How our guests experienced the Tuscookany courses
Reviews from our former guests made about their visit to Tuscookany on TripAdvisor, facebook, Twitter, Google, Chow and Yelp.
You have to go! I can honestly say, this is one of the best vacations I have had. There were fourteen "cooks" from all over the world and we all got along famously! Franco and Paola were a joy to work with and Alex and Lena were such wonderful hosts. The weather was perfect and the food, yum! You will not regret spending a week at this beautiful villa with these amazing folks.
There is nothing to fault about this experience. If you want to learn the experience of cooking for your family/friends and stay in a magnificent villa and be looked after totally, then this is the best you can attain.
When I booked my solo cooking school getaway (aka birthday present to myself) at Tuscookany Torre Del Tartufo I totally did not expect the experience I had.
My week spent at Torre Del Tartufo was in one word - INCREDIBLE.
What a culinary adventure we had at Casa Ombuto. We can honestly say that ALL our expectations were exceeded and some!!!. . This has also been on my bucketlist since 2009, so it was a dream come true for me when we did finally drive into Casa Ombuto. Chef Alice...what can we say that wasn't already said? You are an absolute delight!!!
I booked a week-long cooking trip to Torre del Tartufo as a solo trip and was thrilled with my experience.
