Idyllically perched on the much-loved hills of Fiesole, Villa San Michele, A Belmond Hotel, gazes down at the city below, offering a truly spectacular view. Following on from the successful summer events series at the luxury hotel that’s housed in a former monastery, their autumnal calendar looks equally set to charm and entice with a host of culinary and cultural activities. From the lush typically Tuscan woodland that embraces the villa to the striking fifteenth-century loggia that’s home to the restaurant, every corner is picturesque and made all the more memorable with the events on offer.

Truffle Experience

Truffles and their many mysteries are at the centre of this rich, nature-filled experience that allows you to immerse yourself in the fascinating world of Tuscan truffle hunters. Savini Tartufi comes from a family that has devoted their lives to truffles over four generations. The first day gives you a chance to meet the producers over an aperitivo to get to grips with the prized tuber and its curious characteristics, before you enjoy a perfectly curated truffle-themed dinner created by Executive Chef Alessandro Cozzolino, completed with a wine pairing by Prunotto of the historic Piedmontese winery estate in the prestigious Langhe wine area. The second day sees you set off to Savini Tartufi in Forcoli to take part in an authentic truffle hunt. A delectable lunch follows with Savini’s mouthwatering products and the season’s freshest truffles.
