Lessons take place at the Agriturismo ‘Poderino S. Cristoforo’ in Lajatico, in the middle of the countryside.
In Lajatico, nature is king and the landscape around us with the rolling hills, fields, vineyards and olive groves makes us melt and relax.
In a short time we are on the dunes and sandy beaches of the Etruscan coast, as well as the most beautiful and famous art cities of Tuscany such as Volterra, Pisa, Florence, Siena, San Gimignano. Depending on the weather and mood, we explore the area on an easy mountain hike or enjoy an authentic and professional guided tour through a vineyard or olive grove very close to the winery of Sting!
‘Poderino S. Cristoforo’ is family-run, quiet and detached with restaurant, rooms, 2 seminar rooms, pool and a huge garden with many retreats. To really relax, there is wifi, but no TV.
