(Our Sibillini tour...a floral paradise)

We concentrate our energies within Italy because we live there and also run a few tours, on request, in the Greek-speaking world. These are based on a deep knowledge and appreciation of the flora and fauna throughout the Mediterranean and Alpine regions of abundance of wild orchids, alpine plants, butterflies moths and other insects in scenically breathtaking places.

Enquiries & us

Accommodation for Workshops

First decide on the dates you would like to visit and how long…

If you arrive by train then we would recommend using a B&B or hotel in Orvieto. There are also self-catering options available.

If you have a car and wish to explore before or after then we can recommend a superb B&B ourside Orvieto with incredible views back over this most photogenic of Italian cities. There are also any number of beautiful agriturismos in the countryside within easy reach of Orvieto with or without pools.

Obviously you can look on-line, select and book however, this is something we can easily do for you. We can provide you with a short-list of accommodation (with prices) we would choose for ourselves and you choose.
