Tuscany: Write, Travel, Transform & Eat slideshow logo
  Journey to sun-soaked Tuscany for a ten-day retreat at a majestic 15th century estate seated on the rolling hills of the Italian countryside. Our Villa is a vineyard and olive farm ideal for relaxing and exploring the cultural wonders of a region celebrated for its history and food. Writing and yoga will be at the heart of the retreat and will help us bond as a group.

This sensually rich vacation includes sumptuous meals, an olive oil tour, truffle hunting, a wine tasting tour at rock and roll icon Sting's villa, an Italian cooking class, and a day trip to Lucca with its well-preserved renaissance walls and cobblestone streets. An optional four-day tour of Florence will provide a unique, intimate experience of this magical city.

Spouses and non-writing friends are welcome to join us. Beginners at writing and yoga are welcome. An optional four-day tour of Florence will provide a unique, intimate experience of this magical city.

“So often a webpage prints a picture of perfection, but Villa Bonsi was even more beautiful that the beautiful pictures on the website. This trip provided more than I expected on every level.”

—Lucie Eggleston

"Laura calls herself a writing teacher, but writing is just the vehicle. What she really teaches is transformation."

--Bonnie Harris

“I’d absolutely recommend this trip. It has everything: creativity, time, exercise, education, great food at an outdoor table in the twilight, and the chance to get to know your neighbor.”

—Toni Taylor
