We had a wonderful vacation at Tasty Tuscany in late March/early April 2014. The combination is perfect: (1) relaxed and friendly hospitality, based in a hilltop villa, (2) daytime excursions to places most people do not get to see, supported by Paolo's comprehensive descriptions covering history, culture, and economics, and (3) Pat's great cooking, using local produce and ingredients in...

This was one of the highlights of a month long vacation throughout Europe. The hosts were fantastic from Paolo picking us up at the airport, champagne on arrival, Patricia's magnificent meals, the visit to the market to pick up the food for dinner, the amazing conversation and laughing every meal. Lots of herbs growing in the lovely gardens. Fantastic view.... More

In October of 2013, my position at my company was eliminated. I had not taken a vacation for over a year as I was working on project after project. Now that I had the time, I had a choice. Decide to jump back in the work force, or take a much needed vacation to get a new perspective and clarity... More

My family and I recently made a trip to Italy. We ventured to several cities across several regions, and the trip was quite memorable! However, we collectively agreed that the time we spent in Tuscany with Paulo and Pat was our most favorite! Situated at the top of one of Tuscany’s seemingly endless hills, the small villa has beautiful views... More

If obscurity and mediocrity is what you seek then Pat and Paolo can deliver plenty of that! The former couple, who are now frigid business partners, make the experience down right distasteful with neither showing much care for each other or for their guests. We had a poor overall experiece. Wish we had chosen a better cooking excurion in the... More

What you won't get: Ritzy accommodation with bathrobes and slippers. What you will get: A warm and friendly welcome; impeccably clean and comfortable accommodation in a renovated 18th century farmhouse; a small group of fellow cooks; visits to a variety of hill towns -- all one hour away from Palaia; side trips if Paolo thinks a group might be especially...

A memorable trip both Pat and Paolo were very welcoming,they made us feel at home. Paolo took us sightseeing in the mornings and we cooked delicious vegetarian food in the evenings, the rewarding part was eating the food we had prepared. I had taken my husband and both boys who are at Univeristy on this trip and it was a... More
