A promise of new life

Our gardener and nature lover, Flavio Terenzoni has just sent me this picture he took of the nest of a blackcap warbler along the side of the river near the Watermill.

It looks like we can expect five more songbirds to add their voices to the wonderful dawn chorus we have at the Watermill each morning.

I think it’s a great symbol of the renewal of life as we know it at the Watermill. We are looking forward to opening up at last and making the final preparations for the guests on our creative courses towards the end of the year.

We’d love you to enjoy the Watermill as much as we do – and listen to the birds! Here’s one of them, a verzellino, a sarin, also snapped by Flavio.

The Watermill at Posara for painting, creative writing, knitting, and Italian language holidays/vacations/workshops, Tuscany, Italy.

Below you will first find details of our 2020 inspiring painting courses, followed by information on our creative writing and Italian language weeks. Please rest assured that if travel restrictions in your own country or in Italy mean that the course cannot run on these dates, or that appropriate flights are not available, we will postpone your course until 2021..

** By the way, the Watermill is renowned for its inspiring teaching, its beautiful setting, its delicious food and wine, and its warm and welcoming hospitality. We are also Cool and Green, even in the summer: all the bedrooms and public rooms have air conditioning, powered by our hidden array of photovoltaic panels, harnessing the sun’s energy to makes us self-sufficient in electricity generation. So you will enjoy Tuscan sun and a cool watermill!
