We had an incredible day cooking at this wonderful location in Tuscany. Set in the beautiful countryside outside Cortona. Simonette has a comfortable and welcoming home from which she holds cooking classes and has a B&B. We cooked a five course meal with Simonette and she was warm, amusing and informative about the food of Italy and the region. Beautiful... More

This farmhouse was everything we hoped for and more! We were greeted by Simonetta who was so warm, welcoming, informative and by the end of our 3 night stay felt like family. Her fury friends Dante and Trili were also around and captured my heart. Every day Simonetta took the time to ask us what our plans were and if... More

Having read the great reviews before our visit we had very high expectations at Casa Bellavista. Finding it after sundown was half the fun. GPS didn't work about a km before we arrived but Google maps did. Simonetta and Guido were 100% as everyone described. As ex professional hotel managers they of course were well experienced in looking after guests,... More

From the moment we pulled up to Casa Bellavista, Simonetta made sure we felt welcomed and at home. Everything was perfect - the scenery was amazing, the rooms were spacious and clean, the setting was very relaxing and Dante and Treely (the dogs) were sweet and loving. On our first day, we took a cooking lesson with Simonetta. The lesson... More

We had stayed here the previous summer and missed the cooking lessons. This time we came with my parents and took it. It is impressive how such inexpert hands (like mine) have been able to produce such a yummy dinner! Simonetta and Guido, our hosts, are always eager to help. Just like we remembered. Thank you again!
