Are There Any Gluten Free Resorts Anywhere In The World?
0

9 posts in this topic

I'm interested in finding a resort that is completely gluten free. I heard about one on the radio but when I did a search on Google I could not find anything.

Does anyone know of any gluten free resorts anywhere in the world?

Or have any idea of a travel agent or other place that might be able to help me find one?

Thanks!

These people do guided trips : www.bobandruths.com

This is a B&B that is gluten-free : http://www.chickenparadise.com/

Ther are a couple of B&Bs in Vermont, too. Google gluten free bed and breakfasts.

I would be surprised, albeit pleasantly, if there was a completely gluten-free resort. With celiacs making up less than 1% of the population, a completely gluten-free resort would not seem like a viable business model. It would most likely suffer the fate of all the celiac singles sites. It would never attract the critical mass of users to be effective / cost-effective. There just aren't enough of us.

There could also be an issue when a couple or family were traveling together and not all were celiacs. If the resort accomodated gluten-eaters, then by definition they would not be completely gluten-free. There would then be a possible problem with cross-contamination.

Nice thought though.

If a resort where totally gluten free, they could still accommodate the gluten eaters without any problems with cc....the gluten eaters can eat gluten-free for the vacation. What is the big deal with that? We eat NO differently than anyone else...we just don't eat gluten but many, many foods, including pastries and desserts can easily be made gluten free. If people aren't willing to do that for their loved ones, then clearly someone is in the wrong relationship.

We were incredibly well taken care of at the Westion Ocean Villas on Maui. The Chef there, Francois, completely had things dialed--and I know it because he keeps the collander for the gluten-free pasta in his office! That is a great sign!

I, too, am looking for a great gluten-free resort, so keep us posted!

http://www.villaggionirvana.it/servizi/ristorante/ Never been there, but by googling "resort celiachia glutine" a bunch came up. This place calls itself "a resort for celiacs" but I can't vouch personally because I never visited.

I think in Italy it is also a bit easier to be gluten-free because of the style of cooking, and you are less likely to find gluten-containing ingredients in dishes that are not obviously gluteny.

Well, it isn't a resort but it is a B&B that accommodates food allergies and intolerances - and it's in the AZ Wine Country.

Yes, AZ has wine!!

We have stayed there (pre gluten-free) and the owner is wonderful and very conscientious and accommodating.
