“Stunning from start to finish - idyllic holiday in the Tuscan sun!”


5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012


Driving high into the Tuscan Hills, we finally reach our destination and were not disappointed - it looked even more spectacular than the photos suggested. We immediately met two of our fellow guests from South Africa who we became firm buddies with from the onset. A warm and welcoming Chef Paola appeared confirming we had found the right place! The holiday progressed with a fabulous Welcome Dinner Al Fresco where we got to know the other participants. The company, food and wine could not be faulted. The cookery course was professional, informative (hard work at times) but most of all lots of fun and we were all very impressed with what we managed to produce under the careful tuition of Chef Paola. Nothing was too much trouble for her to explain again or fix if it went wrong! She managed to impart her wisdom and knowledge of Italian cuisine with passion, patience and a cracking sense of humour! Accommodation in our Tuscan idyll was a rustic farmhouse with just the right amount of luxury touches - a beautiful, secluded swimming pool being just one of them, stunning countryside with fabulous treks or walks for those who could move after eating all they had prepared! The beautiful town of Poppi nearby for those who felt inclined to venture slightly further afield. A once in a lifetime, completely unforgettable holiday, we met some wonderful people and we have been inspired to continue with our love of cooking back in the UK. If you love Italy, food and Italian cooking, you'd be hard pressed to find a better place for a holiday of this kind - highly recommend it!
