I do not even know where to begin. The week I spent at Bellorcia with all these amazing and lovely people was a truly magical one that I will forever look back upon with such happiness and love. The location is right from a Tuscan post card. You wake up every morning almost needing someone to pinch you to ensure you are not dreaming all the beauty surrounding you. The online pics of this location most definitely do not do it justice. The villa is so beautiful and charming that we didn't even bother leaving it some mornings to explore other areas. Then there is the Chef Laura…an absolute doll that you fall in love with the moment you meet her! Very refreshing to meet such an accomplished chef with such a loving and fun side that made each and every moment with her an absolute joy. A special shout out to Alex, the property manager, for arranging the days so beautifully and ensuring we all enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. To say that it exceeded any and every expectation I could have had would be an understatement. From the location to the people to the cooking to the laughs to the memories, nothing comes even close. I have been an avid globe trotter for the past few years and I can say without a doubt, this was the best trip I have taken to date. A week at Bellorcia is an absolute MUST for anyone wanting to have a Tuscan culinary dream come true.

Wow!!! It was the vacation of a lifetime!!! I can’t begin to compliment our chef and cooking instructor Laura enough! She was expert in her cooking skills , patient, and fun! This was a family and friends cooking trip and we were blown away by the quality of our school and accommodations! We all felt very pampered and spoiled during our stay at Bellorcia! Alex was also helpful in managing any technical needs we had (GPS directions) and going above and beyond in our special dinner one night! This place is A+++ The pictures of the Villa you have on your site do NOT do it justice. Each room is beautifully decorated and appointed! I would absolutely recommend this beautiful place and cooking school to anyone!!! I sincerely hope to come back again someday!!!❤️

I went alone to Bellorcia last week. This was my 2nd vacation with Tuscookany cooking immersion / vacation.There were 8 of us although classes can hold 12 guests. The fun never ended and the cooking was intense. The beauty of the land and the villas are heaven The staff is top notch. Especially Laura Guisti our chef, teacher and friend. The manager Alax was very helpful too. We dined like kings and drank wine like a Godfather. Spectacular trip! The excursion day was fantastic too.

Had an amazing week at Tuscookany Bellorcia with the amazing chef Laura. Had a great time learning some of Laura’s secrets to great Italian cooking. Made many of the recipes at home: minestrone, ravioli, tagliatelle, lemoncello, ricotta cake...... all awesome!

Words cannot describe how wonderful our week was at Bellorcia! From the moment Claudia greeted us at the stunning Villa to the last meal with our new friends, it was perfect. The Villa was gorgeous - each room has it's own personality and all have amazing views. Claudia was there for all of our questions and needs. Antonella, Carmella, Tania and Mina worked tirelessly to make sure we enjoyed ourselves. Chef Laura was an absolute joy! She is a great teacher - we learned so much during our cooking classes about traditional Tuscan cuisine. The group started out as strangers but quickly became good friends - we shared food, wine and lots of laughs. There is no doubt that we will book another week through Tuscookany after this incredible experience :)
