A memorable week singing in the chapel and grounds of our very own private estate in glorious Umbria. The 10th century village of Titignano has been lovingly restored and we will enjoy excursions to both Orvieto and Todi.

Bordering Tuscany we find ourselves in Umbria, one of the was most beautiful places in Italy, renowned for its lush rolling hills, terracotta villages and rows of emerald vineyards.

As we get better acquainted with the much-underrated sister of Tuscany we find treasures that exceed all our expectations. Not only has it got landscapes to rival any in Italy, we find some of the most picturesque cathedrals and ancient churches nestled terracotta villages and perched on hilltops in all their glory.

It is these majestic buildings that make Umbria so special to us, as it is in these spiritual spaces, we find some of the best acoustics in the world and create harmonies which with resonate with us long after we leave.

  • Visit the Titignano chapel,  Orvieto and Castello di Vibio
