This was our highlight of a week in Tuscan country side. Massimo and Bruno showed us how to make full course dinner in a relaxed atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience learning how to make pasta and beef involtini.

The agriturissmo is an Italian Country apartment, charming and comfortable just down the road from the castle (winery). Massimo is your host and chef extraordinaire. His home is a wealth of collections and a gastronomical feast for dinner. Massimo joins you. Do not miss dinner. Do not miss the home made bread for breakfast ( not the tasteless Tuscan ).... More

This was the highlight of our trip to Italy! We still make our own pasta once a week. We did not stay there, but Patrizia and Massimo taught us how to make Italian food....not like the restaurants., but like the Italians. Thank you.

“We had one spacious bedroom with normally shared living accommodation with another bedroom, except that it was all ours because no-one occupied the other bedroom so loads of space to ourselves with amazing views from all angles.”
