Explore the real Italy, the magical, mystical countryside of Tuscany and Umbria.
Imagine you had a good friend, a native Italian, who knew all of the best places to see, eat, drink great wine, and could introduce you to some of the locals. We have that friend, and we’re sharing him with you! Salvatore Gangale, is the Castello delle Serre owner and a native to Italy. Salvatore brings with him over forty years of experience, that assures you that you will relish in the most authentic meals and local experiences during this stay as he takes you through Italy as only a local can, effectively capturing the essence of la dolce vita.
He’ll lead our V. Sattui guests through charming villages, farmhouses, majestic castles and the beautiful architecture of churches and monasteries. You’ll taste some of the world’s finest olive oils, wines, learn how the Italians cook, truffle hunt the Tuscan countryside, and eat meals you’ll remember for a lifetime.

“Incredible! Our only regret was that we didn’t stay longer! …We toured some of the most incredible Tuscan towns just a short drive away from the castle to explore and do some wine tasting.” – Heather A
“Spent 4 wonderful days in the castle. Mirco, Antonio, and Salvatore were very gracious and helpful hosts of our stay. Our Tuscan trip would not have been the same without their help, guidance, and wonderful hospitality. Do not miss this experience. We will be back!” – Vedya B
“Just returned from Italy and wanted to tell you how very pleased we were with the tour of TUSCANY and UMBRIA . Our host and guide, Salvatore Gangale, was outstanding! His knowledge of the country including its history, art, architecture, and food made him one of the most outstanding guides we have ever encountered. In addition, he is a great story teller…Having visited Italy many times we are pleased to say that this was a fabulous tour for WINE and FOOD lovers.” – Dan & June F
“Everything and everyone was absolutely first class. From our initial pick up on Saturday morning to our farewell the following Sunday we enjoyed every minute…I have overheard my husband, who isn’t impressed easily and is often bored after a few days of vacation, rave to everyone he has talked to about this trip being THE BEST.” – Debi & Kosta K
