lodging with wine tour and cooking class on site


New member
Hi, I am looking for lodging for my friend and me from aug 11-13 in tuscany. We are interested in a cooking class and a wine tasting and since we are short on time, we would like to do those activities at the property we are going to stay at....any recommendations on properties that also have a pool and don't break the bank (under 100-150 EUR per night, excluding activities)?

Great idea to add a cooking lesson and pool time to your vacation! Many of these can arrange for wine tastings to accompany your cooking lesson...just let them know what you are interested in the most.

I suggest you have a look at Taverna di Bibbiano, I was just there last month and the structure is beautiful and she has cooking lessons. https://www.discovertuscany.com/san-gimignano/accommodation/taverna-di-bibbiano.html

You can also look at Borghetto - another little place I visited recently near San Gimignano. https://www.discovertuscany.com/san-gimignano/accommodation/il-borghetto.html

However, in high season you may have better chance with a B&B, that offer shorter stays:

Are some of my favorites.

Buon Viaggio,
