Eleonora, your host, is a TV chef (with years of professional experience). She will be delighted to offer lessons in Italian and Tuscan cooking (given in English). So B&B La CUCINA is much more than a charming bed and breakfast - it is also a serious school of Italian cookery and on request can become a private and exclusive restaurant opening just for you.

The very cozy and romantic atmosphere of this house combines the authenticity of Italian way of life where food and art come together.

What a fabulous 3 nights we had in Eleonora's beautiful home. It is peaceful and quiet and close to so many amazing towns in Tuscany. Eleonora's breakfasts are amazing and we will definitely stay here again when we next visit Tuscany.

My husband and I just stayed at Eleonora's beautiful and cozy B and B. It truly is a gem and made our trip to Italy so memorable. We were greeted with so much hospitality. We were served a gourmet breakfast everyday from savory to sweet. All made with the freshest ingredients. She even got up early to make us breakfast before our tour at 6! The room is spacious and clean. You are awaken to beautiful sounds of birds chirping in the morning. It is such a nice retreat after the hustle and bustle of busy Florence. We had the pleasure to take her cookery class, which she accommodated for us due to a tour we had prior. We got to make pasta from scratch, filets, bread, and sorbet! It truly was the best meal we had our whole trip! She made everything so simple and also was very educational. I can now feel Confident to make pasta at home. Thank you so much Eleonora, we will be back :)

We have just had an amazing time with Eleanora. La CUCINA is a wonderful place to spend some time to rest and enjoy. We laughed, we cooked, we ate beautiful food and drank delicious wine. Our cooking class was fabulous, our wine tour amazing and we just loved everything. Eleanora is the perfect hostess, and our new friend. Her happiness is contagious. We are so grateful to have met Eleanora and spend this time together. Thank you so much.

Eleonora was a wonderful host and very welcoming. We loved learning about the local area and her experiences as a chef. We would highly recommend taking one of her cooking classes. Her yard is beautiful, we loved spending time with her dogs and pet duck. Hope to visit again!

Beautiful home! Be sure to book a class if ahead of time if you would like one. We were confused and were not able to take the class when we arrived. She is a great cook and the breakfast is beautiful! Enjoy your stay here.

Ciao,sono felice che tu stia visitando la mia pagina e spero vivamente che avremo il piacere di conoscerci. Una delle cose che amo di più infatti è viaggiare e quando sto qui in Italia poter ospitare viaggiatori mi riempie di allegria. Amo il cibo e mettere a tavola le persone è per me una gioia. Le 5 cose di cui non posso fare a meno sono: la musica,un buon paio di scarpe da ginnastica,i miei cani, un buon film e visitare il mercato delle spezie ovunque io vada!
