Montefollonico Tours
The picnic basket
Our picnic basket is perfect for a day trip, a walk in our olive grove and vineyard or a peaceful lunch on our terrace. The ingredients are all fresh, local and of high quality: fresh bread made in La Chiusa every day, typical Tuscan cold cuts, cheeses and everything you need to create a gourmet sandwich! And yet olives, salads or fresh vegetables available and desserts made by our kitchen. Water and fruit juices are always available to complete your basket. It is possible to choose the wine from the wine list by paying for it separately.

      What a great experience!
      Wow! One of the greatest experiences of our trip in Tuscany. The staff was competent, friendly and the site was magnificent. We learned a lot while cooking and we had a lot of fun!

      A fabulous dining experience
      There were 11 of us for dinner including 3 children and one baby. The staff was incredibly accommodating and gave us a lovely table set apart from other diners. The outdoor setting was just lovely with spectacular views of the Tuscan hills. We all agreed that the food was excellent and the service impeccable. We were unhurried and treated like family- exactly what I had hoped to experience in Italy. I highly recommend for a fabulous dining experience.

      We had a truly wonderful time at La Chiusa. Everything was so well organized, staff super friendly and very can do helpful. Our highlight was the Truffle Hunt as Paolo and his charming Jack Russel Spugna, who has stole the show, we just so much joy to be around. The position of this boutique hotel is just stunning and the views are 360• Very tempting to jump into the pool, we loved the fact that it wasn’t covered even though the summer season was far over. It definitely added the magic to already spectacular scenery. Thanks to all and look forward to coming back again. Erika&John

      Don't pass this place by. It is wonderful
      There wasn't one thing that I did not like. It was a great trip. Linda, George and Whitney go well beyond what you would expect to make sure you have a wonderful time. The cooking school was fun, as well as the truffle hunting! The room was very comfortable and clean. If you have the chance to go there, GO!!!!! You will not be sorry, I went in May of 2018, could enter the correct date in.

      Cook in Tuscany
      My daughter and I did the 7 day Cook in Tuscany trip in June 2019. It was truly the trip of a lifetime! Cooking classes, wine tasting and some of the the best dining you can imagine. Not to mention the beautiful country and the hotel where we stayed, just world class. Plus our hosts Linda, George and Whitney were just awesome. Then add the joy of sharing this with my daughter! We made memories that will last a lifetime. We’re still in touch with the great friends we made from our group. Do it! You won’t regret it. 💕

      A magical week in Tuscany everyone should experience!
      My mother and I attended the La Chiusa week in Tuscany experience last year. We spent a week eating delicious meals, exploring the many small towns of Tuscany, and taking cooking classes from several different Italian cooks. It was truly one of the best experiences of my life and far exceeded all of my expectations! When you go, be prepared to have a magnificent time! Once they picked us up from the train station, we never had to worry about our transportation. They took us everywhere we needed to be and provided all supplies that we needed. Linda, George and Whitney provided an amazing atmosphere and were wonderful hosts. My mother and I were lucky enough to be part of an amazing group made up of people from all over the world. It was truly a magical trip and I would recommend the experience to anyone looking to explore Tuscany with a focus on learning some traditional Italian cooking!

    Looked forward to taking a picnic down to Millenium. Easy to order online- pickup was very timely. In fact they won’t take a phone order.
    Unfortunately I didn’t ck and there were no forks or napkins included. (Seriously?)
    The Refrigerator Chop was excellent.
    The Salmon Simplicity w broccoli was a disappointment. The broccoli was way overdone as was the salmon which was of the same texture as shoe leather. Real dry and tasteless.
    Off to a bad start for our first visit to Picnic. New chef? Short staffed?
