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

My wife and our good friends booked a three day cooking class in April, 2015. We were impressed by both the facility and the staff. We were delighted to meet the other members taking the class. This was an experience worth repeating.

We stayed for a week in April and had the most wonderful time. When we arrived Lena explained there was only going to be a total of four people in our group. I was very disappointed as reading the reviews realised it was more than a cooking school it was about making new friendships and having fun. Lena tried to... More

I spent a week at Torre Del Tartufo in July and it was simply perfect. I was a bit apprehensive as I was alone but I settled in really quickly. I was lucky enough to have a large suite overlooking the hills all to myself and the accommodation is beautiful. Lena and Alex looked after me and the six other... More

I stayed at Torre del Tartufo in July with my sister. We weren't really sure what to expect as we had never done anything like that before. When we arrived we were indeed surprised in the fact that it is more beautiful than the pictures show. The cooking with Franco and Paolo was great fun, we learnt lots and had... More

Torre del Tartufo is a beautiful villa surrounded by the beautiful nature of Tuscany. It is easy to get to by taxi from the train station in Arezzo. Most of the drivers know where it is, but bring your map just in case. The cooking lessons are great -- Chef Franco and his assistant Paula are wonderful, they gave us... More
