Sometimes the best getaways are the ones that feel like home. DuVine's villas are hand-selected for their proximity to fully customizable cycling routes and activities that typify the region—whether it’s wine tasting, market-going, hiking, or truffle hunting—so you can live and play like a local. Add a private chef to enjoy local cuisine on your own time, and decide how to spend each day as it comes. For groups like our seeking ultimate flexibility and full-service luxury, unpack once and let the vacation come to you. 

On the heels of our highly successful trip this year to Burgundy, we are now scheduling a 2023 trip to Tuscany. Again partnering with DuVine Cycling + Adventure Co. (voted #1 in Travel & Leisure this year), Mark and Michael will be hosting a 7-day Italian trip featuring our very own private villa compound, a private chef and staff, planned and fully supported bicycling routes, and many other activities for those not inclined to ride everyday.  Further e-bikes are available for rent as we did this year in Burgundy.


Tour Highlights

  • Unpack once and enjoy an incredible week of riding from the same luxurious home base
  • Tailor your itinerary to your unique interests—including hiking, cooking classes, wine tastings, private yoga classes, and more—perfect for groups with mixed riding levels or non-riders.
  • Discover Tuscany’s cultural facets by bicycle, from Renaissance art and architecture to wine tastings and one-on-one time with locals.
  • Dine on a thoughtful blend of cyclist-friendly fare prepared by the villa’s private chef.
Experience Tuscany the Duvine Way
  • A bike trip for everyone⁠: with local guides and van support, each day’s cycling is completely flexible. Choose from daily long and short ride options, plus activity suggestions for non-riders.
  • Relax: all the trip logistics are taken care of—including airport pickups, grocery shopping, and transfers to dinners, local towns, wineries, and more. We’ll manage the itinerary beforehand, manage all the local bookings, and supply your bikes (and anything else you might require once you arrive).
  • Total flexibility: a private vacation with your own group means you spend every second as you please. Take a day off the bikes and go hiking or lay by our private pool
  • Local insight: from authentic dining at a locals-only restaurants to tastings with top winemakers, our on-the-ground team will ensure your vacation is special and seamless. Skip the crowds for white-glove service at our network of small farmers, chefs, artisans, and friends.
  • Drink: world-famous wines made from native Sangiovese grapes including Brunello, Chianti Classico, and Vino Nobile; international blends known as Super Tuscans; and—in classic Italian fashion—espresso and cappuccino
  • Eat: Hand-rolled pici pasta, pecorino cheese, olio nuovo (fresh-pressed olive oil), truffles, fava beans, artichokes, chestnuts, porcini mushrooms, Chianina beef, and cinghiale (wild boar)
The dates are July 2-8.  Courtier will also be hosting a two day pre-tour in Florence for anyone interested.

We have 6 openings left so if you are interested please contact Michael or Mark now for additional details.
