Knitting and la Bella Vita Italiana
In response to suggestions from many of our knitting guests, we are delighted to announce another Watermill Knitting Retreat. It will run from Saturday 15 July to Saturday 22 July 2023. And, since there is no official tutor, we are offering a special blanket discount of £200 per person.
Instead of having a tutor, individual guests will bring their own projects to knit during the week. The rhythm of the week will be much the same as usual, with morning and afternoon sessions on the vine verandah or in the Watermill sitting room, where you will enjoy convivial like-minded company in the peaceful ambience of the Watermill.
And, of course, we will take you on outings to savour the beautiful unspoiled surroundings of the mill in the environmentally protected area of Lunigiana. Will take you to a nearby ancient village with its imposing 13th century castle, to market day in a nearby walled mediaeval town, to a tranquil monastery where you can knit in the shady cloisters or the enchanting gardens, to a 1000-year-old hilltop village with stunning views of the Apuan Alps, the marble mountains of Carrara. And we’ll organise an excursion for you to the beautiful Ligurian fishing villages of the Cinque Terre or to the quintessential ward Italian city of Lucca.
Add to that the wonderful food, both at the Watermill and at typical local Italian restaurants and we think this will be a week to remember. And don’t forget that discount of £200 per person.
