We made arrangements to attend the cooking class at Fontelunga by friends but were extremely disappointed when we arrived and no one was at the site to greet us. After knocking on doors and calling, we finally got in touch with Donatella's son. We had already been waiting for 30 minutes and were told that his mother had car problems but would try to get there soon. Knowing that she was not prepared for us and with no guarantees as to how much longer we would have to wait, we told the son that we would be leaving. We were especially surprised that no one else was there for the class because we had been told that there would be other people from her villas attending as well. In fact, we re-arranged our plans so we could accomodate her request that we attend on that night. We were terribly disappointed and surprised that no effort was made to contact us by email to let us know that there was a problem.
