Tuscany Collaboration Bodes Well For Kids

A collaboration between Tuscany’s Villa Lena and UK-based mentoring company, Oppidan Education, has resulted in a great opportunity for youngsters this October half-term.

At the time of writing Italy was one of a handful of ‘airbridge’ destinations still in place and not requiring quarantine upon return to the UK.

So, with a bit of decent weather thrown in, Villa Lena in Tuscany has more reasons than most to look attractive this month: good weather and perfect for families with hard-to-entertain kids in tow!
This year it is hosting a special programme of inspiring, dynamic and educational activities ideal for kids of all ages, with the introduction of their Oppidan Camp from 26th – 30th October 2020.

Villa Lena has teamed up with Oppidan Education to create an exciting and educational activity camp in line with Oppidan’s main goal to take learning outside the classroom, with each day providing a unique programme of games, challenges and mentoring.

Situated in the rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside, Villa Lena is a one-of-a-kind agriturismo destination that combines holiday accommodation, a farm-to-table restaurant and a not-for-profit art foundation. Creativity is at the heart of Villa Lena, with families being offered a unique, dynamic and sun-filled autumnal holiday experience.

Meanwhile, parents can take full-advantage of all that Villa Lena has to offer, with their own programme of activities that seamlessly capture an authentic and immersive Italian experience.

From olive oil tastings and cooking workshops to guided hikes and outdoor yoga, there are endless opportunities for all guests to relax and re-centre.
