What a wonderful experience. We love to cook and appreciate good quality, fresh food. Mauritzio and his mother specially prepared a class for us as we are vegetarians that do not eat eggs.

A group of nine ladies and we all adored the evening cookery class. Mauritzio and Mama Maria guided us through the preparation of a traditional meal. We were delighted to sample the home grown olives, herbs and bergamot liqueur. The atmosphere was relaxed and fun. The food delicious and the views stunning.

From the moment we arrived we were treated like family. The property is perched on a hilltop with spectacular sweeping views over Modica. Maurizio showed us... More
