SMALL GROUP culinary tours OF THE MEDIEVAL UMBRIA
4 days cooking package holidays in Umbria during the medieval festival "the Mercato delle Gaite" from 22th to 27th june 2011

Welcome to Umbria! Bevagna is a small town in Umbria. It's a charming and picturesque walled town, that was an important place in ancient Roman days, situated along the Via Flaminia.
It's also home to a festival called Mercato Delle Gaite. For a few days each spring, the town is time-warped back to the middle ages. If you visit during this time, you'll find quite a different place than normal! The townspeople are all dressed in medieval garb, and the locals are very much into the spirit of the event. As you wander through the streets, you'll find all sorts of unusual activities underway, from falconry, to blacksmithing, to paper making. The town is historically divided into four quarters, "Le Gaite". These neighborhoods compete against each other in different events as part of the festival, and there's a real rivalry between them.

Reservations are on request for a minimum of two people.

Raffaella Bucefalo (View My Profile)
Hello,
I am Raffaella, the owner of country farm "la volpe e l'uva" and the organizer of the programs of "Let's Cook in Umbriaā€¯.
I have been living here since 1996, with my husband who is a musician, and our two children.

The idea of this project was born in 2005 thanks to the lucky meeting with Stefania that like me, loves the region of Umbria, its products and traditions.

She shared my project: to offer a beautiful holiday in Umbria during which people can live in a nice and comfortable apartment surrounded by Umbrian hills, discover the secrets of our traditional cooking and enjoy of the artistic richness of our wonderful region!
She joined my wish to offer guests an unforgettable holiday that combines Italian food, art, and our local culture.

Our programs include cooking classes, half-day tours and meals. You will deal with the professionalism of people in an informal and friendly environment.

The programs on my pages are very flexible and people interested can ask me for changes, i.e. the length of the vacation, the number of cooking lessons and the number and type of excursions.

We can plan together your personal holiday! My presence in the farm is a guarantee for the success of your holiday!
The first years of work in this project have been full of satisfactions, as you can see from the testimonials page!

Hoping to see you soon here in Umbria.
I send you all my best.

Raffaella
