The beautiful Antica Masseria is an ancient farm not far from town and in the heart of the Sicilian countryside.
On arrival at the baglio, you'll be welcomed by the charming Baroness Di Salvo, who will tell you about the ancient house. You'll visit the 18th-century baglio (country house) and the small church consecrated as a Sacred Family Oratory, where mass is still celebrated. Enjoy the shade of old palms, weeping willows, climbing roses and wisteria. The atmosphere of the farm and the house captures the essence of Italian nobility and the charm of a bygone era.
Then, begin a cooking lesson based on preparing some typical Sicilian dishes. The house chef will show you the main ingredients and procedures as she goes. Don an apron and join in if you like. At the end of the cooking course, you'll taste the dishes shown during the lesson.
After your delicious lunch, there's free time to relax in the garden in the shade of the magnificent, luxuriant vegetation.
