There truly are no words descriptive enough to describe our week at the Villa! We anticipated an amazing trip and got so much more-we got the trip of a life time! The Villa is absolutely breathtaking with views that can't be beat. The staff is indescribable, Elena is warm, thorough and gracious and makes sure that you want for nothing! Franco is a master chef with a gift for teaching! He effortlessly juggles meeting the needs of all of his students while "Franco" is called out continuously. He and his partner Paola anticipated our every need/mistake and guaranteed our success while allowing us to learn and have FUN! The unique menus we created while listening to his endless playlists of amazing songs created a cooking environment we all couldn't wait to get to each day! As if this wasn't enough, Elena, Franco and Paola worked to help my boyfriend plan a surprise engagement while we were there (the first in the Villa's 12 years)! Their excitement for us and their desire to help create a very magical moment for us was incredible and greatly appreciated! Our day of excursions that they had planned for us was fabulous and exposed us to places in Tuscany we would not have seen on our own. Our trip was also made so very special by the group of amazing people from all over the world who we had the privilege of spending our week with...lifelong friends were made on this incredible journey! We can not recommend Torre del Tartufo enough, you will not be disappointed, you will walk away with a once in a life time experience!
