Italian Cooking Holidays in Amalfi

Please note that we have no holidays in Amalfi planned for 2024

The Amalfi Coast is one of Italy’s top destinations and it is a firm favourite with Flavours’ guests. Stretching about 50 km along the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula, the Amalfi Coast has the most breathtaking scenery and views to die for.

A meandering coastal road is flanked with lemon groves and whitewashed villas to one side and sheer cliffs that drop down to a dazzling blue sea on the other. Your cookery holiday will be greatly inspired by this region’s superbly fresh ingredients, like San Marzano tomatoes from the vine and intensely aromatic lemons, its tasty seafood and of course, pizza.

The fun and camaraderie with staff and other guests was fantastic, not to mention the views! Our cook Rosa and hostess Antonella were delightful and worked tirelessly to make it a good holiday. They were also wonderful company.

Villa Accommodation

Terraced into the sides of the cliffs, our villas in Amalfi offer breathtaking views of the dramatic coastline. All have extensive outdoor terraces, perfect for cooking lessons and long lunches al fresco, and spacious pools and sunbathing areas. Whether picking lemons directly from the lemon groves in the grounds of the villa, relaxing by the pool, or enjoying an aperitivo on the clifftop terraces, our Amalfi villas offer the perfect spot for a week of seaside relaxation. Please bear in mind that given their cliffside locations, our Amalfi Coast villas do have a considerable number of steps.
