Offering Tuscany Bed and Breakfast accommodation, this little B&B is a beautiful house sitting within 6000m² of gardens. Not an old house, the use of terracotta and local woods means it blends beautifully into the Tuscan countryside.

The house is owned by the family who farm the land, producing organic vegetables, fruit and extra virgin olive oil. There are beautiful meadows and fields around the house.

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.

La CUCINA B & B is suitable for everyone, especially to all those who seek a unique and comfortable place where to stay overnight and enjoy a wonderful breakfast seatting in the garden in summer or in front of the fireplace in winter .

Eleonora was incredibly welcoming and friendly, made it feel like a home from home. Her house has a rustic charm but is still clean, neat and well presented with everything you need. The setting is beautiful. We did a pasta cookery course with her the next morning which we would recommend everybody do - it's the best reason to come to Eleonora's house, she is a brilliant chef and we had the most amazing time learning to make pasta in her kitchen. If you are in Tuscany, this is an opportunity not to miss.

We had a fantastic stay with Eleonora! The house is beautiful and very unique. Eleonora herself was a great host and a joy to talk to, and we felt spoilt with lavish breakfasts and snacks. We treated ourselves to a cooking class with a wine tour while staying and neither of us had ever had to opportunity to learn from such a passionate and knowledgeable person. We've left feeling as if we may actually cook pasta from scratch on a regular basis! This was truly a highlight of our visit and shouldn't be missed.

Eleanora was a perfect hostess in every way. The room was comfortable and clean, and we felt like a special guest of hers. The breakfasts were out of this world delicious. She had great suggestions for restaurants and helped us navigate the area. We had a cooking class also, and loved it! She is an excellent teacher, in addition to being a top notch chef. We hope to return!

Our stay with Eleonora was simply perfect. Great location, communication and the facilities were beautiful in our room. The highlight for us was the cooking class we chose to do, which was an experience you must try. Anyone from a chef to a beginner will definetly learn something grill Eleonora' authentic Italian cooking methods. We simply cannot reccomend this AirBnb enough.. it's more than just a place to sleep it's an incredible experience. Will definetly be making our way back again soon !

Eleonora's place was off the beaten path in a charming house with lots of character. We were greeted with a Julia Roberts size smile from Eleonora and she was very welcoming. Our room was very clean with a very comfortable bed-- we slept with the windows open (mosquito screen present) and listened to the outdoor peace both nights. We took Eleonora's cooking class with her and absolutely loved it! She wanted to make sure we learned a lot and enjoyed our experience with it! The entire experience and location was priceless! One night Eleonora played the piano and it was truly amazing to hear. She's very talented! We loved her pet dogs and enjoyed watching the pet duck outside while we ate our delicious breakfast she prepared. We will be back! Thank you Eleonora and Paola for an unforgettable time in Tuscany!

Such a lovely property and location in Tuscany. We arrived to a warm welcome from Eleonora and immediately felt very "at home" . The bedroom was large with a comfortable bed and tastefully furnished with our own ensuite shower room. Plenty of hot water and lovely locally made bathroom products. Our first afternoon and evening was wine tasting then cookery school. It was such a delight to spend 3 hours with Eleonora in her kitchen learning to make pasta, Italian sauces, peppronata, gorgeous regional breads and the most divine tiramisui. Breakfast was scrumptious with a lovely selection of regional produce. We arrived as guests and left as friends. Thanks Eleonora for your wonderful hospitality.

Eleonora's stylish and lovely home stands in its own grounds around five miles north of Figline Valdarno. It is beautifully furnished and the guest room, with its own small bathroom, is very comfortable. Breakfast is served in what in England we would call a conservatory which looks out into the garden. Eleonora's hospitality and great breakfast dishes alone made our stay memorable but our cookery lesson and the meal which followed made it unforgettable. We highly recommend "B&B La Cucina" and highly recommend guests book themselves an afternoon of culinary fun with Eleonora and her friend Paola in the kitchen. Can't think that anyone will have regretted doing so.

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!
