I was infected with the travel bug at birth and have lived in the US, Mexico and Italy. 

I've had a little house in Umbria since 1984 so Italy is my second home. In 1986 I decided to turn my avocation of helping friends and family with their travel plans into my full time career. 

When you are having fun it's not really work at all. 

Nothing is better or more rewarding than working with a client to make their travel dreams and fantasies a reality. Whether it's a cooking class in a private home on the Amalfi Coast, picking grapes in a Tuscan vineyard, creating ceramics in an ancient majolica workshop, a quiet visit to the Sistine Chapel before opening hours or sunrise at the Taj Mahal... 

Together we customize and craft the travel experiences of a lifetime.

Puglia, Italy
My sixth trip to this mysterious region combining many cultures into a glorious melting pot of sun, sea, food, wine and architecture, from trullis to baroque. We dined in the sophisticated city of Bari, cooked with local chefs after harvesting the bounty of their gardens. Such fun!

Southern Spain
Gorgeous and glamorous, rich in the heritage of fine wine, food and architecture - that is Andalucia. We combined a Hacienda stay with the incredible Moorish sites of the Mesquita in Cordoba, the dancing horses of Jerez, and the incomparable Alhambra in Granada.

Marrakech, Morocco
Exotic and sophisticated with a fascinating medina and more elegant and charming hotels than you can imagine - Marrakech offers a variety of experiences for the adventurous traveler. Live in the lap of luxury while traveling back in time. It's a terrific combination and closer than you think.

The highlights of a trip to India are many: the sumptuous palaces and unique architecture; the scenic beauty of the natural landscape; the myriad of flowers and the colorful dress of the women; the exotic handicrafts; the warm and friendly people. After 16 visits I can't wait to go back.

Sicily, Italy
A melange of cultures from down through the ages Sicily is a study in contrasts: strange and beautiful, peaceful and chaotic, frustrating and charming. Warm and friendly people, with food combining the simple and the sophisticated. The archaeological sites are second to none, the landscape is spectacular.

Yucatan, Mexico
Right in our own backyard: unrivaled archaeological sites, colonial architecture, a culinary tradition as ancient as its people. Combine these attractions with a beautiful coast and some of the most elegant and charming hotels imaginable, all presided over by the gentle Mayan people - a recipe for success!
