Item Description

Enjoy a trip for two to Italy!  This trip will treat the lucky winner and a guest to a week-long stay at the luxury bed and breakfast Casa San Gabriel in the Umbria region of Italy, as well as a truffle hunt, wine tasting, and olive oil tasting at Vineria del Carmine.  

The Casa San Gabriel is a set of converted farm houses that overlooks the rolling hills of the Umbria region.  Your stay at the Casa San Gabriel will be in the Stalla house.  The Stalla house, once an old stable, is perfect for a couple or 2 friends sharing. There is a large terrace surrounding the cottage which contains a kitchenette, a bedroom area, a separate dining area, and a lovely bathroom with deluxe high pressure shower. The Stalla house comes with a fully-equipped kitchenette supplied with breakfast for your first morning, a complimentary bottle of wine and basic necessities including olive oil, salt and pepper, etc.  Wireless internet is also provided.  


Along with the stay at the Casa San Gabriel, the lucky winner and a guest will go on a truffle hunt and enjoy superiore wine and olive oil tasting at Vineria del Carmine. You will be guided through the woodlands and paths above Chiesa del Carmine with the local truffle hunter and his truffle-hunting dog.  After the hunt, you will return to Vineria del Carmine to taste the red, white, and rose wines produced on the estate.
