To say the anticipation going into this vacation was high is an understatement. How can it not be reading all the amazing reviews? But to say it exceeded every single expectation is also an understatement. The week I spent at Torre del Tartufo was unbelievable for me and my two other friends, and all of our new friends we met...

We were lucky enough to get into Torre Del Tartufo for a 3 day cooking course at the last minute after finding ourselves with an extra week in Tuscany and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to spend our time. What a treat it was. The accommodation was extremely tasteful and comfortable - we basically had an apartment... More

To truly appreciate the absolute beauty of not only the villa of Torre Del Tartufo but also the people who work there, you really must visit. I recently did the 3 day cooking school and within minutes of arriving realized it wasn't long enough, and that I would need to go back. Words cannot do the people or place justice.... More

Stayed with a friend at Torre del Tartufo for the 3 day cooking vacation with Tuscookany in October. Only complaint was that we did not book and stay longer. From the absolute moment we arrived, our expectations were exceeded. The genuine, warm greeting from property hosts, Lena and Alex, to the beauty of the property, and to our anticipated authentic...

How can you beat seven days in a secluded, rustic palazzo, perched among vineyards on forested hilltop, eating gourmet meals while scanning a dazzling vista of the Tuscan countryside spreading out below? My wife and I shared shared cooking classes and delightful conversation over leisurely meals with an assortment of sophisticated travelers, singles and couples, representing four continents, in an...

Words cannot describe what a perfect holiday Tuscookany at Torre Del Tartufo is. Book the holiday, part with the money and you wont regret it. I promise.

Our 3 day cooking course at Tuscookany was a remarkable experience. Just arriving at Torre del Tartuffo you know that you are in for a unique experience. The grounds and accomodations are magical. Even though we are "city people," we felt like we would be happy to never leave. Add to that the hospitality and warmth of Lena and the... More
