  • Great experience. I asked if we can tailor a class for my toddler and they did a great job. I highly recommend the cooking class with Gaetano. I couldn't give Gaetano enough praises for how fun and enjoyable he made the experience.

  • We visited a cheese farm producing mozzarella and buratta, but also many other types of cheese. We were able to see the cows, the milking process, the making of mozzarella and buratta and taste local cheeses and ham at the end of the visit. Giuseppe, the owner of the farm and the tour guide was very friendly and passionate about his work. An amazing experience, we highly recommend!

    Passeggiata di due ore su cavallo. A partire dalla prenotazione fino alla fine dell'esperienza abbiamo ricevuto un servizio eccellente, comunicazione ed elasticità nel fornire l'esperienza di livello altissimo. La professionalità, la velocità e la gentilezza di Marco hanno reso l'organizzazione dell'esperienza assolutamente immediata. Arrivati al maneggio il titolare ci ha spiegato perfettamente cosa avremmo fatto. Segue una passeggiata bellissima in uliveti, campagna e in riva al mare. Ti insegnano le basi per portare il cavallo e fare in modo che tu ti senta in sintonia con lui. I cavalli sono dolcissimi, super puliti e regalano un'esperienza assolutamente piacevole. Lo consiglio a tutti e consiglio anche di affidarsi totalmente a "Terra Che Vive" per avere un servizio impeccabile.

    Located within the walls of a traditional Trulli home, we enjoyed the wine tasting which was accompanied by several local cheeses, various sausages and homemade preserves presented by the owner couple. The tour included a look at the wine making premises and operations and a very informative presentation of the area wines by the proprietor, Marcus, himself. Highly recommend this opportunity!
