Positive aspects of school
The instructor was great -- supportive, encouraging, fun, and personable. She made it fun and interesting to learn Italian. The group sizes were small (just 3 students and one instructor in my group) which was much better than learning in a large class. The other participants were friendly and the culture of the school was very positive. There weren't a lot of organized activities but students spontaneously self-organized for dinners, which is probably better than a forced arrangement anyway.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
The one-on-one lessons were great and worth the price. There is little or no signage for the school at the castle and the villa is hard to find so find out where you're going before you arrive.

Very good stay and quality teaching as it was 3 years ago. The school did not give us our level certificate at the end, is it normal?
