"My wonderful week at Tenuta Linazza"

Our gracious hosts, Emilio and Clara De Matteis, along with their family support staff, were devoted to providing a wonderful experience for all guests, while providing flexibility for individual desires. They were all completely charming and accommodating. Since this area is their family home, they’re very knowledgeable about the history of Puglia and the most interesting places to visit and explore. We had offsite cooking lessons with local experts, a wine tasting and vineyard tour nearby, and several excursions to the many beautiful beach cities in Puglia, all with our private guide. Swimming and boating in the beautiful, clear Adriatic Sea were highlights. Our accommodations were new, clean and comfortable, with a private patio for spending quiet time and a lovely pool for sharing. The meals were delicious and focused on local crops and specialties. The week was amazing in so many ways. I’m writing this after several weeks of traveling to other places and I’m touched by my memories. Thank you Clara and Emilio. I’m sending hugs, Brenda

"We had a wonderful stay at Tenuta Linazza!"

Our hosts, Emilio and his wife Clara, could not have been more thoughtful, kind and attentive during our stay at the farm. It was like having our own private tour guides for our introduction to Puglia. We had great food and learned so much about the region. I felt like we were saying goodbye to family by the time we left for home.

"Paradise in Puglia"

This was one of my favorite trips of all time! I wanted to combine culinary experiences with outdoor adventures, and to see Puglia like a local. The olive farm is such a beautiful, peaceful escape; and Chef Emilo's meals were perfection. Each day after breakfast, we were escorted to a new town for a bit of history and sightseeing followed by alone time to beach, dine and shop. However, I didn't spend any time alone because my fellow travelers became like family in such a short time. They limit the group size to give you an intimate local experience. We visited, were educated and sampled local family run businesses: mozzarella makers, Castel di Salve winery, Benedetto Cavalieri durum wheat pasta, Maglio chocolates and a local pizzeria. We learned about the family's farm and how they make olive oil. I want to return during harvest season. Between touring and dinner there was time to relax and enjoy the pool. Another highlight for me was joining Chef Emilio in the kitchen to learn how to cook authentic Italian dishes. I felt at home and was sad to leave the family and their amazing hospitality. I highly recommend this trip if you're looking for an authentic Italian experience.
