Review on
Torre del Tartufo

I struggle to put in words how perfect our experience was

December 23, 2023

With Tuscookany at Torre del Tartufo! I have traveled extensively my entire life but this was by far one of the best vacation experiences ever. The villa itself is supremely beautiful, set on top a hill with superb vistas of the Tuscan countryside. It has been lovingly restored to be wonderfully cozy and comfortable while retaining its historical ambience. The service throughout our stay was impeccable, with the staff always going above and beyond to ensure we had the best experience possible. And I can’t begin to say enough wonderful things about Chef Franco and his partner Paola. Between them they made every cooking lesson both educational and fun. We cooked things we never thought we’d be capable of, and with their watchful guidance absolutely everything turned out both beautiful and delicious. The small group of eleven “students” meshed wonderfully and lasting friendships were created. The cooking classes were just the right length with plenty of time in the mornings to explore the surrounding Tuscan towns. And the dinners at the villa enjoying what we had created under Chef Franco’s kind tutelage were the perfect end to each day. I cannot recommend this experience more highly!

Rooms: My friend and I shared an “apartment” in the villa. We each had our own beautiful bedroom and our own luxuriously equipped bathroom, while we shared a cozy sitting room. And the staff very carefully made up a wood fire in the sitting room fireplace ready for us to just set a match to for a cozy quiet evening.

Walkability: The villa is unfortunately not really handicapped friendly since it has many stairs and no ramps, but as long as you are relatively ambulatory like me, it’s manageable.

Hotel highlights Luxury, Great view, Romantic, Quiet
