“Gluten-Free Heaven!!!!”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

I booked this vacation for my 40th birthday to do something epic and it provided in spades. I signed up for the one week Mediterranean Course with Laura as the instructor. I was a bit nervous going to the land famous for pasta and bread being a Celiac, but Laura worked with me every step of the way to accommodate my diet and give me a taste of each dish in some form. I learned to make GF gnocchi, ravioli, Italian bread, veal, and much more. It was delicious!

The grounds were beautiful. Having Wi-Fi all around meant I could FaceTime my family back home for free. The was a guest computer available so we could keep up with our blog and keep our extended family and friend up to date on our fun (making them totally jealous).

It was a nice mix of cooking, relaxing, touring, and fellowship. All the guests became like family. They all got a crash course in cross contamination, but were very good about it and sensitive to my situation.

Conclusion: Celiacs- You're in GOOD HANDS with Laura and the Mediterranean Course at Casa Ombuto. You won't regret your decision to come to Italy and make this your first stop!

Room Tip: I don't think there's a bad room in the place. It's phenomenal.
