Photo of Olives

6 nights - 7 days all inclusive stay designed for people who like to experience Tuscany from within. This school produces its own organic extra virgin olive oil and the olive harvest is for our guests a great chance to be part of one of the most joyful experience of country life in Tuscany.

Combined with the 3 cooking classes in a traditional family kitchen, you'll have an opportunity to engage in a truly unique experience: picking olives and participating in the process of olive pressing and extra virgin olive oil making. An olive oil tasting class, under the guidance of an expert, is included into the weekly schedule.

This course is available in November. Cooking on this time of the year is based on truffles, mushrooms, pumpkin, stew, and soups. It's winter cooking....and fresh made extra virgin olive oil will be the KING in the kitchen of course, along with the new olive chefs (YOU!)

Daily excursions to art cities, medieval towns, open markets, food and wine producers complete this authentic experience on real Tuscan life and cooking.
