As a newly wed couple, we counted this week in Tuscany as somewhat of a bucket list-slash-honeymoon trip. I love cooking (not an experienced home cook by any means, but I enjoy making meals for friends and family) and my husband loves wine, so Tuscany...More

Thank you for your interest in our Tuscookany courses. Most participants are amateur cook lovers who enjoy cooking together and enjoying what they have made in good company with great wine. The level of expertise is not that important we have had different levels from no experience to chefs, its more about the total experience of cooking together and having fun doing it. We do have singles attending all the courses in the year. Its generally a mix of couples, singles, and friends traveling together. Age is between 25 and 65 generally. Those guests who choose the three day course are more pressurised for time and cannot spare a week, we cover the key basics (pasta and pizza) and you prepare two four course dinners. For the full week its more elaborate as its four lessons instead of two. Both Casa Ombuto and Torre del Tartufo offer three day courses and the locations are equally great. We look forward to welcoming you in Tuscany!

You are more flexible if you have a car as you have plenty of free time to explore the area and the villa is quite remote. Alternatively we can arrange a transfer from Florence airport to the villa. If you let me know your flight details closer to the time we can arrange this for you. There is an extra charge for this.
You can also get to Arezzo with public transport and you can get a cab to the villa from Arezzo train station. Have a look at the website of Trenitalia
