About the location

Passionate about food and the stunning surroundings of the Amalfi coast, this friendly family-run Italian B&B and cooking school will teach you not just how to cook, but will also ensure you take time to relax and unwind on your Italian cookery holiday.

Using fresh local produce, you will learn to cook simple Neapolitan Italian dishes in a typical Italian kitchen housed right next door to your lovely accommodation which also features a wood fire pizza oven.

Your accommodation will be in a beautiful, Italian style casa, dating from the 17th century, located in the medieval village of Massa Lubrense, just a 20 minute drive from Sorrento. Each room has been stylishly decorated and is equipped with AC, and the outdoor area has plenty of beautiful space to relax in by the pool Jacuzzi.

On the stunning Amalfi coast, the surrounding natural areas are captivating with their orange and lemon groves, ancient vineyards, beautiful beaches and a perfect climate. Sorrento, just a short drive away, combines a relaxed attitude with blissed-out beaches, great water sports and of course, gourmet cuisine.

When you’re not cooking or lounging by the pool, get to know the surrounding area by hiking on one of 12 local trails, sample some limoncello at a nearby factory, or explore some of the nearby towns and sights.
