Your accommodation at Il Borgo Residence in Caiano, transportation up to the Tuscan mountains, all meals and tuition are included in your attendance fee. A choice of wines and after-dinner digestifs can be purchased at your own expense.

Each apartment has its own kitchen-diner, bathroom, living room, bedroom and outdoor terrace with writing tables. All apartments can be shared, at a reduced price, if you attend the course with a friend who doesn’t mind the sofa-bed in the livingroom.

Il Borgo is an agriturismo – a family farm. All food served is zero kilometro, which means it is grown either at the farm or comes from farms less than a kilometre away.

Free Wi-fi is provided in every room.




Il Borgo in Caiano is surrounded by vast natural park lands.  For an active break after morning classes we often hike around the area’s extensive trails.  Or you can just relax in the sunshine around the hot spa and swimming pool.
