Pasta Making Courses
Learn the art of making pasta without even leaving the property! We offer half day courses which finish with either lunch or supper where you sit together and enjoy the fruits of your labour in a fully serviced dining experience. In a completely relaxed and hands on session, where you do all the work, Salvatore passes on his knowledge and experience of traditional, rustic, Italian home cooking. He will show you all you need to know about making pasta, the different varieties and recipes and different utensils and methods you can use.

Olive Harvesting Holidays
If you fancy a rare opportunity to step off the day to day treadmill of life for a chance to really appreciate our environment and be at one with nature then why not come and help us pick our olives. We harvest our olives in November when they are lovely and plump after the summer sun. On picking days we indulge you in an alfresco picnic which includes a glass of wine or two. You will also be taken on a visit to the local Frantoio olive press where you can watch the olives you have picked being pressed into delicious extra, extra virgin olive oil, some of which you will be able to take home to share with your family and friends.
Price: Guests pay the appropriate room rate, as per our Accommodation and Rates page for their stay, plus €25 per person, per day that you join in at the olive grove. Price includes your day out in the olive grove, helping with the harvest, a picnic lunch with homemade wine, a visit to the olive press and a little bit of oil to take home with you.
