This is a review of a week of cooking lessons + accommodations for the week + all meals + all wines, liquors, and liqueurs. The price for all of these amenities was very reasonable. The week's cooking lessons, the Torre del Tartufo location, and the Tuscookany staff are all

This was one of the most enjoyable vacations we have ever had. Torre del Tartufo is located at the top of a hill overlooking a beautiful valley. It is a truly idealic setting. Our class was only 7 so we all got really personal instruction from Franco, our chef and instructor.

It's been a couple months since I returned from this trip and my heart aches to return and cook, hike, rejuvenate and spend time with Alex, Lena, Franco and Paola. Franco is an amazing chef and teacher adjusting to the wide range of cooking experience in the class. He was

Dear Debra, We are so pleased to read that you had such a wonderful time. We have never been called a cooking retreat before and I love it! I know its hard work in the kitchen but we try to ensure that you can relax and be pampered for the rest of the time so it’s a great description. We look forward to welcoming you back to our Cooking retreat!

There are definitely classes at that time. If you go on the web site, Tuscookany. com , you will be able to see which weeks are booked out and which are still available.

April is early spring in Tuscany and while the days can be lovely the evenings can be cool. So bring layers to be safe. We have central underfloor heating and cozy fireplaces if the weather turns. We look forward to welcoming you to Tuscany!

Dear Angelina, 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!

"Every room is spectacular and there are different formats; some have multiple bedrooms for families and some have fireplaces."
"Book early so you can get the room that best fits your family."
"All the rooms are spectacular - I think the two best rooms are the one over the arch and Basil looking out over the pool / Tuscany!"
"Rooms are arranged in suites, so they will assign you based on your group size."
"Rooms overlooking the pool face the Arezzo valley, but the landscaping is so charming and picturesque that every room has a marvelous view!"
