The Eden & Vine Experience

October 18 – 27, 2022 | Tuscany, Italy | Hosted by Suzie Stroup of Beautiful Adventures


Join us in Italy this fall for a once in a lifetime experience like no other. Powerful teaching, life-giving conversations, renewed purpose, kingdom connections… and that’s all just before lunch. We’ll spend our mornings and evenings feasting together on a stunning private agriturismo estate surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. During the day we’ll explore the region’s art-filled churches and galleries, savor local food markets, and wander the medieval cobblestone alleys of ancient hilltop towns. 

Imagine the breathtaking landscapes of Tuscany during harvest season shared with your mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, or best friend.  While we do have a minimal number of single rooms for our single women travelers available, we have intentionally designed this extraordinary Tuscan getaway for a small group and exclusively for women who would love to share Tuscany with a best friend. Add to it encountering God in sweeping autumn landscapes that will mark your life forever, and it’s impossible to leave anything less than inspired and changed.
