6 Nights | 5 Rounds of Golf | 3 Wine Tastings | 5 Cooking Classes | And much more…

The Nesbitt party recently took a golf vacation with PerryGolf to Lake Como, Italy that encompassed far more than just golf alone. Enjoy the slideshow of pictures above as they showcase stems and pieces of the Italian cooking classes the group took. The golf vacation – “Golf, Cooking and Wine Tasting on Lake Como, Italy” is one the most popular golf trips our clients enjoy to Italy.

The Chef’s Garden at Villa d’Este

I have previously blogged that I believe when on travel to Italy, a cooking class must be top of the list.  If you are staying at Villa d’Este you can attend The Chef’s Garden which is located on the panoramic hillside leading to the Statue of Hercules and Lica.  Cooking lessons, using fresh ingredients from the garden, are available on request; and after your lesson, a wine tasting is recommended to finish off your evening!

Villa d’Este – Italy

One of our most popular hotels in Italy has to be Villa d’Este; the hotel is set on the shores of Lake Como and more than deserves the many awards it has received over the years – the most recent being presented by Forbes Traveler 400 in 2009 for World’s Best Hotel.

The main building was built in 1568 as the summer residence of Cardinal Tolomeo Gallio and was then changed to a luxurious hotel in 1783.  Villa d’Este has 153 bedrooms and with several dining outlets you are spoiled for choice.  It is also in an easily accessible location, only 60 minutes away from Milano Malpensa Airport!
