This was my third experience with Tuscookany cooking vacations. It was my first stay at Bellorcia. Each location has its own character and charm. All three are wonderful accommodations. Bellorcia and the area surrounding it are just spectacular! The online photos do not do it justice. The Villa is magnificent, with large comfortable rooms. The living room area on the first floor was a great place to congregate in front of a gigantic fireplace.The views from every window were just beautiful.
Laura Giusti as our chef and teacher is a special person. We returned to Tuscookany in part to spend a second week with her! She patiently managed to get a group of diverse students cooking. Our meals were delicious. The cookbook that comes with the class contains recipes that will be used at home.
The Val d'Orcia region where the Villa is located is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The countryside is very natural with fields of wheat, wild flowers, etc. The Villa is within close driving distance of several small towns which made it convenient to tour them on our mornings off.
Room Tip: All rooms have spectacular views!
