What do they say about us?

A truly unique experience. The most personalized group classes you will ever find. I had by far the lowest level of Italian in the class but was never made to feel it. Emma is a fantastically talented teacher allowing each of her students to feel comfortable but challenged

Anna, Colchester

“Pian di Marte Ospitalità Rurale is perched on a hillside overlooking the green Niccone Valley. The rooms here are simply furnished but more than comfortable. Lirio and Giovanna are very helpful and friendly. The food was delicious every day!”

Chi siamo/Who we are

Emma and Ezio at Oakfield Campo delle querce Umbria

Ciao! We’re Emma and Ezio! We met in Bergamo, where Ezio comes from and Emma had been working as a Business English Trainer and Director of Studies since 1993. In 2006 we moved to Barcelona but always spend the summer months and any other holidays at our Italian home: Campo delle Querce (Oakfield), Umbria. This was a ruin which Emma’s family bought in 1999 and then completely restored. Since 2015, we have been welcoming people here on our language holidays to learn Italian and to enjoy the peace and quiet of the green heart of Italy. Emma is the main teacher for all the courses, while Ezio will tell you more about Italian culture and traditions. He will also join us on the excursions and enjoy mealtime conversations with you.

We share a love of good food and good wine and look forward to sharing this Italian experience with you. A presto!
