We booked the Delicious Tuscany package and could not have been happier. The package included a 5-course dinner the night of our arrival, a cooking class, and wine tasting. All 3 of those elements were fantastic and exceeded our expectations. The dinner on property was intimate and delicious - Paola did a wonderful job of serving everyone and making sure guests were happy. The cooking class is in a picturesque town - "Borro" - at an incredible restaurant called Osteria del Borro. We learned so much about Tuscan cooking and then ate one of the best meals of our life - the only 2 people in the restaurant (they are closed for lunch). The wine tasting took place at a 1000 year old abbey in the Chianti mountains, surrounded by an old monestary and beautiful gardens.
Belpoggio was a fantastic choice - the service from the staff is amazing - nothing is too much trouble. They provided great recommendations for places to go in the area for dinners and always had a map or suggestion to share before we were heading out for the day.
I actually loved the location - the scenery you get is more mountainous than other parts of Tuscany - it's absolutely stunning. We also really enjoyed Loro Ciuffena, the little town that's nearby. Go stroll around one evening and look at the working water mill that's right in the center of town. It doesn't get more picturesque.
It's a convenient 30 minute train ride to Florence if you are interested in going there for a day trip.
We loved our stay and most definitely want to return in the future. Thank you Belpoggio for making our Tuscany vacation so amazing!
