“All, Hail, Casa Ombuto!”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011

Our "cooking vacation" at Casa Ombuto with Chef Paola was, as others have expressed, one of the most uniquely memorable trips my husband and I have ever enjoyed.

Having never experienced this kind of vacation before, I was a little nervous and even a bit skeptical that it could be as good as the reviewers before me enthusiastically affirmed. But, it was all that and more. A perfectly balanced itinerary of cooking, socializing, eating, exploring and relaxing came together at this gorgeous and impeccably maintained villa in the hills of charming Poppi. The staff was extraordinarily accommodating and our Chef Paola engaged all ten of us in cooking instruction that was as entertaining as it was enlightening. I have never written a travel review before but I feel compelled to join the chorus of voices that sing the praises of this fantastic destination. If you are considering it, do it. You won't be disappointed.
