The swimming pool into the olives grove with a stunning view.

" Fontana del Papa is not a 5* hotel. In fact it isn't really a hotel at all... You will stay in the family home in lovely light and airy bedrooms with views out over the olive trees and rolling Italian countryside. You will eat your meals all together at a long table and can't help but overhear the odd family squabble from the kitchen. Family life goes on around you. I didn't feel as if I was the centre of attention (as you often do in a 5* hotel) but it felt better than that - I felt like I was a guest rather than a paying visitor.

The lessons take place in a normal kitchen .... Every day we cooked something fabulous based on what was fresh in the veggie garden that day..." read more
