Set on a beautiful organic olive farm, the visit to the museum, while small, was made fascinating by Alessandro's passion for the history and process of soap making. I now know more than I ever expected about soap!

Alessandro provides a very personalised tour of his soap museum and if you like you can make your own soap with him. It is a bit off the beaten track so best to phone/email ahead and he will be waiting for you when you arrive.
