I was there 4 weeks in August and there was only 2-5 students in every class. I have been to 3 other schools and it was normal there to have 10-13 students in every class. Few students in the classes and at the school in general, made us into a little family with good friendships.

I signed up for a cooking course that was supposed to be with a "chef". Partly it was substandard (absolutely no " chef") and also was the way too expensive for what you got (160 euro) Shameless!

Did not participate in any leisure activities as I was in Alghero with my husband.
Other comments
The two "cooking evenings" were not satisfactory for me. For instance, there were no recipes, the cook was speaking very quickly and also the value for money seemed inappropriate to me.

The school is very small and, at times, may be incapable of catering for all ability levels if, for example, there are several absolute beginners and one more advanced
