My wife and I spent a week at Casa Ombuto in September 2014. It was the very best holiday/experience we have ever had, and it exceeded all of our expectations. The accommodation was perfect, the staff were amazing, and the cooking lessons were outstanding. We learned an incredible amount about preparing Italian food. which we have tried (mostly successfully) to... More

What a great property Casa Ombuto has. The accommodatiions are fantastic and the staff is wonderful. I have wanted to take cooking classes in Europe all my life and this was the trip of a lifetime. Tuscookany knows how to do it right. Chef Laura was a delight and her helpers so talented. The Mediterranean classes were just what we... More

I had the wonderful opportunity to stay at Casa Ombuto the week of November 1, 2014. I have researched cooking schools in Tuscany for almost 2 years and finally decided on Tuscookany and Casa Ombuto after much research. In all respects, it was beyond my expectations. The location is amazing....truly medicine for the soul.... The villa gorgeous, warm, welcoming, classy,... More

It's hard to find the right words to describe the fantastic week we spent at Casa Ombuto. The villa - fantastic. Sheena and the entire staff - fantastic. The friends we made - fantastic. Paola Bacetti - one of a kind. Her passion for food, her wit, her personality and her ability to instruct at everyone's skill level in the... More

My wife and I spent a fantastic week at Casa Ombuto from the 13-20 of September 2014. There is a reason everyone gives it five stars, I would have found it hard to find anything wrong with the facilities or the staff not to mention the star Chef Paola. Right from the start we were treated to amazing dishes during... More

We just returned from a week at Casa Ombuto... it was a fabulous week. The accommodations were great. We went with another couple and shared a 2 bedroom suite which was absolutely perfect. We lit a fire in the evening and discussed all the recipes we had completed. Paola was such a dedicated and passionate chef. She was funny and... More

I've been searching for one word to describe my week October 4 - 11, 2014 at Casa Ombuto and came up with one: Love. Chef Paola, host Alex and the entire kitchen/housekeeping crew love what they do and it shows. From the moment you meet them they love you and you love them right back! Paola loves food, cooking and... More

I was lucky enough to be invited to Casa Ombuto by a friend and I will owe her forever! What a wonderful place! We left with memories of new friends, beautiful scenery, but best of all, a cooking experience that we couldn't have gotten anywhere else. Paola is a wonderful chef and teacher - we enjoyed every minute of the... More

This was always meant to be one of those "Bucket List" things. How was I to know it would be one of the greatest times of my life? From start to finish it was a unique and wonderful experience. When I arrived I was unaware of the reputation of our chef - Laura. That would soon change!! Her beautiful smile... More
