Cooking, Wine & Pampering Tour At A Lovely Villa Near The Amalfi Coast
Indulge in a dream-come-true cooking, wine and sightseeing adventure in Sorrento, Capri, and the Amalfi Coast. Stay at a lovely four star boutique villa hotel on 5 ½ acres with park, pool, gardens and vast views over the Bay of Naples. Just 10 a minute walk from Sant’Agata Sui Due Golfi and 25 minutes by bus to Sorrento. Peaceful but close to town.
In the hotel’s state of the art kitchen with individual work stations, cook with joyful teacher, Carmen, passionate about food all her life. At each cooking class dinner, a wine connoisseur guides you through your tastings of Campania’s best wines. Visit a warm, hospitable farm family who make excellent olive oil and mozzarella. Tour their farm and taste their cheeses, olive oil and limoncello. A genuine Italian experience! Explore the magnificent Amalfi Coast with its winding roads hugging the hillside that falls steeply to the azure sea: colourful Positano, lively Amalfi and stunningly beautiful Ravello.
