Wow.. this cooking adventure was so much more than learning the fine art of preparing traditional Sardinian foods with local products. The End result was delicious… but what will be taken away from this experience is the love & passion these two hosts, hold for each other, their heritage and the joy of food. Everything about it, exceeded our expectations. A must do… if you are anywhere close to Pula (we drove 45 minutes) … well worth every minute Thank you for sharing your Pane e Saba with us… Thanks Tammy & Jack Canada

Nico was a great guide, super accommodating and very friendly. Was so lovely to basically have the beach all to ourselves. Beautiful waters and the sand was so clean. I recommend coming when it’s a little warmer so that the shops and restaurants are open!

We loved everything: the beaches, the sights, and the interesting fun facts Claudia told us during the trip. We really recommend it to anyone, it's the perfect day trip for families, couples or individuals as well!

Great fun making pasta even if my husband’s shapes looked more like dinosaurs than corn ears Beautiful location and charming hosts. Would recommend

Really great experiences to visit the beaches in winter - almost empty, no tourists - GREAT
