We spent a fun filled cooking with Carmen at her cooking school. I would highly recommend this experience. Carmen has a lovely personality and makes the class fun. We learned how to prepare four dishes that were all delicious. The hotel setting is very pretty.

Everyone cooks the entire dish being demonstrated and the lesson is filled with laughter, thorough explanations and many helpful tips. Sharing time with Carmen was wonderful... More

We recently spent time in the Naples region of Italy Our stay at Oasi Olimpia just capped off our holiday break It has a wonderful ambience and the staff are just perfect. The cooking lessons are a treat and relaxing time by the pool makes it a holiday to do again.
