IN COLLABORATION WITH THE RESTAURANT WE WILL PROPOSE DAILY MENUS, SO THAT THOSE WHO HAVE DIETARY NEEDS CAN LET US KNOW AT THE TIME OF BOOKING.
ALSO AT THE TIME OF BOOKING THE NUMBER OF NIGHTS OF ACCOMODATION AND MEALS REQUIRED MUST BE INDICATED.

If you are not coming by car you will need to get to Pescara by the Wednesday 27th August. From there I will organise us into cars or a minibus (we will share the cost, and it should be no more than maybe 20 euros each) to go up to Borrello, (and the same to come back of course.) The drive is about an hour. Please keep us informed of your travel arrangements and , if possible, let us know before you book your ticket, about which flight you are thinking of arriving on. This will greatly help us to organise the transport from Pescara to Borrello and back.
It would be good if we could set out for Borrello from Pescara early afternoon or soon after on the Wednesday, in order to get well settled in.
Sometimes it is convenient to get to Pescara the day before (Tuesday) and have a day at the seaside before going on to the course.

There is no effective regular public transport link between Borrello and the rest of the World.

Pescara has an airport, a railway station, and regular direct coach links with both Rome airports.

Level will be mixed and participants will be from different backgrounds.

I teach in two languages: English and Italian.

I like to do a mix of masterclass and workshop so there will be individual attention and group tuition.
The course will finish on Sunday at about 18.00. It is hoped to conclude with a jam session on the Sunday evening after dinner, accompanied by our “house band” of local musicians. This has been very successful in recent years.
Most people stay that evening in Borrello and depart Monday morning, but some will choose to depart immediately.
During the course there will also be concerts which as yet have to be confirmed.
There may also be other events in Borrello and neighbouring towns.
For those who haven’t seen it, a visit to Italy’s highest natural waterfall is strongly recommended- this is just ten minutes walk from Borrello.
Looking forward to seeing you there!

IN MARCH WE WILL PRODUCE A REGISTRATION FORM TO BE FILLED IN.
IN THE MEANTIME, THOSE INTERESTED SHOULD CONTACT ME AT
