My culinary vacation at Bellorcia fulfilled all of my expectations and beyond. Our chef, Laura Giusti, is an exceptional chef. She is very passionate about cooking, and is an outstanding teacher. She is also passionate about life and is a very warm and inviting person!! You feel like you have known her for a long time. The quality of the food we prepared was superior, and the wine we had for dinner was always amazing. Alex and the rest of the staff were so welcoming and friendly, and accomodated all of our requests. The Villa Bellorcia is absolutely stunning. The setting is very serene with beautiful grounds and spectacular views of the rolling countryside which seems to go on forever with gorgeous sunsets later in the day. Truly picture-perfect!! The Villa Bellorcia is very close to other small towns in the Tuscany region - such as Pienza, Siena, Montepulciano, and Montelcino for some quick site seeing in the morning along with good shopping of quality local goods. The bedrooms at Bellorcia are truly amazing - spacious, comfortable and modern but still keeping a traditional Tuscan feel. Each bathroom has an overhead rain shower and the bath towels are the size of blankets!! There is a fireplace in the living room, which makes the Villa feel cozy and relaxing. The outdoor infinity pool is gorgeous. I had a truly memorable vacation and culinary experience and would return again. My cooking classmates were great, and we plan to stay in touch. I highly recommend Tuscookany to anyone!
