“Wonderful time in a great location”

5 of 5 stars, Reviewed on TripAdvisor by Budsy, August 2015

My wife and I attended the one week cooking class at Torre Del Tartufo in June, 2015 - she as a participant and I as a non-participant. The entire experience from the time we arrived until the time we left was incredible and well organized. Our room was very spacious and laid out in the classic Tuscan style - with every amenity required.

The property itself is stunningly beautiful, located high up in the hills above Arezzo - close enough to see the city lights at night but far enough away to feel as though you're in your own world.

Chef Franco was an amazing instructor for the cooking classes. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the experience and is already applying some of what she learned here at home. The rest of the staff was terrific as well - attentive to all our needs.

We had one day dedicated to an organized field trip by bus - visiting a cheese shop, Tuscan winery and an olive oil plant/farm (where a tasty lunch was served.) Also included was one "free" day, allowing us to drive to Cortona and Montepulciano.

Our fellow guests were from all over the world, making for most interesting conversation. A fine group indeed. While there is plenty for non-participating guests to do during their stay, I would tend to say that "participating" would provide the best over-all experience.

A note about getting to the villa: our GPS (TomTom) wouldn't guide us right to the villa. What you need to do is program it to get you to Chiaveretto, and then follow the provided written instructions from there (easy to find with these.)
