5 of 5 stars, Reviewed on TripAdvisor by Ameier, October 2016
Whenever I want a taste of heaven I visit Casa Ombuto! Just a few weeks ago I attended this awesome cooking school/vacation for my 5th time!! I loved my first time and I just as much loved my 5th!! Chef Paola has become a loving friend for life and her kiss if culinary grace and talent is something that is like no other!! I have traveled to this special location on my own, and with my daughter, and with my husband and the most recent with dear friends, and each time the villa holds a memory that will stay with me for a lifetime!! Upon entering my enchanted room on this recent trip, I was delighted to receive a beautiful champaign with a lovely note welcoming me back for the 5th time!! My Tuscan view from my room filled my heart with so much joy and the staff bends over backward to provide each guest with amazing service!! Just imagine, sipping wine around the massive fire places while gazing upon the beautifully set tablescapes, a bounty of fresh vegetables from the garden in large Italian baskets adorn the cantina and making your own pizza from scratch and baking it under the stars! The staff makes the most delicious food for breakfast and lunch and the cooking class use the best of ingredients for all the recipes that are made by all of us budding Italian chefs!! ALL the meals will exceed your expectations, truly Amazing!! Casa Ombuto has become my home away from home and I plan to be back in two years again, or sooner if my youngest daughter would like to marry at this villa....I truly have left my heart at Casa Ombuto!! I gave the overall rating the top 5 rating but it really deserves a 10 plus!! ps..The day trip was also so special as we visited outstanding locations that will delight your memory and palate!!
