Amazing Mediterranean cooking week at Casa Ombuto in Tuscany

5 of 5 stars, Reviewed on TripAdvisor by level 3 contributer Mh111, December 2016

I spent a week doing the Mediterranean course at Casa Ombuto. Laura our chef was just amazing- always enthusiastic smiling and patient. The food was fab and so many good wines to try too. The villa is beautiful and spotlessly clean. The rooms were extremely comfortable. There is a lovely pool but it was a bit cold for us in November but there is also a hot tub, sauna and gym facilities. The excursion with wine tasting and olive oil tasting was wonderful too. Not touristy at all.
They recommend taking a car as it is fairly remote. If you don't want to drive, you can get a direct bus from Florence to Poppi (2hrs) although leaving Poppi on the Saturday the times in the morning are limited so don't book too early a flight home. The train changes at Arezzo and you have to book separate tickets for both trains. However, it was easy to do and you can get tickets on the day. The staff are really helpful if you need advice.
Overall it was superb and I can't recommend it highly enough -but I would advise stretchy trousers as I've never eaten so much in my life!
