A unique travel opportunity with hosts Andrea and Steve Rudolph
We are committed, through the combined philosophies of Jazz and Zen to sustaining and promoting the improvisational art of jazz and to living as fully and joyfully in the moment as possible.
Travel to the heart of Italy, to Borgo San Fedele, a 12th century monastery nestled in the green and rolling hills of Tuscany, where all of your needs are met…where time falls away…an inspirational journey for the body, mind, and soul…a place to unwind and experience a sense of total well being.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
-Mark Twain [Samuel Clemens] Humorist, Essayist
Enjoy delicious food, organic wines, jazz under the stars, excursions to local wineries, organic farms, private frescoed chapels, a cooking class and party, quiet morning walks, day trips to Siena, San Gimignano and quaint hilltop villages, picnics in olive groves, and more.
San Fedele is…
“A place where you can unplug from the busy world and reconnect with yourself, in the tranquility of the enchanted Chianti countryside but close to all of Tuscany’s major art cities, treasures and attractions. Every event is tailor made around our guest’s requirements and wishes.” - Nicolò & Renata, Owners
Borgo San Fedele lies in the district of Radda in Chianti, 7 km from the traditional village which, together with the districts of Castellina and Gaiole, formed in the Middle-ages, the ancient “Lega del Chianti”. Siena is 12 km away, one of the most magical art cities in Italy. One hour’s drive away is the Val d’Orcia, Pienza and Montalcino, famous for renowned pecorino cheese and the superb Brunello wine. Florence and San Gimignano are both 45 minutes away.
Jazz and Zen: An Integrated Approach…
The essence of Zen is awareness; awareness of thoughts, words and actions; how we respond to the present moment; all that arises and falls away as we move through our lives. This is the essence of Jazz as well; the ability to listen and respond, moment to moment, in the interplay and exchange of notes and chords.
When we engage all of our senses to live fully, embracing our lives as an infinite connection with everything and everyone, we create the music of life and take part in a flowing, seamless dance with conscious awareness of how every step, every movement is intimately related.
This is the spirit of JazZenJourney®
