Cooking tuition in the Tuscan hills, in this place at least, couldn't be a better way to spend time. This place is fabulous. A beautiful well kept villa in gorgeous grounds in a stunning setting with a manager, chef and assistant whose welcome and company made the place feel like home from home. On arrival for example, a packed fridge and bar were pointed out, and we were told to help ourselves all week. I've let immediate post-holiday euphoria pass, and still this holiday was one of the best, if not the best ever. I can't really cook, but found myself french cutting lamb, stuffing tomatoes, making pasta and bread, the list goes on. Four days of the seven the group (the group of 8 was made up of six travelling as twosomes, and two single travellers) met at 3pm to cook dinner, under close instruction, fuelled by house wine and chat chat chat - didn't get an early night the whole week! I definately recommend this, if a bit reluctantly as I want to ensure they have places when I book again!
Stayed October 2009, traveled as a couple
