What a fabulous time. Secluded in the forest high above the medieval Tuscan town of Poppi, Casa Ombuto is truly a unique experience. Excellent accommodations. Fabulous hospitality anchored by executive chef Paola Baccetti and hostess Claudia Poibomani.. Unique teaching experience about food and its preparation, wine pairing and the love that Italians put into every meal. Mamma Mia...we loved it!!! Bill and Louise Neville Canada

I just returned from a week at Casa Ombuto with Tuscookany, and can't say enough about how happy I am to have gone. I returned home and last week scoured my kitchen from head to toe with the newfound respect and love I have for cooking. The villa is beautiful in so many ways, as only Italy can be, and the people here have a love for and commitment to what they do that creates a really unique vacation. Claudia was helpful in every way imaginable, and Paola, our amazing, passionate and generous chef, is a life-force. Loved my time there, loved the people I cooked and lived with, and love how I feel about cooking since coming home. Hope to visit again soon! Perfetto!

I had the pleasure of visiting Casa Ombuto for the cook and hike week this October. As lovely as the accommodations and kitchen are - and they are LOVELY - it is the staff and the atmosphere that makes this such a special place. Claudia, the manager, goes above and beyond to make sure you are very well taken care of. And Chef Paola! She is a true educator, entertainer and chef in a kitchen of mixed level cooks. How she managed to get a beautiful meal on the table every night, and give us the credit for that beautiful meal, was amazing! The beautiful hikes were a lovely addition to the week. An enjoyable, educational and highly recommended holiday!

I attended the 1 week hiking and cooking class at Casa Ombuto with my sister in law. I found the accommodations (~250 years old, refurbished to today's standards) lovely, comfortable, and inviting. Claudia, the manager, greeted us with the most beautiful smile and the most fantastic attitude. She showed us to our accommodations, and pointed to the arbor by the pool where other members of our group had started congregating. Always unsure what kind of group you'll be a part of, we were immediately put at ease and met people we hope to travel with again in the future. We met Paula that night and she did not disappoint! Her cook book is well planned and layed out, the recipes are delicious, as are Paula's cool tid bits on Tuscan cuisine and the local way of preparing/cooking food. She is wonderful teacher! Casa Ombuto is actually walkable to Poppi, though there are hills - a lot of uphill on the way back. There are trails around the property as well. All in all, the week was magical. The people in our group were fun, adventurous, musical, and lovely. The owner and staff at Casa Ombuto were all amazing. We will be back!
