The whole experience was enjoyable from arriving and going on a wine tour, to 4 days cooking, then hiring a car and touring the area including Assisi, Gubbio and lake Trasimeno. Raffaella gave us lifts, organised the car hire and much more. She was as lovely a host as you could wish for and Stefania, our cookery teacher was great... More

Touring the old towns of Tuscany and Umbria is fun, but our winter itinerary needed some variation and "Let's cook Umbria" provided the perfect diversion for our mixed-age group. We stayed 3 nights in the warm and cosy apartments. We had two cooking classes with Stefanie, who weaves professional chef knowledge into pragmatic homestyle lessons, carefully pointing out the essential... More

I had the best time imaginable. I learned and laughed and ate all with homemade wine. Doesn't get better than that.

We spent two days in a lovely apartment with a countryside view. The apartment was fully equipped, including foods for breakfast, as well as, a bottle of olive oil and wine from Rafaella"s farrm. We thoroughly enjoyed our two days of classes which included a 4 course meal and wines each day. We have since made several of the recipes,... More

We stayed at the farm which was Probably our mistake. Have not showered in 3 days no hot water. Dirty bed smelly towels. The cooking class was lovely though although they cooked with oregano from a jar I don't how old. Stay in Assisi instead of the farm.

The guests spent two days in my farmhouse and every morning they had a cooking class in my home, therefore we met every day but they never talked me about the lack of hot water. I've known about this problem reading the reviews that was published the day after their departure. I checked the apartment and I discovered they had... More

Rafaella was able to accommodate me even though there was only one other mother and her 8 year old daughter available on the day. Stefania and Raffaella made us very welcome and taught us how to make delcious panna cotta, pizza dough, tagliatelle with two different tasty sauces and fantastic chicken & Proscuitto roulades. Then our husbands joined us to... More

My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rafaella's farm and the cooking classes that she and our instructor Stefania facilitated. Our suite had a gorgeous view of the valley below the farm and was well equipped with a kitchenette and complimentary olive oil and wine (made at the farm) – the wine was so good we bought 2...

I had never known Umbria before - and found I had missed some magic! The cooking classes lead by Stefania and Raffaella were great. Being in the country at a farm location meant everything was fresh, fresh, fresh. And we had a marvelous experience discovering the hidden magic of Perugia and Assisi. Overall, it was the best experience yet.

We had a wonderful time with our chef, Stefania. We learnt how to make tagliatelle which was very interesting indeed. The special Italian bread is a must and will definitely be a regular at home!
