About this trip

What makes our trip the best?


Visit a quaint town with just 600 inhabitants and get a taste of Turkish village life.


By staying the night at Pammulake (The Cotton Castle), we can visit at sunset and avoid the massive crowds of day-trippers.


Stay in a charming B&B with cozy cottages and antique furnishings perched on top of a hill overlooking olive groves and vineyards, think Tuscany but Turkish style!


Travel on your own private yacht along the Bosphorus and explore lesser-known intimate estates along the riverfront.


Swim underneath the famous Roman Temple’s ruins in Queen Cleopatra’s antique warm pools that are steeped with history. We visit a few hours before closing in order to avoid crowds and more than likely will have the place to ourselves!


Stay in a unique cave hotel carved into a side of a cliff with some rooms of the hotel dating back to the 5th century.


No trip would be complete to Turkey without drifting above Cappadocia in a hot air balloon and witnessing the serene performance of the whirling dervishes.

The villa and grounds were lovely, our staycation host, Sandy, was very fun and accommodating and took care of our every need. We were also blessed with a fabulous group of people staying at the villa, which made this staycation extra special.

We had the best time on our Italy vacation! Sandy was amazing, attending to all the details and making sure we all had the best options for our trip. The villa is lovely, the town was so fun to discover for food, shoping, views, relaxing and good times. We couldn't have asked for a better group of people to tour with, great friendships were made on this trip!

This is my first "group" trip with individuals I didn't know prior to landing in Italy. I could not have asked for a better experience. The trip was fantastic in every way. The group that were on this trip was awesome. We had so much fun!! The area was so picturesque and exceeded my expectations. The Villa was very comfortable and spacious. Sandy, our GD tour person was exceptional. She took care of each and every one of us and made sure we were all having the best time. I will treasure the memories of this adventure and will stay in touch with the "new" friends I've made.

Cannot speak highly enough about this trip! Globe Drifters is a wonderful company to work with. Very timely and informative correspondence received throughout the process. The location was spectacular. The Villa in Citta della Pieve was wonderful. Very comfortable. Cute. Beautiful area. The little town was charming and had wonderful food. The agenda was wonderful. Make sure you go to the sheep farm!! The group was a variety of individuals who clicked, and we had so much fun. By the end of the tour, it felt like family. Our tour leader Sandy was so wonderful! Sandy was attentive, responsive, caring, funny, sweet and so much fun! Plus she has a great playlist for dancing! Amazing trip!

I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. The villa is beautiful and the landscape absolutely stunning. The host Sandy was an absolute gem. She made sure that everyone was taken care of, was very inclusive so no one felt left out, and was fun to be around. She had to do a lot of adjusting and switching excursions around when the drivers and/or guides made last minute changes or cancellations. We had an amazing group of women on the trip (and one man) and everyone was pleasant and enjoyable to be around. I hope they are lasting friendships! There are a couple of items to be aware of. Because of all the wonderful excursions offered, carefully decide which ones you wish to go on. The cost varies depending upon the number of participants and people may drop out last minute. While most of the time, once committed, they will collect the transportation fee so as not to adversely affect those going, you might want to have a bit extra just in case you end up having to pay more as happened to a few of us for one excursion. The villa is a 25 euro taxi ride to and from the train station so it's a bit costly if you want to explore other towns on your own via the train.
