Patrizia and her husband, Luca, could not have been more accommodating and welcoming. They were so patient with my grandkids, and Luca took them to pick vegetables in their gardens. The kids loved making the pasta from scratch. It was a terrific experience.

Our entire family had an incredible experience - my children loved spending time with Patrick and her husband. We felt like family. The food, the view and the company made this an unforgettable experience

If you are thinking about booking with Patrizia, DO IT! If I could leave 10 stars, I would. Patrizia and Luka welcomed us into their home with open arms. It was the most authentic Italian experience. We learned so much from them and made the most delicious food. It was one of our favorite experiences from our trip abroad. Thank you for the best night Patrizia and Luka!!

Patritzia was wonderful and her home was gorgeous in the mountains. Need to allot for extra time to get there as it is quite remote. Delicious food and best tiramisu!

Wow, what an incredible experience. My wife and I were in town celebrating our anniversary and this was the perfect activity. Couldn’t speak more highly of Patrizia for her kindness and guidance. She was very helpful in providing directions for arrival. Throughout the experience, Patrizia and Luca made us feel like we were a member of the family. I highly recommend booking this!

"My life is tied to the lake, this is where I have my roots and where I’m fine. I am a painter, my work allows me to manage time and the kitchen is for me my second workshop, where I can easily create dishes instead of paintings. My two children, now grown up and my husband were those who made me practice and love cooking. Hosting friends during the summer in the garden was an opportunity to understand that receiving guests is a pleasure and a personal enrichment. The ingredients of my recipes are all genuine, from local producers:  honey, cheese, fish, directly from the fisherman in Dervio, and vegetables from my garden that my husband cares with passion for many years. Our house is a bit like the houses of the past, the fireplace and the stove allow us to warm up and cook with wood, and I must say that the result of the dishes cooked on the wood stove is very good. Also in the garden we have a kitchen and, in summer, we prepare, cook and always eat outdoors."
