Cooking Holiday in Venice

59 Guest Reviews

Spending a long weekend in Venice in the Spring is a wonderful idea at the best of times but add in the chance to learn to cook like an Italian by a handpicked local chef, taste the region’s finest prosecco on a vineyard visit and relax in a beautifully restored Venetian villa and you really are experiencing a taste of La Dolce Vita.

No Single Supplement

A room to yourself. We never charge a single room supplement.

Book with Confidence

Flexibility and peace of mind for our guests with their holiday booking.

It is the informality of this exclusive holiday that makes it so special, with small groups of no more than 10 for the hands-on classes that take place in the villa itself, and plenty of time to explore the canals, bacari and hidden corners of one of the great European cities. You will be staying throughout at the historic Villa Domenica, which dates back to 1611 and is set in beautiful grounds with a sculpture garden, tennis court and swimming pool.

During your two cookery tutorials you will learn to cook perfect pasta dishes and other local recipes – such as sarde in saor, and tiramisu – under the watchful eye of the chefs, who will also cook your evening meals. There will also be ample time and opportunity to explore Venice – where you can marvel at the Basilica San Marco, take in the Rialto food markets and enjoy lunch in a typical bacaro – and to sample some of the region’s best wines, including an exclusive tasting of the finest authentic prosecco from a nearby vineyard.

What’s more, there is no single supplement to pay – so whether you are a couple, friends or travelling solo this is the perfect gourmet break.
