Amazing Vacation. Incredible and Memorable cook Experience!!

5 of 5 stars, Reviewed on TripAdvisor by Laura, September 2016

Stayed with a friend at Torre del Tartufo for the 3 day cooking vacation with Tuscookany in October. Only complaint was that we did not book and stay longer. From the absolute moment we arrived, our expectations were exceeded. The genuine, warm greeting from property hosts, Lena and Alex, to the beauty of the property, and to our anticipated authentic cooking classes with Chef Franco Palandro and his amazing wife and assistant, Paola, the incredible three days have left the most memorable imprint and anticipation of returning.

Franco not only is incredibly experienced and has a great teaching style, but is skilled in quickly getting acquainted with the group and different personal styles all with precision pace and genuine humour, not to mention patience at every moment throughout. Paola is a delight, has a keen ability to answer multiple questions at once always with quick wit and a smile on her face. Franco and Paola ensure that everyone learns the fundamentals and many facets of true Italian cooking and favorites. They are truly passionate about their craft and want to ensure every participant gets everything and more out of the classes and experience.

There is no detail not thought of and considered for the guests and upon arrival, guests are encouraged to feel at home. This is an understatement!

This experience and vacation truly was a find and memory of a I will definitely be repeating.

Room Tip: Every room is charming and unique with character. No room could disappoint.
