  • Our chef Mattia and his assistant Pia were a dream to work with. Creative, friendly, and the food was out of this world fantastic. One of the reasons we love to travel to Italy is for the amazing Culinary experience and our dinners with Terra Che Vive were some of the most exceptional.

    Ho trovato l'esperienza della visita in masseria con la preparazione dei prodotti caseari tipici molto coinvolgente. Una nota di elogio va alla guida Marco così come ad Umberto, che con pazienza e simpatia ci hanno mostrato dettagliatamente tutte le fasi della produzione casearia. Ottima la successiva degustazione dei salumi e latticini.

  • An absolutely wonderful experience! Our Italian host, Marco, was well spoken and beautifully informed. We have never thought of doing cheese making, however, this will be long remembered. Cheese makers, Umberto and Francesco, were delightful and made us feel “part of the team”. They encouraged us to be fully involved (with our hands) in every step. Our labors were rewarded with delicious cheeses to eat! Lunch also included local meats! A tremendous event!! Highly recommended!!!

    we had an amazing experience in our tour with Marco! He is very knowledgeable and we spend the morning seeing how to make cheese, pasta making class and visiting the farm - plus some delicious italian delicacies at the end! Marco was really patient and flexible and our two year old twins loved it as well. Furthermore, the staff at masseria dell'arco were also great. Would certainly recommend, and a very good price for value.
