Che peccato for us, but buone notizie for you if you’d like to learn Italian for a week in an idyllic Tuscan rural setting

Che peccato, what a pity, two more of the people who were coming on our unique, week-long Italian Language course have had to cancel for health reasons. So, we now have nine bookings on this course (and will definitely run it). We have three bedrooms available: the Uccello, Gentileschi and The Lippi Suite. That means we have room for three more participants, and their nonparticipating partners if they’d like to come. So that’s the good news, buone notizie. We would be delighted if you could join us for this unique, inspiring week where you learn more about the delightful Italian language in an idyllic setting in the heart of rural Tuscany.

Here’s what one guest had to say about last year’s course: “I had another wonderful week at the Watermill, enjoyed the same friendly hospitality and delicious food again. I now feel much more confident in speaking Italian and can understand a lot better. A big thank you to all.”

Soak up the atmosphere, soak up the sun… and soak up Italian!

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.

Learn Italian in the most natural and enjoyable way

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 another comment from a 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…”
