When I was looking for a holiday destination I thought 'I like Cooking' and 'I like travelling' so when I saw Tuscookany's range of courses I thought 'this should be fun'. But I was wrong it wasn't just fun, it was in fact the best holiday I have ever had! I travelled from the other side of the world to... More

My expectations were very high for Casa Ombuto and they were definitively exceeded. Our family's week there was so much fun and will be one of the most memorable family vacations we have ever taken. As everyone notes, Paola is a magician in the kitchen and her personality is exactly what you're looking for in an Italian cooking instructor. Her... More

Along with my family, I just returned from Casa Ombuto and it was the best vacation ever! It was hard to believe that every prior review gave it 5 stars, so we were a bit skeptical. But to our delight, it exceeded 5 stars. We had the villa to ourselves and it was magnificent. Our cooking instructor, Paola and her... More

I'm not sure why it has taken me this long to write about Casa Ombuto. I think I somehow knew it would be impossible to put the magically experience into words and do it justice. Casa Ombuto is a truly special place, and the aura it has is nothing short of phenominal. But I've now resolved that it will be... More

My family and I spent a week at Casa Ombuto with chef Laura doing the mediterranean cooking class. Our entire group had a fabulous time! There are so many positive things to say about this experience that it is hard to know where to start. As it is a cooking school let's start with the food. The food was amazing!... More

We've met lots of nice people in this trip! Our chef Paola and Host Sheenah are very friendly and accommodating. We've also met some new friends in our cooking class, we cooked together and encouraged each other. This is a real holiday for me and I will go back for sure! Thumbs up!!!

Spend 3 days at Casa Ombuto , July 5-July 8, 2015. It went so quickly . Everything was tops esp Chef Laura. I am still reminiscing about it with a BIG smile on my face. My daughter enjoyed the cooking so much that she would have preferred cooking all the 3 days rather than spending the last day touring around.... More

As a college student I went to Casa Ombuto knowing only how to cook instant noodles. After attending this cooking school not only did I learn how to cook amazing Italian dishes, but I was also exposed to a new passion. Paola is an amazing and very patient teacher. She really gives the residents of Casa Ombuto a unique taste... More

What a fantastic way to celebrate my 50th birthday! The week long cooking classes with Paola and the field trip were a great way to immerse ones self in Tuscan food, recipes and culture. My friend and I had stumbled across this cooking school high in the hills of Tuscany 2 years ago when we were getting ready to plan... More
