“We loved every moment at the “finca.” Clive & Maki were congenial, hospitable, and knowledgeable. The tours to Cordoba and the olive oil factory were interesting, and the cooking was fun and helpful, even to two “old hands” in the kitchen. The accommodations were rustic but appropriate, and the location provided a delightful opportunity to enjoy and experience rural Spain.” – Cheryl G. of Illinois

“The cooking classes were well planned and geared to our interest and ability level. Clive is a wealth of knowledge, which he obviously enjoys sharing. He is a natural teacher. They are both a true delight to be around, have a passion for their area, and are eager to pass on thieir knowledge and the love of their home. We can’t praise Maki and Clive enough. We felt totally spoiled and looked after the entire time we were there. They are amazing people.” – Sharon C. of Oregon
