Cooking and Vineyards of Southern Tuscany

The hillside village of Pergo enchants. While the village is situated just four miles from the Etruscan city walls of Cortona, it feels like a world away, and not only because the town consists of a handful of medieval streets. Surrounded by rolling green hills – and even some mountains in the distance – Pergo is a place where nature, history, art, and gastronomic traditions have fused to create a breathtaking and relaxing getaway. When not learning the ways of traditional Tuscan food, delight in the picturesque setting populated by olive groves and vineyards. Pergo is only a short ride away from other charming towns such as Arezzo, Pienza, Perugia, Deruta, and Assisi.

Nestled in the scenic region is the family-owned estate that will be your home away from home with its lovingly restored 18th-century historic dwelling. The owners respected La Corte dei Papi’s past, as they used antique materials in the restoration and conserved original elements, including vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and terracotta floors. Many of the hotel accommodation rooms feature a magnificent view of not only the garden but also the rolling hills of the region. The owner, David, and his mother will welcome you like family and show you the Tuscany of your dreams.

Trip taken April 2018
The second place we stayed for cooking was La Corte dei Papi. Wow just when you thought it couldn't get any better it did. David , Gabriella, Ivana , Slavan , JR, Giusseppi, Carla, and all the staff were amazing I would go live there if I could. The classes by Giuseppe and his staff were truly awesome . This is a trip I will never forget and truly loved everything about both places. I would give 10 stars if I could . Thanks for the choices you made . Also David made everyone feel like they were home not strangers Thank You David for being so nice and warm Our love to White the cat as well. And please give your Mom Gabriella our love as well.
