What a Fantastic Experience!!! We were on a Sicily tour with several others. Louisa and her team of 3 ladies could not have made us feel more welcome. To spend an afternoon in Louisa’s home was like visiting old friends. The meal was absolutely AMAZING! The atmosphere was Sicilian perfect! It was absolutely a highlight of the trip and can only hope we will return to her villa someday and stay longer. An afternoon that we will always remember!!! Paula and Luigi Leonette

Cooking class in Taromina This was an amazing evening of fun and authentic Italian cooking. Everyone was so welcoming and the ambience of being in Louisa’s home was top notch. I highly recommend this experience and I am 100% Italian.

A Delicious Taste of Taormina! Our cooking class at Villa Britannia was among the truly memorable highlights of our visit to Taormina. We received a warm welcome from Louisa who immediately made us feel at home in her lovely villa. We enjoyed beautiful views over Taormina as wonderful music was played, delicious cheeses were served and the prosecco flowed. We learned how to prepare arancini, fresh pasta and veal involtini in Louisa's well-equipped kitchen. Subsequently, we enjoyed our meal preparations along with fine wine pairings on the villa's beautiful terrace. The evening was an excellent lesson in Sicilian cooking thanks to the guidance and instruction of Louisa and her talented team. We highly recommend the Villa Britannia cooking class!

Culinary Delight The highlight of our time in Toarmina was the Villa Britannia cooking class. Louisa’s crew made the preparations of our meal effortless. The instructions given make me feel confident that I too can make a traditional Sicilian meal. The overall atmosphere of the Villa is warm and inviting as was our hostess, Louisa. Don’t miss this exceptional culinary delight while in Toarmina..

Absolute must do traditional Sicilian experience!!! We visited Villa Britannia for a private family cooking class. I had researched a lot online to find something not only suitable for children, but that would also give us a traditional Sicilian experience, rather than a ‘restaurant’ cooking class. Louisa and her team did not disappoint. From the minute we arrived, we felt like we were apart of a family lunch, rather than a strangers home. Louisa was absolutely incredible, explaining everything so well, and making sure our children had fun and we’re involved always. The food was amazing. We all walked away saying it was the absolute highlight of our trip. We could not recommend it enough for families, couples, groups wanting a real Sicilian cooking experience. As always, the best part was meeting Louisa, and hearing about her families past and connection to the land that we were on. An absolute must do! And will be a reason to return to Taormina. Grazie Louisa!

Amazing Experience We were so fortunate to participate in this amazing experience. Louisa was wonderful to correspond with prior to our dinner and it only got better from there. We were greeted at her B&B with a lovely bottle of bubbles and some time to acclimate to the house and kitchen. Even though we were there during Italy's heat wave, the kitchen is air-conditioned and the porch had a lovely breeze. All 12 of us (ages 75 - 14) thought this was one of the highlights of the trip. The food, drinks, and atmosphere were all sublime. Learning a little bit of the history of the property was so interesting as well (Truman Capote was a guest). All in all, I would give this 10 stars!

A most perfect night! One of the highlights of our 12 day family trip was the cooking class we took at Villa Britannia. It was an absolute blast! The host and her helpers were great teachers. We were welcomed into this beautiful home as if we were family. We laughed, we learned, we ate and we drank! The villa is an amazing piece of history, it's cozy, but still roomy enough for the 12 of us to wander off and explore. In our group we had 3 kids under 15 (6 total) and they all participated and enjoyed it as well. Our next visit would definitely include another night at Villa Britannia. Thank you for having us Louisa!

Fantastic Cooking Class with a Superb Hostess You could not ask for a more fantastic host than Louisa. She makes Villa Britannia seem like your home away from home even if you are only there for a few hours. The cooking class was engaging and used high quality ingredients. It was both practical and fun. Even our 18 year old son got drawn in and actively participated in the class. Definitely a great activity for the whole family.
