Authentic Villa in Praia a Mare - Stay with Cooking Course

Stay with Real Families in Southern Italy: Learn Italian & Traditional Southern Cooking Back

  • Tour Code : TUR-01340
  • Type : Private
  • Duration : days
  • Departs from : Lamezia Terme
  • Meeting Place : Airport or Rail Station


Come and stay with real families in Italy and enjoy a truly authentic Italian experience.  In bigger cities in Italy like Rome, Florence and Milan where most of the larger language classes are offered, these cities have so many English-speaking tourists now that it is virtually impossible to get a real conversation in Italian in, since English is widely spoken everywhere! In our southern Italy language programs, we treat things very differently and offer unique experiences for individuals who really want to be immersed in Italian language and culture.

Programs can be customized around your goals and objectives and range from 1 week to several months.  You enjoy accommodations at the Villa Vecchia located in center of the town of Praia a Mare only 200 meters from the beach.

Gaetano Calabrese and his wife Antonella have two daughters Flavia and Michella who are both attending college. Gaetano is the ambassador for Calabria and knows the history and ancient culture that makes the region of Calabria such a beautiful region!  Antonella is a fantastic cook who will bring you into their family's beautiful kitchen and teach you the secrets to true Italian cooking.  Meals served outside on the beautiful sea-view terrace. 

Our cultural immersion programs allow you to experience daily interactionwith the family and the local community, family meals and make new friends in a town where English is never heard or spoken - so it forces you to learn!

Accessing the towns and cities in southern Italy are accessible by local rail which is also walking distance from the villa!

Client Testimonials

There are no words to describe the fabulous time we had in Italy. Everything went as you promised. Absolutely no problems! The venues were fabulous. The guides were punctual and helpful. It couldn't have worked out better. You and your staff deserve high praise for the quality and efficiency of your work. BTW, Guiseppe was an absolute delight. We enjoyed his informative and effervescent personality he was a hit with our group. The serenading was an added bonus! Our stay in Calabria went well too. Thank you for all your work and coordination for making this dream come true for us! If any of us travel there again, you will surely be hearing from us. I will not hesitate to recommend you to others as well. Ciao for now,
