Introducing a little dash of Umlingo – Under the Tuscan Sun…

United Kingdom, 2020-Nov-24 — /Travel PR News/  – Umlingo Travel PR is delighted to introduce its very first member of its new Umlingo Collection!

BelSentiero is a beautiful Tuscan farm house boasting panoramic views over the rolling hills and valleys of the Val d’Orcia – countryside so exquisite that it has not only inspired many a Renaissance artist – but has also been declared a World Heritage Site.

It is owned by South African born Jan Geenen and his partner Renzo, who love nothing better than sharing their little slice of heaven, “La Dolce Vita” with their guests.  With just 4 rooms, Belsentiero offers an intimate base from which to explore Tuscany’s countless charming hilltop towns, cafes and restaurants, wineries, and thermal spas, or just relax on the veranda  – or in the hot tub – sipping an Aperol Spritz or glass of Prosecco!

The idea behind the new #UmlingoCollection is that all the properties will be small, hand-picked (mostly) South African owned and/or run properties – based not only within Africa – but around the world! What sets them apart is a little dash of “Umlingo” or magic – and that shared spirit of “Ubuntu” or community.

Traveller’s might be a little nervous post Covid-19 to travel to destinations where they perhaps don’t speak the local “lingo” – so knowing your hosts speak fluent English might encourage people to explore a little further off the beaten track – with those all-important insider tips from a local on where to find the most authentic, best value for money experiences on the ground.

Be sure to mention “Umlingo” if and when booking your stay for some lovely value-adds/surprises!


Belsentiero is offering a special #BlackFriday deal on gift vouchers for Christmas!  You can buy a €110 voucher for just €100 – and use it any time until the end of 2022 – with flexible terms.
