Italian Cooking Short Breaks in Tuscany

Our short break cookery courses in Tuscany run March to May, and September to October. Our 4 day/3 night breaks to Tuscany give you the chance to discover the speciality dishes of the region and learn more about its rich cultural heritage. Be taken away by the stunning beauty of Tuscany’s rolling hills and medieval towns. Spend a day exploring Tuscany’s capital, Florence, wandering through food markets before having lunch at a local trattoria.

The whole experience was fab. So well organised. All of the people from Flavours and the other guests were so friendly. I actually felt I learnt a lot more than expected.

Villa Accommodation

Our villas in Tuscany have been hand-picked for their secluded locations, stunning views and traditional features, making them the perfect location for a relaxing Italian cookery course. Wander around the grounds of the villa, relax by the pool, and enjoy a refreshing glass of Prosecco as you dine al fresco. Our villas are situated near Florence, where you can visit a local food market and wander the old streets of the city. View our photo gallery to see more of our cooking venues.
