stairs to the top of the top of Brunelleschi‘s “La Cupola” to check out the Florentine skyline. Let’s not forget too, that this city has the most incredible shoes, bags, coats, and clothing as well as stunning homewares, so you may like to slip in a little shopping ladies.

GARDENS AND GRANDURE

I REALLY WANT YOU TO COME IF YOU:

  • Want to hang out with incredible women.
  • Want to learn more about creating a more interesting home.
  • Want to find beautiful home wares to go in it.
  • Want to witness the beauty of Tuscany morning, noon and night.
  • Dream of hanging out in a private Italian stone villa.
  • Love having long, leisurely meals in beautiful places every day.
  • Want to reignite your creativity and design knowledge.
  • Enjoy meeting new people and creating memories with new friends.
  • Love wandering down cobblestone streets and peeking into artisans stores.
  • Always embrace having fun and taking in beauty 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)
  • Want every part of every day organised and can’t make decisions for yourself.
  • Are a drama queen when everything does not unfold perfectly.
  • You are overly sensitive and take life too seriously.
  • You want a big tourist group and guides with flags (this is not what we do).
  • You are not prepared for a little adventure and daily creativity.
  • You can’t tackle steps (Italy has lots of them) and a lot of walking.
  • Don’t want to eat and drink authentic Italian food and wine multiple times every day.
  • You are scared about what might happen to your waistline.

VISIT SPECIALIST STORES

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 ten 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 savour them as much as 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 Tuscany. We’ll rummage around at the antique markets, run through the vineyards, and hang with the locals and try to speak Italian over a glass of prosecco. I speak half my sentences in Italian and the rest in English. I don’t pretend to be perfect and I don’t want you to feel that you have to be perfect either. That way we’ll all be a good fit.

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 and homes and Tuscany is the perfect place to teach what I know.

HERE ARE THE PERKS!

EVERYTHING IS PLANNED FOR YOU

I have spent crazy amounts of time planning this tour so that all of the organising is done for you. Even though you will have time to choose what to do in your spare time, all the options will be laid out for you.

That means you can just enjoy coming to Italy without the stress!

PERSONALIZED SERVICE & SUPPORT

You are not dealing with a large company here. You are talking directly to me. I will answer your questions and help make the decisions so much easier. I am just a phone call or email away.

This means that if you are unsure about something, then you can just ask me directly. If I don’t know, I’ll find out.

TRAVEL PLANNING

I work closely with a travel agent who can help organise all of your flights and travel details. She will help find the best-priced flights on the dates that suit you best and at rates to match or better those you can find online.

Don’t waste time Googling, just ask me.

PRIVATE FACEBOOK GROUP

As a special guest of my tour, You’ll receive an invitation to join my private Facebook Group for registered guests only. This is a great way to connect with others before you go, ask us questions and maintain friendships when you return.

This brings us together before the tour and makes staying in touch fun and easy.

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, 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.

As far as the trip, I loved Florence, every corner was a wow moment. The buildings, people, art, architecture, culture, did I say, the people? I loved everything about Florence.

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 great in beautiful locations and very comfortable beds. Finally, did I mention the highlight was the friendship of women.”

– Michelle, 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 Mearns, 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, 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 Ten in Tuscany + Revel in the Riviera Tour together (save by booking both) as they almost back to back with only one day in between. We can help with accommodation on that in between day.
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 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 on those meals, the women in the past tours set up a kitty to make payment at restaurants easy. This worked really well and made our lunches fun and stress-free. The last thing we want is nit-picking when it comes to payments.
WHAT IS THE STORY WITH ALCOHOL?
At the lunches and dinners provided, I will supply a few bottles of wine to have with our meal. Any other drinks you order beyond that will be at your expense. 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 stay 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 either twin or group share depending on the accommodation. If you are traveling 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 a shared villa or apartment as we are not staying in hotels.

If you want to add the Revel in the Riviera Tour to the mix then you can add it on to this tour. With only one day in between (we can help with your accommodation), it makes things super easy for you to create your total tour experience to Italy. Find out more about it here.
