In terms of travel by air, your best bet is to fly into Florence as this is the closest airport (1,5 Hours). If you can get good deals to either Pisa (2 hours) or for that matter Rome (2 hours), this is also a possibility.
We recommend car hire. You are more flexible if you have a car as if you are not present at your Tuscany cooking School you have plenty of free time to explore the area. We can help you with suggestions as there are many places with great historical value and beauty in the vicinity. The villa is about a 15 minute drive from the closest city, so quite remote. Your best bet is to rent a car at the airport. Most reputable car hire companies are represented and the prices are similar. You can book your car on-line so it’s ready when you land. We recommend to book with www.autoeurope.com with this link you get 5% discount.
Alternative transportation is to take the train. You need to take a train to Chiusi, from where you can travel to the villa by cab. For the timetable have a look at www.trenitalia.com.
If you choose this option, you might feel stranded once you are at the villa. But if you prefer just to relax and enjoy the pool and other facilities of the villa, take a hike or book a massage then this would suit you. If you need us to arrange a cab to Chiusi during the week, (for example morning trips or your free day) we can arrange this easily.
We can arrange transfers to and from Florence airport on request.
