Welcome to Soul Sparkle ITALY 2019!
Join us September 18-23, 2019
Join us September 2019 for an extraordinary Soul Sparkle experience and the magic of Italy! This will be a gorgeous adventure exploring the beautiful hills of Tuscany. We will experience the luxury of the rustic but elegant style of a farm in the tuscan countryside.
You will fly into Florence or Pisa international airport where you will transfer to Pontedera. We will pick you up and head to the hillside to our organic farm, in the heart of Tuscany, not far from Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Siena. Let yourself be carried away by the charm and idyllic atmosphere of the farm, where we will enjoy the pleasure of staying in the majestic rolling Tuscan countryside, in a small farming community producing wine, olive oil, pasta, fruit jams and preserves. The farm is close to the historic center of the medieval town of Volterra.
We will dine on the terrace overlooking the Volterra hills, enjoying home cooking using traditional methods and ingredients grown on the farm. We will discover the cuisine of Tuscany at its finest. Pizzas, crusty breads and cakes baked in traditional wood oven. "Mens sana in corpore sano" is the motto here when preparing food here on the farm.
Only the highest quality ingredients, with produce sourced from sustainable farming methods guaranteeing extraordinary results. Every item is carefully selected and sourced locally directly from the farmers. We will enjoy the wines, honey, olive oil, cheeses and vegetables grown right on the property. We will experience a cooking class here on the farm utilizing all the locally grown ingredients and traditional methods of cooking. This will be an extraordinary week and I can't wait to share it with you!
We are so excited to share this experience with you! We will enjoy wine tastings, an olive oil class and outdoor activities like hiking, bike riding, and horseback riding combined with the culture and cuisine of Italy. There is an optional yoga and meditation session each morning and a soul sparkle masterclass each day. There is an optional day of shopping in the beautiful towns of Volterra and San Gimignano. This is a very special and magical place where you feel so at home and so very loved. We can’t wait to sparkle with you in Italy!

The courses are taught by the chef and take place in the restaurant kitchen at the farm.
-Truffle day at the Farm:
In Italy, in particular Tuscany, one of the most exported products is the truffle. It is an elite product with ancient origins, and is used in the preparation of refined and exclusive dishes. We will experience a truffle excursion on the reserve, where we will find many truffle varieties, among which the black truffle, and the Marzolino white truffle – one of the more appreciated truffles.
We will have an expert guide along with their truffle dogs to teach us how to search this noble truffle and how to remove it from under the ground. When we return to the farm, we will enjoy a special dinner, with various dishes made with the truffles found that day.
-Olive Oil Class
A fundamental component of Tuscan culture is extra virgin olive oil. The farm grows a variety of olives, typical of this region: leccino and moraiolo. The trees are tended to throughout the year to guarantee an optimal harvest. To ensure the best quality, the olives are picked during the months of late September until early December, when the olives are at the height of their maturity, and have a low level of acidity. We will tour the olive groves and pick by hand, press them and learn how to to create a rich and delicious oil and you will get your very own bottle to take home with you and enjoy a very special dinner including dishes with oil we make that day.
