We stayed in the villes set in an olive grove 4-5km behind Laganas town. Lovely, with all facilities. Originally we were in apartments in Laganas town, but this did not suit, and Antonio was able to relocate us. Our days were pretty action packed with cooking in Effie’s home kitchen. The meals we cooked could have been eaten with the family or packed up and taken back to our villa/apartment. Another cooking activity was in a patisserie in Zakynthos town, where we made Baklava. On our last cooking day we went up into the mountains, where we watched and helped a lovely Greek lady cook one of her own free range chickens in the traditional way over a wood fire, which we ate in the tavernas’ garden. We have to say we could not have been looked after better by Denia, Effie and Antonio, they were a joy. Nothing was too much trouble and we had such fun. It was a busy and exhilarating week and we felt very sad to leave our “new found Greek family”.

We had a brilliant holiday with so much to do. Restful too with great fresh food, the family were lovely company and we saw huge turtles!

I could not have asked for a better holiday - thank you! Antonio, Denia, Effie and Adriana made me feel welcome from the moment I arrived. The family was so hospitable and made every effort to make sure my schedule was exactly what I wanted! So happy I stumbled across this site!

Antonio and Effie could not have been more attentive than they were. I had a fabulous time with them and would recommend this holiday to anyone who wants to really find out more about the way Greeks eat, cook and live other than just visit the tourist sites. PS you get to do all the best tourist sites as an added bonus!

A unique experience on this Culinary Tour program operated by a family team. Very personal and friendly, they couldn't have done more to make me feel welcome and taken care of. The traditional Greek cooking was a once in a lifetime experience and the Island offers some of the best swimming beaches.

I had a wonderful time with the family and thoroughly enjoyed the time spent with them, discovering the island and cooking up some spectacular meals. Could not have been happier.
