Come and join us here in rural Tuscany where our picturesque getaway awaits you.


Why not try traditional long bow archery with a skilled and patient local Englishman. This can be arranged in the garden, especially for larger groups, or you may wish to travel to the tutors’ home nearby (approx. 30mins drive) to join a small class with others.

Traditionally the finest long bows were crafted from Italian yew wood, renowned for its strength and flexibility (bounce). Regrettably there are now so few yews remaining that this is no longer the case, so I personally take great delight in the idea of archery in the garden with a view of our ancient yew tree.
