On the weekend of 3rd February the newly restorated Villa San Rocco, Tuscany is running an Italian Language & Feasting weekend. There will be 3 hours a day (Sat/Sun) Italian language teaching, a casual tour of Lucca, walks in the forest (men may show off by wrestling wild boar), else an afternoon skiing pending a sudden flurry at nearby Abetone. INCLUDED are stylish ensuite accommodation, full Italian dinners on Friday and Saturday nights, breakfast each morning, evening aperitivi/winetasting, and transfers from Pisa airport.
Many of us can’t stand the Valentine’s circus, not least when inspection reveals there is no proven link between any of the martyrs from antiquity named ’Valentine’ and romantic flights of Eros. In fact, it was probably an invention of Chaucer’s, no doubt trying to get his leg over some lady in waiting in the late 14th Century court. Tch, poets...
Let us, as is said in Italy, kill two pigeons with one bean.
The price for a re-loving couple is £195. Just get yourselves here!
Pre-Valentine’s Shmalentines — educational, thoughtful, relaxing, and romantic if you want it. Only 5 rooms left. Homefire & candles are burning.
