Prices one week Italian cookery courses
We regard our Italian cookery courses as all-inclusive cooking holidays, including accommodation, cooking lessons, meals, beverages and a full day culinary excursion. Your only extras are your lunch and dinner on the one free day. We would like you to feel totally at home and not have to keep tabs of what you drink or eat or when you go on-line. Non-participating guests are welcome on the excursion and can use all the facilities at the villa and join all the meals, just not the actual cooking lessons.

For compassionate reasons due to the Corona Virus we have adapted our terms and conditions as follows:
In the event that you are unable to join your course due to the airlines cancelling flights to Tuscany or there is formal negative advice to travel to Tuscany from the authorities of your country or because you feel uncomfortable, we will do our very best to help you move your dates to another period when the restriction has been cleared. You can change to later this year or next year if you prefer.
In order for us to cancel your booking please have a look at the availability on the website and select a new date for this year or next. When you let us know which dates you have chosen we will cancel your existing booking and send you a revised booking form to confirm the change.
We would like to make it clear that, according to our terms and conditions, we are not legally bound to move your booking without penalty but would do so for compassionate reasons and ask for your flexibility and understanding if we are unable to accommodate your preferences.
Participants need to sign a legal waiver freeing Tuscookany and its staff from any legal liability on arrival. This form must be signed upon arrival - if you would like to review this upfront please let us know.
