My week at Casa Ombuto has been one of the most memorable trips I have done! The amazing Chef Paola was not only an incredible chef but also friendly, funny, and always cheerful. Our host Alex and the rest of the staff were insuperable, eager to help us with anything and ready to have a good time with us! The... More

In fifty years of world travel adventures, from the exotic to the mundane, I will remember the week my granddaughter and I spent cooking with Paola as wonderful an experience I could have imagined. We learned, we cooked, we laughed, we cooked, made friends and cooked some more in an idyllic setting. A toast to the incomparable Paola and everyone... More

What a lovely place to spend a few days and experience some fantastic food and drink. Nothing was too much trouble for Alex our host and chef Laura was delightful (if not a terror in the kitchen) The villa is beautiful and we spent our mornings lazing by the pool before rolling our sleeves up at 3 and starting work...

Our week at Casa Ombuto under the tutelage of Paola was superb and sublime. We could not imagine anything that could have been done better or that would have made our experience better. Paola stuns with her culinary skills and expertise. Her personality is so upbeat and contagious. The Villa and surroundings are magnificent. We met so many amazing diverse... More

This was my first time in Italy and I wanted to learn authentic Italian cooking. I could not have chosen a better place than Casa Ombuto. The Villa and surroundings are breathtaking. The staff treats you like family. The other guest were great company. The making and eating of the food was divine. And Chef Paola is not only an... More

I planned this week long cooking vacation last minute and I couldn't have made a better choice. Once I landed in Firenze, I rented a car (this was a little of a disorganised ordeal, but hey when in Italy) and took a winding road to the Villa. The views were phenomenal. I arrived early (around 2 - check in is... More

My mum and I had the most amazing week with Paola and everyone at Casa Ombuto! Not only were we lucky enough to be there with a great group of people, the location and atmosphere was second to none. Paolo is a top class chef and person, who entertained us for hours when we weren't in the kitchen. The amenities... More

Lovely accomodations and pool. Very intimate relaxing setting. You will work and truly learn how to cook the real stuff. Then go freshen up and sit down to a perfect 4 course dinner each night - which you helped make. The wines served are great, tuscan and hosts always very generous. Lunches and breakfasts are great. Paola is - well... More

I went to Casa Ombuto with 13 people from Vancouver. We had such a great time cooking with Paola, going on wine tours, laying by the pool, laughing, eating, and drinking. It's a luxury villa with all the amenities. It all equals the best trip I have ever taken. I can't wait to go back. Paola is a great teacher... More

Don't hesitate anymore! Book your cooking class here with Paulo and the great staff! I enjoyed it with my Mom and it was the most wonderful experience. The rooms are terrific and comfortable too. The pool breathtaking. Book a massage for your first day...it was the best I've ever had. In fact I had two massages while I was there.... More
