There were 3 of us travelling together (my sister, brother and myself). My... More

Taking a cooking class at Ulrike's farm simply rounded off our first visit to the Chianti region very nicely. It was exactly what I was looking for: a glimpse of provincial life though a local, and learning about Tuscan food prepared with local ingredients. My friend and I signed up for the 5-hr cooking class, which began with a trip... More

When my husband and I look back on our latest trip to Tuscany, our cooking class with Ulrike is one of the highlights of that trip. If you want to have a fun, enjoyable, interesting and entertaining experience in Tuscany, then join Ulrike in her fabulous kitchen and let her guide you in preparing an authentic Tuscan meal. Local foods... More

My husband and I took a cooking class from Elrike on our honeymoon. She was great and experience was one I will not forget. It was great to cook with others staying on the property (we were not) and meet different people interested in cooking. Looking back, I would have preferred some say in what we cooked as I really...

We spent the day with Ulrike learning to cook traditional Tuscan food, what a spectacular feast! It was fabulous to share her kitchen and use so much produce from her beautiful farm. Ulrike is very fun and engaging and managed our group of eight very easily. The day was the perfect for children, there were three in our group, and... More

Poderi Val Verde was an amazing experience. We had a cooking class with the home owner, followed by an Archery class with the owner's son. Out of the 8 days we spent in Italy, this was by far our favorite experience. From the property, to the people, to the food, everything was amazing....and delicious of course! I would recommend the... More

We have been in podere Val verde for a week, my family had a great time. For every age we found some attraction to do: a great pool, great basketball field, great cooking class. UlRike and her lovely son Fabian, the owners are so nice and welcoming. We will defiantly come back.
