“Wonderful holiday with enjoyable cooking class!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

My husband and I stayed 2 nights in late May which both of us enjoyed a lot, the food, the relaxing atmosphere, the hospitality of Edith and all others.

The weather was a bit cooler than expected, yet surprising my husband still managed to swim in the pool! So refreshing!

Thanks to Edith and Margherita offered us an enjoyable cooking class. We made our own pasta and Tiramisu for our dinner with the Fattoria Tregole own red wine. Perfetto!

With Edith's recipe, we are now ready to make our own dish with the olive oil that we bought from here. ^_^ Thanks!

Upon arriving at Fattoria Tregole we finally got to meet Edith, who I had been corresponding with on a somewhat regular basis regarding our stay. Edith is the quintessential hostess of travel. She makes her home, your home. She takes the time to get to know her guests, and she makes her guests take the time to understand the dynamics of the region. She explains the area, shows you the maps, tells you how long the trips are and what to expect. This is all information that made our stay even more enjoyable.

We loved starting our day with breakfast on the patio (a full assortment of fruit, yogurt, eggs, cereals, breads and cakes) listening to the sounds of cuckoos, roosters and donkeys. We would always spend some time by the beautiful pool overlooking the vista. Every nook and cranny of the grounds forms a perfect rustic setting fit for a photo op. Fattoria Tregole is well situated in the region for half day exursions into small towns like Castellina and Radda, or a full day trip to Florence, Montalcino or Montepulciano.

Our villa at Fattoria Tregole was more welcoming and roomier and prettier than the photos. And, it was the most comfortable and immaculate place we have ever stayed, anywhere, through all of our travels.

The staff at Fattoria Tregole is personable and excellent. Everyone is friendly, courteous and pays attention to detail. Whether it was at breakfast, or taking cooking class (don’t miss this opportunity!) with Edith and Marguerite – who shop to make sure the dinners are as fresh as possible, or just having conversations, the B and B experience here is at its finest. Personalities and genuine interest in people transcended any language barrier and made us feel at home.

Out of everything we did, and everything we saw, my memories of Chianti and the Fattoria Tregole will tug at my heart and remain my fondest of Italy!

Relaxing and peaceful to the utmost. Quiet and serene are the keywords here. Rustic charm, and spacious, well kept grounds and rooms ( ask for room 1) are what your host Edith provides for your delightful stay overlooking a charming valley where you can hear donkeys braying and cuckoo birds calling in the disdance.
The rooms, from the bedrooms to public rooms have a simple rustic charm to them that immediately welcome and relax you. The breakfasts are wholesome and ample. The dinners when you are fortunate to have them have nothing but the freshest ingredients and are freshly made in their kitchen by individuals from their cooking class whose task besides learning under a chef is to provide the evenings meal.
The host Edith is warm and gracious, and will assist her guests with the planning of the days touring and make suggestions that will most probably change your plans for the day. Her philosophy is refreshing.

Room Tip: All rooms are worthy.

The Chianti is something to explore day per day with the feeling to be free to decide how your day will start.Thats why I love individual travelers. Sightseeing, nature, hilltowns, history or just relax that you can do in Chianti Classico. Thank you for listening my suggestions and I really appreciate your wonderful review.
see you soon

Beyond my wildest dreams of the perfect Tuscan experience...Edith shares her 15th century manor house, tasteful, comfortable, up to the minute conveniences..the rain made it even more romantic, especially after she lit the fire in the guests' private parlor...Edith, the graciouse hostess befitting of a noble manor house, pays attention to every detail to ensure comfort ( the best shower in Italy) guidance (touring ideas, restaurants, local interests) fabulouse food ( she teaches cooking classes) And WINE!! Try the vintage super Tuscan, sooo delicious.
Do yourself a favor and book a wine tour, or Sienna tour with Dario Castagno, (Too much Tuscan Sun, Confessions of a Tuscan Tour Guide) author, who grew up in the same dirt surrounding Fattoria Tregole...his story telling and historical knowledge engulfs you with punctuated drama that sends you back in time...mabe another lifetime ago??? In fact, great reading before a trip to Tuscany....

So happy that our house , wine tour and cuisine satisfied your stay in our wonderful region. Our efforts are dedicated first to make our guests happy second to maintain the house with the original charm and third continue to do a personal service to all our guests. It was really a pleasure have you here. All the best until the next glass of Chianti Classico together in Tregole and if you can come a bit longer.

We were in Chianti for a few days and couldn't have found a more perfect place. Setting on the terrace eating Edith's gorgeous home made food made with her own olive oil, accompanied by her Chianti Classico and followed by her own limoncello was bliss. The house is simply but beautifully decorated and Edith and her staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The wine tour was a highlight with the highly entertaining Dario! We will be back with family and friends so they can share the experience.

Fattoria Tregole is a home in Chianti to relax and enjoy the peace of the nature around. I saw you slow down, have a look around and enjoy the atmosphere of our manor house. I have the feeling that you got the Quintessence of Chianti .You were wonderful guests !

Fattoria Tregole was our family's favorite stay on our 2 week tour through Italy. We were the only visitors during our 3 night visit at the end of March so we were quite spoiled by wonderful Edith! We, along with our 3 adult sons and a girlfriend joined Edith and Margerita for a wonderfully entertaining and informative cooking lesson, an essential experience. It was certainly a compliment to Edith that shortly after returning from our trip, one of our sons sent a photo of a gnocchi making session with his roommates at college!
Our room had a seating area and roomy bedroom and our sons rooms were upstairs.
Lovely breakfast and eating area. Nearby seating area was comfortable for all of us to hang out together.
We also arranged for Edith to cook dinner for us. She was very accommodating and asked about food preferences. Her meals were delicious and so was the wine.
Tasting the wines at Fattoria Tregole is brought to an entirely different level if you arrange to have Dario give you a personal tour and tasting. A history of the 1000 year old location is included.Do not miss out on this experience! If you have a chance to also meet Dario in Sienna for an insider tour, do it. Amazing. He has had books about this area on the NYT best seller list! We were all enthralled....
It's easy to understand why Fattoria Tregole has so many repeat visitors. It's a very special and personal stay in a spectacular location overlooking the hills of Tuscany and within easy drive distance from many hilltowns.

Hello, as I also have two children I really love it to see such a warm and close family and such a Chianti Italy fans. It was so much fun making the cooking class with you and it makes me really proud that the gnocchi arrived in the college and you exercise Tuscan cooking at home. Thanks for your review and all the best until your next visit. In the main time we will try new recipes for you!

Edith our teacher was fantastic and showed us how to make the most delicious egg pasta with a ragu sauce and the best chocolate torte I have ever eaten.

We can't wait to make these back in Aus!

It was a great experience and we will be back. We will also stay overnight next time, the rooms look amazing and the scenery was picturesque!

Thanks Edith for sharing your skills and recipes with us! We loved the class and enjoyed eating what we had made for lunch with your delicious wine!!!!
