Due to cancellations, we now have two free spaces on our inspiring Italian Language week at the Watermill this May. We still have 11 people booked in for this week, one of whom is a non-participating partner, but now the Uccello and Gentileschi bedrooms are suddenly free.

Last year we had a rocambolesco time with our new tutor Gulia Balestri. Here’s what one guest had to say: “I had another wonderful week at the Watermill, enjoyed the same friendly hospitality and delicious food again. Giulia coped admirably with the diverse abilities, aspirations and interests of the group and we all worked hard together. I now feel much more confident in speaking Italian and can understand a lot better. A big thank you to all.”

Francesca has been travelling all over the world in the last few years but is now back in her native Lunigiana and will be with us for another inspiring language course. You can join her, soaking up Italian and enjoying la bella vita Italiana from Saturday, 11 May to Saturday, 18 May 2019.

 

This truly is a ‘course with a difference’. Not only are there formal lessons on the vine verandah (some 20 hours in the week), but we also make trips and excursions to savour the natural beauty of Lunigiana, the area around the mill, to explore its history and culture, to sample its traditional foods – and above all, to meet the people, speak Italian, and practise what you’ve learned. The Watermill has teamed up again with the prestigious language school Langues Services in Florence to design a week in which people can learn Italian in the most natural and enjoyable way. Your immersion into the language and culture of real Italians will be customised for you, to suit your curiosity and your interests, helping you to treasure everything you learn and make it a seamless part of who you are.

She loves meeting people of all ages and cultures. She is also a nature lover and a cognoscente of Lunigiana, the land of her forefathers, where she was raised. This beautiful area of Tuscany surrounds the Watermill. Francesca has an artistic background and has a passion for the figurative and graphic arts, particularly from the Renaissance period and from prehistory; this love adds a further dimension to her teaching.

Here’s a comment from another guest on last year’s course: “Our teacher was brilliant and the lessons were always engaging, and all the other staff were remarkable in their efforts to make the week so perfect. I enjoyed every second. I loved the tranquillity and the natural beauty of the river as well as the wonderful food and convivial company…”

To recap, our inspiring Italian language course will run from 11-18 May 2019To learn more, please click here. It’s certainly rocambolesco!
