About the location

Join us in our Italian cookery and wine tasting holiday in this amazing, lush part of Northern Tuscany. Combining cooking and wine makes for the perfect marriage as we learn all the basic Italian cooking techniques and traditions that la bella "Garfagnana and Serchio Valley" has to offer.

We will visit the fresh local markets, wander the streets of Barga, (known as one of the prettiest villages in Italy), and explore Lucca, known for its intact Renaissance-era city walls. We’ll also hit a local vineyard where you'll be given a tour & learn everything you need to know about wine, then finish off with a tasting and a delicious Italian meal!

Solo traveller Adele joined this trip on her very first solo holiday and loved it. Here's what she had to say and a short video she made of the experience:

"I had such a fab time in Tuscany. My first solo holiday :) So glad I found your website!! Puts the comfort in travelling solo. Will def be back again soon."

The family run cookery school is situated on the edge of the Garfagnana and 36 km from the city of Lucca. It is only 250 metres from the train station of Barga-Gallicano, a strategic position for visiting the nearby towns of Lucca, Pisa, Florence and the famous Versilia. Pisa International airport is also just 90 minutes away.

The area is alive with concerts, folk festivals, outdoor food festivals (where you can savour local products), theatre, Barga Jazz and the Opera Barga, all that run throughout the year.

The structure of this charming bed and breakfast has small apartments with kitchen, kitchenette and ensuite rooms. You can enjoy tasty local cuisine in the Crescent restaurant and relax on the spacious veranda with views of the Apuan Alps.
