We love the tradition of giving thanks for life, for beauty, for sustenance, and for friends and family—and we have a very special week planned for you in Tuscany’s most beautiful area,the Val d’Orcia.
Come and create once-in-a-lifetime memories for yourself and your loved ones.
The Isabella Experience includes everything you’ll want: a week full of authentic experiences, beautiful lodgings, superb concierge service, and special events to celebrate the bounty of Thanksgiving and its traditions.
Late fall is a beautiful time to be in Tuscany—particularly for food! It is the time of special seasonal delicacies such as white truffles, chestnuts, and new olive oil. Days are comfortable, evenings are cool and crisp—perfect for enjoying the pleasures of the season such as thermal hot spring soaks in nature, colorful foliage, and a wood fire outside in the fire pit surrounded by friends.
We hope you will come and stay with us for your family’s Thanksgiving holiday.
We will be happy to welcome you at our new property La Moscadella, a former monastery beautifully transformed into a large villa with luxurious accommodations, spacious indoors, and a Tuscan restaurant.
For those looking for a luxurious home to call their own, a comfortable place full of peace and beauty there is our villa called Casa Moricciani, an historic building, beautifully designed and furnished with the highest quality of furniture and antiques
Please note, items highlighted in green are part of our Thanksgiving Package.
