This was our second visit to TWC, first being in 2018. We loved it so much we came back with our friends. The accomodations changed since our first time with TWC, and we couldn't have been happier, Tim & Jan, owners of il Castagni, have worked over the last four years remodeling their boutique hotel...and it was amazing!!! Located in the center of Montefollonico, we couldn't have been more pleased. The activities planned throughtout the week are well organized and very entertaining. You'll experience all that Tuscany can offer, from ancient villages, family vineyards, Michelin-star restaurants to our favorite local hangout, Bar Sport. The local artisan's and restauranteur's cater to you and treat you like family. While learning to prepare these meals you also learn how special they each are. They truly love TWC and it shows. Collen and her staff, Aidan, Alex and Sophia were an absolute delight and made our trip even more special. They've planned a week that you'll never forget! Having been before, we experienced some familiar things, but also some new adventures. You're always worried about meeting expectations when we've told friends so much about TWC, that you hope it meets them. Well they exceeded them and our friends had the time of their lives. I know we'll be back in Montefollonico in the future...it is truly a special place and we have fallen in love with the village and the people and it is all due to TWC!!!

To say that Tuscan Women Cook was the trip of a lifetime – doesn’t do it justice! When we booked the trip, we couldn’t have imagined how special the experience would be. I have to start by saying that this is so much more than cooking and eating (though that part is AMAZING). When you arrive in Montefollonico and first see the small city itself and “I Castagni” (where you stay) – it is truly magical. It is so much more than a hotel – but more like a home within the walls of this amazing town where you are surrounded by history, culture and wonderful people. Each day began with a delicious breakfast with Tim and Jan (who own the hotel and took amazing care of us) and then each day’s adventures begin. Cooking with the local Nonnas was a very immersive and hands on experience as we worked together to create their treasured family recipes. Each chef and encounter was unique and special in its own way, and the food in every setting was more delicious than I can describe. Along the way, friendships made with not only the other travelers in our group, but the TWC team and their associates was an unexpected delight. When we signed up we knew we would be cooking but what we did not realize was the fact that every day, there was so much more. From trips into Siena and Montepulciano where we learned about the region and its history to visiting family wineries, a bee farm, an agriturismo where the most delicious cheese is made, shopping excursions and so much more - every minute was fantastic. My husband would add that along with cooking and excursions (which he loved as much as I did) – the wine, must be mentioned as it is free flowing and truly a special part of the trip as well and again we learned so much (and came home with a lot of wine). In the end, the week went so quickly and we would have happily stayed on for a few more weeks. It was truly that good. From the people, the places, the food and wine and of course the cooking – I just can’t say enough. We just couldn’t believe the things that were included and the way that they took care of our every need and want. The TWC team simply sensational from Coleen (the owner), to her team (Aidan, Alex and Claire) and our driver Fabio – there is nothing they can’t help with. We absolutely LOVED it and plan to take the trip again one day. Thank you Tuscan Women Cook for the best trip ever…it was definitely a bucket list type of experience that we will honestly never forget.

TWC had been on my to do list for a number of years. I finally talked my wife into going this past June. I like to cook, she not so much. As it turned out, we both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Although cooking classes were the focus (more of an experience- plenty of hands on, but not too technical), this certainly is not the only activity throughout the week. The week was rounded out with visits to local wineries, cheesemakers, copper smith, towns throughout the countryside, a ceramic factory, markets, and many good restaurants when we were not eating the fruits of our labors. We were lodged at a small agruitrismo 5 minutes away from the base in Montefollonico- a lovely medieval hill town in the Tuscan countryside just across the valley from Montepulciano. Plenty of trails to allow walking between villages to work off the extra calories if you choose. I'm not usually a group tour person, but this really worked! Fantastic people, but enough alone time if you prefer. Rhonda and Colleen are doing a nice job of continuing the TWC legacy. We enjoyed it so much, we have signed up for a return trip in the autumn to experience a different season.

What can I say about the most amazing fun filled week with old friends and new. As 4 Canadian women we had planned this trip for over 2 years . Belagaggio is beautiful with breath taking views of olive groves and vineyards . Two of us actually participated in the olive harvest .The day trip to Siena was a treat.The cooking classes were jam packed with new information and wonderful Tuscan recipes...... and wine ..... plenty of wonderful wine .... Our excursions to Montepulciano and Montefollonico were a delight .Everywhere we looked there was another stunning view to cherish.
A shout out to the lovely Eileen, the effervescent Ashley and Coleen the master craft behind the scenes.
This for us was a once in a life time trip one we will cherish forever.
Do yourself a favour .... just do it !!!

Tuscan Women and their Nona’s are one in a million .
Thank you for an amazing time.

We are seasoned travelers -- have been to Europe and Italy many times, but this trip was absolutely one of the very best, ever. All of the excellent reviews are spot on about this experience. The attention to detail, the immersion in culture, history, local products (olive oils, ceramics, linens) wines and food is unsurpassed. Preplanning went off without any problems, and any thing we needed while in country was taken care of (translation, transportation, cooking instructions, shopping venues). Everyone in our large group of 12 had a blast. I highly recommend Tuscan Woman Cook and am looking forward to coming back.

Tuscan Women Cook gives hands on classes with real Tuscan nonnas and chefs, and each one was a delight. I got immersed in the local culture by learning their techniques in their kitchens.
And it is FUN! (And I am no chef, let me tell you)

The pace was lively yet they made sure to give us down time, too. In addition to cooking – and eating and drinking – they offered an interesting variety of excursions. The agenda was well-timed to get in a wide assortment of experiences, each with an introduction to locals: craftsmen, artists, merchants, cheese makers, pottery, and of course wine cellars and vineyards. We even had the unique opportunity to visit an apiary.

The accommodations are in a quiet setting that begged to be photographed. The daily transportation was top-notch. I was so grateful to have Fabio drive that little bus around those curves and hills so I could gawk at the scenery.

What I felt set this experience way above standard is the personalities of the staff and their relationship with the local community. Colleen and Rhonda have high regard for the people they interact with, and they treated each of us as a valued friend, so much so that it was hard to say goodbye at the end of the week. I’d do this again – and plan to!

My husband and I traveled with our adult son and his wife. It was a fabulous week. Amazed at what comes out of small kitchens. The classes were hands on with the nonas and included a translator to enhance the experience. Side trips, restaurants, wine tastings, knowledgeable guides. Rhonda and Coleen were delightful. If you like Italian cooking, it's a dream. Spent the next week in Florence to cap the vacation.

Thank you fro the kind words. We were thrilled to be able to share our little neighborhood with you and your family. We look forward to seeing you all again in the future. Either Black Apron, or you come over for dinner when you're in town visiting your son and daughter in law.
