To make your Italian cooking holiday a truly unique and relaxing experience we have selected restored historic homes in the medieval hilltop village of Toffia. You will be staying in one of the historic homes or apartments within or nearby these medieval walls. Toffia lies in the Sabina region, between Rome and Umbria. These homes are self-contained, clean and very comfortable. They have an interesting history and have been meticulously restored and tastefully furnished by their owners. Our cookery holidays and vacations are also a fantastic way to experience authentic rural life in Central Italy, staying in complete comfort and living 'like the locals do' in a medieval hilltop village.
'Live like the locals'
The terrace homes we have selected exclusively for our Italian cookery holidays and vacations are all within or nearby the ancient stone walls of Toffia. This picturesque and unspoilt hilltop medieval village built in the 10th century on a cliff, dominates the stunning countryside of Sabina.

Your Italian cooking classes are held in our home near Toffia. Our homes have comfortable living areas, ample double bedrooms and newly renovated bathrooms and kitchens. Some have private gardens and all have wonderful views over green hills and valleys and picturesque piazzas just outside the door, so you are welcome to pull out a chair, sit in the sun, sip on a glass of local wine and watch the world go by!
