Your Book Club in Tuscany week is $1,450 per person (based on double occupancy)

You may choose one of three private rooms for $1,575.

Airfare is NOT included, but we can provide suggested routes and websites to find good deals.


Come with your Book Club, or come solo. After our Welcome Dinner on the first evening in the Villa, anyone you don't know will be a new friend.

Your bed in the villa, breakfast each morning, the meals we have at the villa – including the cooking class – and tickets or entry fees to the specified attractions.

  • Train ticket to Florence
  • Il Duomo in Florence
  • Cinque Terre Card
  • Tour & Lunch at Rio Grifone 
  • Tour at Badia a Passignano
  • Dinner at Pollo d’Oro

Price also includes transportation from the villa to the different locations in a Luxury Bus (except for the train to Florence). If you’d like to rent a car of your own for the week, let us know and we’re happy to help. A private vehicle gives you freedom to explore, or you can skip a day with us and plan your own adventure!
