Agata & Curtis, UK - Aug 2019

We've had the most amazing time with Rita and Alex! The atmosphere is fantastic and you feel like a part of the family; they really look after you. This holiday is suitable for both solo and group travellers, as you will all bond together as a group anyway. We would love to come back in the future!

This holiday exceeded all expectation. Rita and her family are always putting guests first, nothing is too much trouble. If the ingredients are right why look to change the recipe. I am looking forward to having guests and treating them to some lovely Italian food.

Our four night Italian cooking course was awesome! It was far more than promised and exceeded any of our expectations! Rita, our hostess with the mostest, was considerate, thoughtful and gracious. She guided us through pizza and pasta making with her many years of real life experience.
