A taste of authentic Italian Culture
We are reuniting with our friends turned family, Rita and Massimo, at their gorgeous countryside get-away for an all-inclusive* 7-day retreat at Il Tesoro in the heart of Acquapendente, Italy. Il Tesoro is a family-owned and run, farm-to-table villa and has been awarded the Italian classification of agritourisms, assigned 5 sunflowers, placing Il Tesoro in the highest category achievable.
What can I expect from this retreat?
Il Tesoro is a family-run farm-to-table destination at the crossroads of Tuscany, Lazio, and Umbria. For more than 20 years now, husband and wife Massimo and Rita have been welcoming guests to this hidden treasure in the heart of the Italian countryside. You’ll experience first-hand authentic Italian culture and traditions during your stay – from sit-down dining experiences to offsite excursions including private tours by locals, you’ll live and breathe Italy from your arrival to your departure.
Farm to table ingredients lay the foundation of every delicious dish prepared and served at Il Tesoro. Dominico, Il Tesoro’s chef, crafts each plate with exquisite care and detail – offering you an explosion of seasonal flavors and colors in every bite.
From the moment you arrive at Il Tesoro, you are family. Rita, Massimo, and the rest of the Il Tesoro Team welcome you with open arms and do everything to ensure your stay with them is comfortable, warm, and unforgettable. The friendships you create during your stay will be ones that last a lifetime.
Welcome to a hidden treasure
A private countryside paradise – Il Tesoro began when Massimo and Rita set out to restore two traditional villas on the family’s farm, originally built in 1932. They carefully carved out 10 apartments, creating comfortable and inviting accommodations for guests while preserving the traditional ambiance of these countryside villas. They have since gone on to add a new villa, pool, spa area, lounge bar, and farm-to-table restaurant. Il Tesoro prides itself on being a farm-to-table destination, where guests will always find high-quality service and attention to detail not only during their stay but at every meal with ingredients direct from their own biological farm.
