Our accommodations for the week will be at Il Leccio, an agriturismo country house in the enchanting hills of the Chianti Classico region, 1/2 hour south of Florence. There is a swimming pool with magnificent views of the Tuscan vineyards and olive groves. All bedrooms have private baths. Breakfast will be served each morning.
There will be 5 mornings of tennis, Monday through Friday. After a warm up, participants will be divided into groups by ability. Each day, a different stroke will be highlighted and there will be ample time for round robins. At the end of the week, there will be round robins with members of the club.
The head pros at the Club are Simone and Pier Francesco Restelli. They have taught for the over 20 years in Italy and internationally. They are also very involved in competing on the Italian Tennis Tour Circuit.
Over the years, they have also achieved the teaching level of ” Maestro Nationale”, one of the highest levels of instruction in Italy. They look forward to working with you throughout the week.
In addition to the tennis instruction, there will be a trip to one of Italy’s most prestigious vineyards for wine tasting and lunch, along with visits to producers of olive oil and terracotta. There will also be afternoon excursions to various cities and hill towns such as Siena, Florence, San Gimignano and Greve in Chianti, with ample time for shopping and exploring.
