Five years ago while staying in Sorrento we had a delicious lunch at Fattoria Teranova and we decided then that on our next trip (our fourth) to Italy we would stay at the farm. Our three day stay was the highlight of our vacation.
The Ruoppo family, Luigi, Francesca and Roberto are so passionate about everything they offer at their agritourismo. The location is superb, the accomodation comfortable, service is excellent and the food 'to die for'. We would suggest their half-board booking for two reasons: you will not get a better meal in Italy and after dinner and wine in Sorrento it would be a most challenging drive back (nighttime, hills, switchbacks etc) to the farm.
Francesca operates a hands-on cooking school - I learned to make a complete dinner which my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed. I am now going to make the entire meal for my family here in Canada! She also offers a Pizza School for groups - they learn to make the pizza and then eat it!
Best of all is that the Fattoria Teranova is a real working farm with resident dogs and chickens and other animals. The produce you eat at lunch and dinner will have been picked that day.They also make products that you can buy at the farm or buy at their shop just off the main square in Sorrento.
We walked to St. Agata, about 2km, where we caught the bus to Sorrento and from there trains and busses are available to all the major tourist attractions.
And speaking of tourists - we were at the farm just before Easter when hordes of tourists were descending on Sorrento - the farm was a quiet, peaceful haven high above the Mediterranean away from the crowds!
As we were arriving at night we asked for help booking a driver to pick us up at Naples Airport and the farm booked the wonderful, young and enthusiastic Carlo - he is not only an excellent driver but also very amusing.
