Where you're going to stay
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.
