Experience Tours    

It's time to travel, learn and have fun!  Join us in Italy and jump to the next level!   

2024 New Experience Tours

in Calabria

The new tours are more than just Language immersive trips


They are designed to reinforce the language while experiencing the authentic culture of South of Italy through activities that allow us to connect at a human, emotional and spiritual level with the place.  

Learn how to make things, cook, paint and much more.  What better way to understand another culture!

Genuine food, Trekking in the woods, Yoga, Writing and Painting sessions, and more will improve your mental and physical wellness, as well as a concert, a film or a tasting followed by a conversation will really help you connect with locals.

So, join us in a medieval hamlet on the Ionian coast and enjoy the authentic Southern lifestyle.  


The place

Villa Stella is much more than a B&B, it is a unique place. It is on the edge of Torre di Ruggiero, a medieval hamlet, totally immersed in nature.  20' drive from the gorgeous beach of Soverato (Ionian coast); 50' drive from Pizzo; 70' from Lamezia Airport.  It is a beautiful house where you can spend time to detoxify from your work routine or you can join a small group of people to enjoy art/cultural activities.

Here, you can relax and feel inspired, eat natural and organic food (Km0) and feel free to express yourself through various art forms. 

A library with books and Italian DVDs is available to the guests.



The following tours are based on a full immersion programme during which you will stay in an independent room with private bathroom.

The rooms are a few minutes walking from the main house "Villa Stella" where you will go every day for meals and the activities with the group.
