This one week cooking vacation was filled with beauty, wonderful people, delicious food and drink, and much learning. Franco (our teaching chef) is amazing. He taught us how to be better cooks and did so with enthusiasm and good humor. The support staff was helpful and friendly. The villa is lovely. During free time we could swim, walk, use the... More

This was the best cooking vacation of my life. Franco, Paola and Lena made us feel at home and made us all feel like an extended family. I have taken many cooking courses and Franco was the best cooking teacher that I have ever had. He not only told us what to do, but WHY we were doing it. Franco... More

You cannot imagine just how magical Torre del Tartufo is. If you love people, cooking, the most wonderful fresh ingredients, wine, grappa and slowing down the pace of life a little, then look no further. The villa itself is extremely comfortable, beautifully decorated and furnished tastefully maintaining tuscan features. The team who look after us each day are exceptional and... More

An excellent week at a location hard to beat. Loved the atmosphere with a combination of four hours fun cookary and relaxing time at the pool or in the tub. The group became a team within one day due to Franco's creative abilities in dealing with people. Thanks to the 'team members', Lena and Paola. Bella Italia. Amo questo posto:-)

If I could rate my stay at Torre del Tartufo higher than a 5 I would. It was everything I had hoped for and more. The staff is incredible. Starting with Lena who took care of me when my flight was delayed and stayed in communication with me to make sure I got the villa safe and sound. Chef Franco... More

There truly are no words descriptive enough to describe our week at the Villa! We anticipated an amazing trip and got so much more-we got the trip of a life time! The Villa is absolutely breathtaking with views that can't be beat. The staff is indescribable, Elena is warm, thorough and gracious and makes sure that you want for nothing!... More

My wife and I just spent the past week at Torre del Tartufo. She's a good cook, I'm not. We had the most marvelous time. The venue is spectacular, the company was great and the cooking was a lot of fun (even for a non-cook like myself). I would recommend it in a heartbeat.

The hill up to the villa is the beginning of an amazing journey! Once at the top of the world, you know you arrived in foodie heaven! The villa is so beautiful! The pictures are nice, but being there in the Tuscan sun breathing in the floral smells- the grounds and view are so much more! It was a full... More

Franco is a superb chef and a wonderful teacher. He is kind and gentle while also setting a high bar for our learning. He quickly learns about who we are and matches recipes to our abilities and interests. We all felt comfortable and supported in our learning. And the food was beyond fabulous (one of his favorite words). Franco guided... More
