Started off with Truffle hunting! Epic! The truffle hunter was very knowledgable and the dog was super cute! We then headed to meet up with our Chef and prepared home made pasta, italian appetisers and mains, all containing local products and lots of Truffle:) and wine.. i DO HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS ACTIVITY, because its fun and very interesting!

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 5 November 2016

I came here with my wife spending a few days in Tuscany. The hosts were excellent and each morning provided us with places to see and things to do. The rooms we had were spacious and comfortable and the views from the room of San Gimignano’s Towers and the surrounding vineyards were amazing. Beautiful and peaceful surroundings.

My daughter and I took a day trip from Florence to take this cooking class. We loved everything about it! The area was amazingly beautiful and a needed retreat from the city. Flavio was an excellent teacher and a pleasure to get to know. Maybe it was the entire experience, but we agreed that this was the best food we...

We had dinner here one night and also took the cooking class. Just a delightful experience. It was everything we thought our Tuscan experience would be. Fulvio is knowledgeable about...

I received a recommendation of Il Vicario on Trip Advisor when I was planning my trip to Italy. I wanted the Tuscan cooking school experience and this locale was highly recommended. I absolutely concur! This is a family owned B&B and the niece Katia does the instructions and her uncle Flávio cleans up. There were eight of us on our...

We were made to feel at home here thanks to the atmosphere created by Fulvio and Katia. They have a beautiful location and our room was very comfortable. It was nice to have the pool and we took advantage of it most every day. The other B&B guests were warm, friendly and we had great conversations. I had two cooking...

We had some friends recommend this place and boy are we glad they did! They had found it by happenstance during their trip to Italy and said it was just fabulous. We booked our trip through a travel agent, but they refused to book Il Vicario because it wasn't one of their normal booking accommodations. Thankfully we proceeded to book...

We attended a cooking class with Katia. There were two other couples present. Although there were varying levels of skill and experience Katia put everyone at ease and made the class fun for all. Not only did we learn a few dishes to bring home but we learned a lot about the base to all great Italian cooking. We also...
