New at Tuscookany cooking classes in Italy at Bellorcia!
February 6, 2013
Tuscookany started giving cooking classes in Italy in Casa Ombuto well over 12 years ago and after great success added Torre del Tartufo 8 years ago. As interest grew, we realised last year that it was time to find a new villa to add to the Tuscookany group. We spent over nine months of intensive research to find the right villa with at least the same level of luxury and atmosphere as Casa Ombuto and Torre del Tartufo and YES we have FINALLY found a spectacular villa which will leave you speechless! We are happy to announce that we will be giving the one week cooking classes in Italy with Laura Giusti from 2013 onwards at:
Bellorcia is a grand Tuscan villa, renovated with impeccable taste. This luxurious villa, with its very colourful contemporary style, has a 360-degree spectacular view of the surrounding typical Tuscan landscape with rolling hills, wheat fields and cypress trees. It is situated in the breath-taking Orcia valley, which was classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2004 and is everything you have ever imagined Tuscany to be and an ideal location for your next cooking classes in Italy. Looking out each window in the villa is like looking at a framed painting.
Bellorcia is positioned 1 hour from Siena, 1½ hours from Florence and 2 hours from Pisa and Rome. The closest train station is Chiusi, which is 25 minutes by cab.
Laura Giusti, who has over 6 years of experience working with Tuscookany will be the Italian chef for Bellorcia and her extensive knowledge and passion will inspire you. For more details regarding Laura and her fabulous menu please visit the Tuscookany website.
Another new course we will be offering from this year is the:
Three day Italian cookery course at Casa Ombuto
We discovered that the three day cooking classes in Italy which we offer at Torre del Tartufo has become so popular for those guests who have limited vacation time or too many other places to see that we have decided to also offer three day cooking classes in Italy at Casa Ombuto from 2013 onwards. Laura Giusti will be giving this three day Italian cookery class at Casa Ombuto for limited weeks. Have a look at availability on the website.
We invite you to visit the Tuscookany website to read more about Bellorcia and our new courses.

My husband and I absolutely loved our time here for the 1-week Italian cooking course - and that says a lot since I hate to cook.
The ultimate Tuscan experience, A week of cooking at Casa Ombuto is everything you could hope to expect, and more. Under the expert guidance of world class chef Paola Baccetti
I just spent an awesome week with Tuscookany at Bellorcia.
Incredible Experience, This Property is straight out of a Sofia Coppola Indie Movie! It's Luxurious, Beautiful and Decadent!
What a fantastic holiday, everything was just perfect,
Greatest cooking class experience ever! ... we had such a wonderful time with Laura the Chef!
Fantastic experience This was our second time at Torre del Tartufo and we had exactly the same quality experience as the first time. It was wonderful to stay at the Torre del Tartufo again and enjoy its beautiful setting and atmosphere. Cooking classes were excellent, a great fun, truly enjoyable. We learned a lot and enjoyed every single meal (pizza night was great). We had fun as a group. Franco and Paola are the best!
