C. Sue PorterFrom fairfaxThis is my first tripYou have to do this!!This was truly a memorable vacation. It felt like being with family who took the utmost care of us and gave us an experience I will never forget.The activities added such a rich dimension to the Italy experience -made it so much more than a sightseeing trip. Kudos to Suzy and Bill!
Anne SullivanFrom ACTONI've been a handful of timesOutrageously WonderfulThe ultimate way to experience the very best Umbria has to offer with respect to food, wine, history, scenery and hospitality. A jam-packed week with spectacular food and wine. A varied itinerary included guided tours, truffle hunting, ceramics painting, chocolate making and getting to know the wonderful people of Umbria. Marco and Chiara rock as 'house parents'. The trip of a lifetime.
BarbaraFrom Alexandria, VAI'm practically a nativeFall tourWhat a remarkable week! Suzy and Bill, Chiara and Marco orchestrated a perfect introduction to this corner of Umbria. Coming "home" to the farmhouse after a full day of adventures was a highlight. Meeting our hosts' friends and families, among them very talented artisans and cooks, brought deeper meaning to our experience. And our hosts went to great lengths to meet my personal wish list for the trip. I'll have great and lasting memories of my time in Cannara.

RitaFrom Fort BelvoirI've been a handful of timesExceeded All Expectations!I just returned from the Fall Tour and it was more than I could have every imagined. Suzy and Bill, Marco and Chiara are the most amazing hosts. They literally anticipate all of your needs. I've traveled to Italy several times, but never to Umbria. I loved seeing the region through the eyes of those who truly understand and love the people, the towns, the food and let's not forget the wine!. The best part--I didn't have to make a single decision the entire week. I felt completely relaxed for the first time in months. I loved it so much that I will be renting the house with family and friends next summer...and I can't wait!
Virginia GrossFrom Kansas City, MOI've been a handful of times
Nick & Eloise GmurFrom Bellport, NYI've been a handful of timesEat, Drink, Tour... Repeat.This was our second one week Umbrian excursion with Bill and Suzy. They are wonderful hosts, anticipating our every need - even a few we did not know we had- and making this a totally enjoyable seven days. From the moment you arrive in Rome you are taken care of - food, drink, tours, adventures (wagon ride to the winery anyone?) are planned and executed perfectly. No wondering what to do next, or who is going to pay for what, you simply relax and enjoy. The tour guides were excellent, and the places visited diverse, revealing many parts of Umbrian life. And the food and wine were bountiful and outstanding. Staff at the Cucina are warm and friendly, and willing to help in unexpected ways - I admired the milk frother used for the coffee and Chiara immediately offered to get one during her next trip to the grocery store. Perfect! The house is lovely and comfortable, life in Italy for a guest at the farmhouse is easygoing. Both of us have heartily recommended the tour to many friends. Go!!!!!
