The Eden & Vine Experience

April 20th – 29th, 2023  | Tuscany, Italy | Hosted by Suzie Stroup of Beautiful Adventures


Join us in Italy this spring for a once in a lifetime experience like no other. Powerful teaching, life-giving conversations, renewed purpose, kingdom connections, all while immersed in the sweeping lush countryside of Tuscany. We’ll spend our mornings and evenings feasting together on a stunning private agriturismo estate surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, as well as exploring the region’s art-filled churches and galleries, savoring local food markets, and wandering the medieval cobblestone alleys of ancient hilltop towns. 

Imagine the breathtaking landscapes of Tuscany in the spring shared with your mother, daughter, 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 of women who would love to share Tuscany with a dear friend. Add to it encountering God in ways that will truly mark your life forever, and it’s impossible to leave anything less than inspired and changed.
