Carlo et Giusy nous ont accueillies avec beaucoup de gentillesse dans leur merveilleuse maison. Nous avons passé une superbe soirée et dégusté d'excellents ravioli et tiramisù que nous avons bien sûr appris à faire avec un immense plaisir. Très belle expérience, merci Carlo et Giusy !

We had a great time with Carlo and Giusy. They are very friendly, warm and kind. We not only cooked, but also enjoyed talking with them. They called around to find what we were looking for. This cooking course was a very good memory for us. We would like to participate again if we have a chance.

Dear Carlo and Giusy, Thank you for this wonderful experience. The trip to the market was amazing. Thank you for opening your beautiful house to us and showing us typical recipes of Salento. We enjoyed your tipps and your explanations and loved the quality of the food and the seasonal products used! Also the semplicity and perfection of the dishes was amazing. We would love to come back. We highly recommend the cooking class at Villa Urso.

Cesarina from 2018Location: Lecce    Languages: Italian, French, English
"We live in an area rich in excellent raw materials, which is why we can afford to always be creative in the food shopping we do. Since we stopped working, we moved to the countryside in a family house built in 1800, where we have a rich orchard and we have fun preparing organic jams of all tastes. In winter we use the dining room, while in summer we organize dinners in the large garden."
