What you'll do

I will wait for you in my Antico Borgo in the countryside 16 KM from the city of Olbia, where upon arrival I will show you the property consisting of nine Stazzi (typical houses of the area), dating back to 1700. We will offer you a welcome tasting with our best products homemade. A Sardinian breakfast if in the morning or a Sardinian aperitif if in the evening in our wine cellar. Then we will prepare an ancient pasta, teaching the secrets of the processing and embroidery of pasta, all in an exclusive place where it will be like going back in time. Ancient utensils and typical kitchen tools will be displayed and used. We will cook for you the pasta that you have prepared and that you will taste together with our homemade wine and a selection of products offered by us, including our cheeses and our bread.
Each participant will receive the certificate of participation issued by our Educational Farm with procedure and recipe to prepare the dish in your homes. In addition we will give you a bag of organic Sardinian semolina flour, making you bring home the flavors of our land.

Meet your host, Simonetta

Host on Airbnb since 2015

  • Identity verified
I am a teacher of traditional cuisine and the owner of a wonderful old village where the Educational Farm of my farm called ARIMANI was born; Arimani in our dialect means yesterday, because my work and everything I teach is aimed at handing down and showing the true identity cuisine of Sardinia (the ancient cuisine, that of yesterday). With my family we teach the art of making cheese, pasta and desserts, as my grandparents taught us. Among the most beautiful, ancient and rare works of the island.

Where you'll be

I will take you to an Ancient Village near Olbia, consisting of nine Stazzi Galluresi (typical houses of the '700), with a cellar to taste our wine, a shop and a small museum on Sardinian arts, with a park, a river and a beautiful vegetation around that smells of Balsamic.

Soirée topissime à apprendre à faire des pâtes sardes mais pas seulement ! Simonetta est passionnée par la transmission des traditions et par son île et cela se ressent. Elle nous a raconté des anecdotes mais aussi fait goûter des produits typiques sardes. De plus elle cuisine délicieusement bien ! Nous avons passé une soirée "entre amis" et nous sommes même restés plus longtemps que prévu. Je recommande vivement l'expérience si vous voulez passer une soirée typique avec une femme pleine de vie et généreuse !

I have never experienced such hospitality and authenticity in a cooking experience. Simonetta went above and beyond to make us feel welcome in her home, and we left feeling like we’d not only learned a new skill, but really had quality time with the locals, learning about Sardinian culture. From the truly mouthwatering food (7 courses including the pasta we made), to the expert teaching, to the tour around the old village and home, to the lovely wine made by Simonetta’s husband and father who we also spent time with, it was a fantastic experience - worth WAY more than we paid for it.

Really great experience. We decided to spontaneously do this on a rainy day and ended up having an amazing time! The place is located in the mountains about half an hour drive from olbia. Beautiful setting and an enriching cultural experience. Simonetta was truly friendly and welcomed us warmly to her family home. She taught us a great but easy Pasta Rezept that we went off to do by our selves only a few days later. Thanks again!
