...Join us for week of Olive Picking, Community & Dolce Vita...
As the days get shorter and we ease into Fall, October is a magical time to Experience Monestevole. It's always been our favourite time of year here.
Join us for a week of delicious hand-prepared Umbrian cuisine, lively conversation and plenty of Monestevole's own organic Sangiovese as new friendships form around the dinner table and in front of an open fire.
Meet folks from around the World...all interested to explore a simpler, more sustainable way of life.
Mornings will offer optional activities of feeding the animals, lending a hand in the organic veggie garden and gathering olives from our 300+ trees. During your stay we'll take a trip together to the local mill, to watch our olives being pressed, and sample the New Season oil on hot bruschetta. Truly a chance to enjoy the fruits of your labour!
In the afternoons, enjoy a hike with Dollie & Wow, take an excursion to one of Umbria's hidden gems, or just hang at the ranch and take in the tranquility. Lend a hand in the kitchen, make some fresh pasta, learn a secret or two of Tiramisu'... or just curl up with a good book.
This is the only week this year that we're offering scheduled activities and hosting with the full Monestevole Team...don't miss out!
If you have any questions not answered here, please email Adrienne
Filippo, Adrienne, Laura & Team
As many of you know, we mostly offer apartment rentals here these days...and while we love that too, we are excited to come together as a Team and offer you an 'original' Monestevole good time!
Laura will be our Cook for the week. Filippo will guide you into the olive groves and answer all your questions about sustainable living. Adrienne will be here to handle logistics and refill your glass, while Marco, Carlo, Gerry and Valerio will be on hand for all the authentic Umbria you could wish for!
Your Home from Home
Who Else is Coming...?
Friendship is part of the journey
We're fortunate to welcome guests from all over the Globe, across a wide age range. Many folks come to Monestevole at a transitional point in their lives, and many just come to breathe some delicious mountain air and slow their pace. Whatever your motivation, we promise you an unforgettable week, and we're sure you'll make friendships that will last long beyond your stay here.
Hiking, horses, happiness...
If you're still feeling energetic after a morning of farm activities, onsite yoga and horse back riding are available at Monestevole. Take Dollie & Wow on a hike...an easy stroll to the pond, a proper uphill to summit of Monte Acuto, or something in between. Or ease aching muscles with a relaxing massage...
**Please note - these activities are at extra charge.
Umbria, the Green Heart of Italy
Monestevole is perfectly placed to explore glorious Umbria. Perugia, Assisi, and Gubbio are all within easy reach. If you have a rental car, you can team up with other guests, or ask Adrienne to book you a driver. More about nearby places of interest here.
