If you really want to have the time of your life, please, please make reservations for Patrizia and Paolo's slice of heaven. I know I loved my time with them at the villa and all that went with it.

I was staying at a neighboring farmhouse and found out about Tasty Tuscany's classes and I'm so glad!! I had the most fabulous experience learning to make Tuscan cuisine. Manul is a wonderful teacher, she is so patient, funny and smart. Her way of using produce from her own garden, seasonal items, and/or local and organic was inspiring. She is a wealth of information and so passionate about the value of great food. Each menu was well thought out, with simple ingredients and delightful. We made multiple courses each night in the kitchen while sipping wine and later sitting down together for a wonderful meal. The conversation, ambiance and vibe of this place was a true treasure. Each evening I would hear about the fantastic day excursions the other guests took with Paolo and I have to say I was jealous. This is a true one-stop holiday destination.

We've just come back from six wonderful nights with Manul and Paolo, and so many happy memories. Not to mention a stack of wonderful recipes to recreate at home. Travelling with my 14-year old daughter, this really was an ideal trip: mornings of visiting fascinating local places, afternoons of cooking, evenings of eating, talking, laughing. The house is in an idyllic hillside location, surrounded by olive trees. The rooms are comfortable, although we didn't spend a lot of time in them. Well, the odd afternoon siesta perhaps. The pool is delightful, perfect for a cooling dip. The itinerary is a perfect combination of activity and downtime, though definitely errs on the busy side, so if you are just looking to sit by the pool, this is not the trip for you. But if you want stimulating adventures and incredible food, with great people, then I would say book now! I'd love to go back when they do the olive harvest, what an experience that would be. Thanks to Paulo and Manul, it was most definitely a trip we will always remember!

We were so glad we listened to our friend, Tony, who recommended Tasty Tuscany. What a great experience! The schedule was perfect - just the right mix of relaxation time, excursions and cooking. Manul and Paolo were wonderful hosts - Paolo was the perfect tour guide and Manul is not only a great cook but a wonderful teacher, too. We were also blessed to be joined by two other couples who became our new friends. It was a lot of fun and we’ve all decided to not only stay in touch but to do it again in a few years! Mille grazie, Tasty Tuscany! Ci retorneremo! (We shall return!)
