We just left this “paradise on earth” and find it hard to put the experience into words... One couple of our group (3 couples) had been here 7 years ago and had such a great time, they wanted to come back and “drafted” us to...More

Thank you so much for this review! It makes us proud. We look forward to welcoming you back to Tuscany and hopefully in less than 7 years!
This was on my bucket list for a long time. Thinking how wonderful it would be. It was more than I dreamed it would be. Everyone there made us feel like this was our home for the week. Lena was so AMAZING. Chef Franco and...More
The villa is beautiful and well kept. Our room had a sitting area, fireplace, bedroom and bathroom. Furnished in the rustic and country style of Tuscany. It felt like a movie set! Yet modern conveniences were available in renovated rooms: great bathroom, shower, tub and...More

Thank you for your interest in our Tuscookany courses. Most participants are amateur cook lovers who enjoy cooking together and enjoying what they have made in good company with great wine. The level of expertise is not that important we have had different levels from no experience to chefs, its more about the total experience of cooking together and having fun doing it. We do have singles attending all the courses in the year. Its generally a mix of couples, singles, and friends traveling together. Age is between 25 and 65 generally. Those guests who choose the three day course are more pressurised for time and cannot spare a week, we cover the key basics (pasta and pizza) and you prepare two four course dinners. For the full week its more elaborate as its four lessons instead of two. Both Casa Ombuto and Torre del Tartufo offer three day courses and the locations are equally great. We look forward to welcoming you in Tuscany!
