Gourmet Food and Wine Short Breaks

Submitted by on June 30, 2010 – 5:49 pm2 Comments

One of the problems with taking a culinary vacation is lack of a place to cook! Sure, you’ve got the use of a kitchen during classes — but where can you experiment with new techniques and dishes back in your hotel room? A new series of offerings called Gourmet Food and Wine Short Breaks sounds like a trend this Road Trips Foodie hopes will expand. The trailblazer is Abercrombie & Kent Villas, which has arranged foodie-centric rentals in some of the most intriguing culinary regions in Europe. Choose from Andalucia, where fish and seafood prevail, Tuscany, with its hearty cuisine and full bodied wines, classic Bordeaux with its fine wine chateaux, the Cote d’Azur where the ‘King of the Truffe’ resides, or Provence, home to the famous Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

Each “short break” includes four nights at a villa — with many foodie extras. For example: in Italy, the Brunello Wine Trail and Tuscan Cheese Short Break is based at Il Glicine, a five bedroomed villa near the village of Ponte d’Arbia, Tuscany. The focus? two of the region’s specialties: the Brunello wine of Montalcino and cheeses of the Val d’Orcia. It includes wine tastings, cheese tastings and a farmhouse lunch. In Spain, highlight of the “short break” at Villa Maroma in Andalucia is a six-course meal prepared in your villa and spotlighting modern Spanish food trends. You’ll find the details on all the offerings online.
