Villa Parrano -also known as Torre del Tartufo- is owned by the friendly couple Pippa and Lars. She’s from South-Africa, he’s from Holland, but they certainly share their passion for the good life, which came together in three Tuscan villas available for a cooking classes/culinary holiday combination: Tuscookany.
