October Half-Term at Villa Lena

Autumn is just around the corner and the change of the season brings much to be excited about. Whilst the sun continues to shine in Tuscany throughout the season, the fall brings fresh bounty, milder temperatures and less crowds. What more could you ask for?

We’re fully prepared here for everything October has to offer; sun loungers for sunny days, and a heated pool for the cooler ones. Whatever the weather brings, we can guarantee a holiday to please all ages. In addition to our classic cooking workshops, wine tastings and truffle hunts, we have added a daily Kids Club to the schedule throughout the half-term holiday. Then why not sneak out to enjoy a group yoga session in our new light filled yoga studio whilst the children are occupied? Top off the trip with our annual spooky Halloween party!

Whats more, we also still have artists in residence throughout the month, who will be running regular creative workshops. Here’s what we have lined up for the whole of October…

 

BOTANICAL MEMORIES OF VILLA LENA WITH BLAD

BLAD are a duo from Denmark, who’s workshops will be all about creating botanical memoirs of Villa Lena through foraging, cyanotypes, flower crowns, natural print dying. Perfect fun for the whole family!
