Open Your Fantasies (OYF) with Paola and her unbelievable cooking classes. While teaching classes to us, she often told us to "open your fantasies" by trying new food and altering the ingredients in the recipes.

Villa Ombuto is so peaceful, beautiful, gorgeous, cozy, homey, great balance between the medieval style and modern conveniences and infrastructure! All the stuff is great! The tour to the wine and olive producers was very well organized and the choice of producers was also excellent! Everything was beyond any expectations!!!

It turned out to be one of the best choices I've ever made. The accommodation is spacious, comfortable and pristine. The staff were delightful,...

Spent a wonderful week at Casa Ombuto with Queen Paola, our fantastic chef!! Was great to live and taste this Tuscany experience in a wonderful spot and with such a pro that truly shares her passion for food. Amenities are great, the course is "serious" enough so you really learn something but relax enough so you feel you are actually...
