Location

What our travellers are saying...

Wow wow wow This was a truly amazing experience from truly amazing hosts. Lara & Andrea compliment each other superbly and this shines through in their service. We had some laughs whilst being educated and got to eat the breathtakingly tasty food at the end. We walked away feeling totally content and we can not recommend this experience enough Thank you so much xxx

A family amazing Cooking class We had a wonderful time today in Lara's and the greatest chef Andrea's lovely house with a fantastic view over Garda lake, it was one of the most powerful experience we had as a family. We learned to make pasta, pizza and more... and then to sit by the balcony drinking white win and to eat what we have just prepared. We warmly recommend you all to try this special experience!!!

Romantic Cooking Class , Highlight of our trip! We were on honeymoon and wanted a romantic cooking class to learn how to make Italian food. We are so glad we came here! We were on the course with another lovely couple who were lucky enough to be doing a 3/4 day stay at the accommodation which has an incredible view over Lake Garda. We were welcomed by our hosts, and shown how to make a delicious 4 course meal which we ate later on. Risotto, Past
