Learn to speak like a local in the beautiful Bologna, Italy

Buongiorno! Choose your language holiday in Italy’s foodie heartland. It’s the centre of an exceptional food-producing region, where some of Italy’s most famous produce is made, including tortellini, Parma ham, Parmesan, and balsamic vinegar. The city itself is a medieval beauty, housing the world’s oldest university, and attractive colonnaded streets.

Our base is in the peaceful hills south of Bologna, where, as well as learning Italian, you’ll relax and enjoy delicious Italian food and wine in stunning surroundings. When we venture out to Bologna and to Ravenna, you’ll be able to soak up the atmosphere, and test out your Italian in trattorias, food markets, shops, and perhaps a bar or two. Our host will always be on hand, in case you need any help.

Where you’re going to stay
Our villa is a beautifully restored large farmhouse, situated in rural Tredozio on top of the highest hill. Enjoy the peace and quiet and unforgettable views of the surrounding area and the Apennine hills. The sun rises from the Romagnole Apennines to warm up the large swimming pool and al fresco dining area, and sets behind the Tuscan Apennines. The hills stretch endlessly from the villa, and you can easily stroll on tracks around the villa, as well as simply relax with a drink in the large garden, gazing at the limitless view.
