Right from our initial contact with them they were so kind, courteous and responsive. There were 4 of us cooking and two friends came to enjoy the meal we prepared. The class was held in their home which... More

Wow! What an unbelievable experience we had at Organic Tuscany. Traveled to Italy to celebrate a girlfriends 40th birthday. Turned into a trip that was cherished by all of us. The staff, the cooking, the location perfect!! An experience that would be difficult to find on your own. My advice; bring good shoes to cook in. The stone floor is... More

We couldn't have enjoyed our time more!! It was the most intimate setting in a mid evil tower! What a dream location to host a cooking class in Tuscany. It was so fun hearing everything in Italian and then translated to English! Great team for doing an authentic cooking class. We made 6 courses of amazing Tuscan cuisine. Better than... More

Organic Tuscany is 'Villa Colle' in rural Certaldo. Our week long classes & trips were excellent. The setting looks over a vineyard toward San Gimignano where the sun sets in September, when we attended classes. My daughter gave the classes to me as a birthday gift. It was amazing to be with people who came to learn and enjoy Tuscan... More

I have just returned from the cookery school after an exceptionally enjoyable week. Everything is 11/10. The hospitality from the Organic Tuscany team, the accommodation, the food, the classes and the clever itinerary are nothing less than excellent.

We spent a week at Organic Tuscany Cooking Class over 2 years ago and just completed our 2nd visit. We wanted to visit in the fall when the grapes were being harvested and the olive trees were full. It was amazingly beautiful. We enjoyed the experience even more the 2nd time. The setting is beautiful and the people are warm... More
