You”ll spend a day in the company of real Italians, fully immersing yourself into true Italian culture. Guided by one of the local Chiacchiarini family on their farm we take to the beautiful Umbrian countryside in search of any number of traditional ‘wild’ delicacies, whatever’s in abundance depending on the season. When we have enough for lunch -truffles, mushrooms, wild asparagus - it's back to the farmhouse for a cooking lesson and a big traditional lunch with the family and local friends and loads of fantastic Montefalco wine. « less

Did this adventure with 2 girlfriends on our second day in Italy, and we wondered how we could possibly top that day! Highly recommend this for the food, scenery, and hospitality. If you're a foodie and enjoy learning and mingling with a local family, this cannot be beat. Highly recommend and would give it 10 stars if I could!

Wow a truly unique and very special experience. Thanks to Mac and Francesca for their warm generous hospitality. We recommend this for anyone looking for an authentic Umbrian experience, set in a very traditional, family based community context. The food and wine served in a traditional manner and with plenty of spirit!

Best welcome ever seen in Italy, amazing landscapes, very good homemade cooking: this and much more is what you can find, spending a great holiday in Montefalco. Francesca and Mac are very available in teaching everyday simple things, like making cheese and pasta, and milking sheeps. Fantastic breaks offered with local red wine and ricotta let you live the real... More

This was the best day we had on our recent trip to Italy. First we went truffle hunting with the dogs , then had a taste of them in egg on the top of the hill, with wine and pecorino cheese, made on the farm. After that we watched Francessca make pasta by hand while we had more wine and... More

From the minute we arrived high in the mountains you could feel this was not your everyday tour. Mac ,Lucca and the family welcomed us with open arms and hearts. We experienced just a small window into a world you thought was long gone. The hospitality and warmth was genuine as was the great food and wine. To sit in... More

Mac, Francesca and the whole family treated us to a day of truffle hunting (the kids loved it!) and as much food and wine we could intake. I appreciated the taste of truffles a lot more as it was used to flavor omelets, fresh home made pasta and roasted duck. Since it was colder in November, we ate inside by... More

So lovely to see the property and skills handed down from generation to generation. Our day with the Chiacchiarini family and relatives was most definitely the highlight of our six week tour of Europe. We were a party of four and were joined by 10 other travellers. I say ditto to all the previous comments re truffles,pasta,wine and lunch.The atmosphere... More

We have just returned home fro a 3 week vacation in Umbria Italy. Without a doubt the most memorable days of all was the one spent with Francesca, Mac and family. We came away with a better knowledge of this beautiful land an appreciation for mountain farming. We were treated to an exciting truffle hunt followed by a picnic in... More

We were a party of six visiting Italy for three weeks in September / October. Of all the wonderful experiences we had during our vacation our day with the Montefalco Mob is the one we remember most. Mac and Francesca ( and Roberto) were fantastic hosts and we feel so fortunate that they permitted us to share a day in... More

Don't miss this opportunity to experience a true taste of Umbria. A remarkable experience and wonderful hosts make this a day to remember. Francesca and Mac share their home, family and talents in a welcoming, warm & relaxing way. Not sure which was my favorite part, the truffle hunt complete with scrambled eggs, truffles and Prosecco or the homemade pasta... More
