Are you looking for a creative holiday? Would you like to discover your owncreativity during your vacation? What about moving and relaxing in a dance workshop? Are you tempted to get to know the secrets of Umbrian and Tuscan cuisine? Or to enjoy a hiking and wellness week or to pick your own olive oil?

Villa La Rogaia offers a wide range of classes in spring and autumn, such as painting course, watercolour course, sculpting course, cooking school, Argentine Tango and Salsa workshops, guided walks, wellness programme and creative writing classes. Artists from different backgrounds meet at Villa La Rogaia to explore new ideas. Class participants are inevitably inspired by Italy‘s wealth of culture and history. The spacious landscape and villa lend to introspection while also being a relaxing environment in which to get to know the other participants.

The classes take place at Villa La Rogaia, an outstanding old Umbrian country house with many gardens. It is situated near Lake Trasimeno between Rome and Florence. Participants stay in individually crafted double or single rooms (shared bathroom for two bedrooms) or in holiday apartments (for two persons), partly at the village of Castel Rigone at 4 km distance from La Rogaia.

Argentine Tango: the La Rogaia dance workshops will make you move in harmony.

Classes will be held inside or outside on the big terrace or in the garden. Dancing and cooking classes will last for about three to four hours a day, all other courses for six hours a day, allowing for plenty of time to enjoy the surroundings of the villa and to go for trips to the nearby lake or towns. The number of participants is limited to 10 to 18 persons per class. The instruction language is, depending on the instructor, English, German or Italian with English translation on request.

We can arrange for the group the following trips (not included in the price):

  • Art historical excursions, e.g. to Arezzo, Assisi or Perugia
  • Wine tasting in famous Umbrian wineries
  • Truffle hunt and truffle tasting
