We had the most amazing time at Torre del Tartufo last month, with friends old and new, staff that felt like family and accommodation so comfortable we felt immediately at home. The apartment was comfortably and tastefully furnished; the pool and hot tub were incredible and the views spectacular! We won't even mention the surfeit of food (much of which... More

Love - Torre del Tartufo, Tuscany, and Tuscookany! We did the week long Italian cooking course with two old friends and a lot of new ones. The villa is... More

I attended the cooking school the week of the 5th June 2015. It was a wonderful time. I learned so much about cooking from chef Franco Palandra and so much fun making all the delicious dishes. The entire team were so welcome and accommodating. It really was like being at home, except in the beautiful setting of Tuscany. I only... More

The facilities, program, food, wine, and the entire experience all could not be better! The little touches and attention to detail were amazing. Even as a participant not... More

What a fantastic week! From the moment we arrived at Torre del Tartufo the managers, Lena and Alex, made us feel like we were special and that they were there just for us. Chef Franco, with his quick wit and sense of humor added a special touch to his cooking classes and his assistant, Paola, is better than the Energizer... More

The staff was exceptional from beginning to end. Lena and Alex met every need and of course the star was Franco, our wonderful chef. The menus were just amazing... More

I just got back from a 2.5 week trip in Italy and my 7 day stay at Torre del Tartufo was the highlight of my trip, not to mention one of the best weeks I've ever had! I came with my best friend and it surpassed our expectations from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The staff... More
