This is our 2nd visit and Ulrike and her son Fabian are still wonderful hosts in this unique gem of a villa in the Tuscan countryside. This historic villa survived WWII intact and is beautifully maintained - offerings include cooking lessons, archery lessons, a refreshing pool, and a breathtaking view to simply relax and enjoy. Plenty for young and old... More

From the moment you pull down the long driveway into Ulrike's beautiful property, you realize that this won't be like any other vacation. From the very beginning, Ulrike makes you feel at home and like a part of the family. We stayed in the Casa Pineta which manages an atmosphere that is cozy, authentic, and simultaneously very well-equipped with what... More

Taking a cooking class at Ulrike's farm simply rounded off our first visit to the Chianti region very nicely. It was exactly what I was looking for: a glimpse of provincial life though a local, and learning about Tuscan food prepared with local ingredients. My friend and I signed up for the 5-hr cooking class, which began with a trip... More

When my husband and I look back on our latest trip to Tuscany, our cooking class with Ulrike is one of the highlights of that trip. If you want to have a fun, enjoyable, interesting and entertaining experience in Tuscany, then join Ulrike in her fabulous kitchen and let her guide you in preparing an authentic Tuscan meal.
