“Casa Ombuto exceeded our expectations!”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I attended the one week Italian cooking classes at Casa Ombuto. The villa is beautiful and very comfortable. The staff is helpful, cheerful and always willing to provide whatever is needed. But most of all, our chef Paola is a fantastic chef and also a very good teacher! We had such a fun learning about Tuscany foods and culture and preparing numerous dishes under the direction of Paola - she is so passionate and has a great sense of humor! We cooked much more than we realized we would do so it was of great value. The one day group excursion escorted by our director, Sheenah was fantastic! I would suggest that you rent a car since the villa is a bit remote- we had several half days and a full day to sightsee. Overall, Paola was such an inspiration to us to strive to cook and eat the Tuscan way. We plan to return in a few years!
