You will stay at Villa Elena. A two-hectare park will help you relax in complete privacy surrounded by a unique silence, enjoying a charming swimming pool that will refresh you all day while you lie down on comfortable loungers.

Inside the villa, you will find a real Hobby Room with all the possible comforts and games, such as billiards, table tennis, table football, a giant screen like in the cinema and a professional kitchen, complete with a wood-burning oven for fantastic cooking dinners with friends. The villa consists of five double bedrooms and two bedrooms with single beds, each with views of the park.

Program

Enjoy a whole culinary weekend, from the homemade pasta course to the tasting local wines, from the 72-hour wood-fired leavening pizza to the basics to prepare an excellent barbecue among friends, and finally, also how to prepare Sunday brunch.

On this retreat, you will learn how to make homemade pasta, such as fettuccine with porcini mushrooms or ricotta and spacioli, how to organize and prepare a barbeque for your friends, how to recognize a good meat steak and how to prepare an excellent Sunday brunch at home with the few things available in your fridge.

All while spending two fantastic nights at Villa Elena, a location created to welcome groups of friends or team building to relax by the pool or in the fantastic living room complete with everything from billiards to table tennis. Seven suites and 20,000 square meters of park will make you enjoy a stay without sacrifice and full of surprises for an experience of total relaxation.

To welcome you and accompany you on this fantastic journey there will be the young Chef Federico, a creative and tenacious chef enhanced by the desire to always amaze his guests with fresh, seasonal dishes, with the passion to create new recipes by mixing local knowledge with tradition and the culture of its customers.

Thanks to the chef Iside de Cesare's school, mentor and inspiration of a kitchen that makes the guest the protagonist by offering a tailor-made experience, revisiting dishes of Italian tradition with the flavors and aromas of their land.

In love with bread-making and all the chemical reactions of leavening, his pizza is inspired by the Neapolitan school, light, high, crunchy but also very soft on the palate.
