Activity/Tour


Immerse yourself in the rhythms and beauty of farm life through Let’s Cook in Umbria’s many adventures, Italian cookery classes and cultural activities. Since 2005 we have been offering an authentic cooking experience, set in a real farmhouse located in the heart of Italy.

Come join our italian cooking classes, gourmet tours, visits to chocolate and olive oil producers and truffle hunting and excursions to villages throughout Umbria and Tuscany. We offer a unique opportunity to spend some time in the countryside of Italy, learning about authentic Italian food, touring beautiful art sites and relaxing in the garden or by the pool. In the farm we produce vegetables, fruits, eggs, jams, wine and extra-virgin olive oil: the same local ingredients that are used to prepare the food during our cooking lessons.

Let’s Cook in Umbria is an oasis of peace where you can rejuvenate your senses. Located in the heart of Italy, not far from Tuscany, the farmhouse is surrounded by rolling hills, vineyards and olive trees, and steeped in Etruscan and Medieval history. The farm features cozy, well-appointed apartments, breath-taking views and unique cooking activities that will allow you to fully experience the authentic rhythms and beauty of life in a farm.

Raffaella runs this scenic and peaceful family farm, only 4km from the historical center of Perugia.
The cooking classes and the lunches are held in Raffaella's home. During the hands-on cookery lessons you will have the chance to prepare some authentic Italian dishes in an informal and friendly environment, and will learn the passion of the Italian kitchen. Our Italian (English-speaking) teacher will guide you through the preparation of simple but delicious Italian recipes and will reveal some of her culinary secrets.
Raffaella is waiting you to offer a truly unique culinary adventure!

We offer several proposals to meet your requirements: one day cooking class, 2 to 3 days cookery courses, and packages including accommodation, cooking classes and half day trip to the producers of extra virgin olive oil, truffle, chocolate and wines ��" including a tasting of their products ��" or to some artistic cities in Umbria and Tuscany.
