Adam, November 2019

A truly memorable and unique experience for families in this beautiful area of Italy. Lia and her family are so welcoming and we felt right at home at their gorgeous farm with amazing views. We first met all their sweet animals and then watched as Maria made different types of Italian cheeses and were then able to have a go ourselves. We then moved onto making pizza from scratch with help from Lia and her daughter Anna, including making the dough and then cooking it in their wood-fired oven. An amazing meal followed, eating our pizzas and cheeses with various meats and beautiful homemade wine and limoncello with the wonderful company of Lia and Anna. My children spent the remainder of the time running around the farm, playing on the swings, slides, and spending time with the animals. Thanks very much for your hospitality and one of the highlights of our trip!

Today we visited this Farm with our infant and 2 year old. It was the perfect afternoon for our whole family. We started off the visit with a walk through the farm learning about the fruits, wine making, olives, etc. We tasted fresh fruits off the trees. Our two year old loved the horses, dogs, turtles, rabbits, chickens, turkey and of course Peppa the pig…the friendliest pig you will ever meet! He loves playing and having his tummy rubbed! After our walk through the farm we made fresh mozzarella cheese and homemade pizza. We had a beautiful lunch in the garden with our new friends. It was a wonderful visit and a perfect afternoon.

Having done lots of the typical tourist trips in Sorrento we can can honestly say that this one is by far the most authentic and memorable! We loved it! If there is one place you should visit in Sorrento it’s this little hidden gem. Can’t recommend highly enough. We wish you very best wishes for the future and cant thank you enough for the highlight of our holiday.
