Description

Castello di Potentino is delighted to announce the very first Potentino Bookclub Digital Detox Reading Week an author-guided week of reading, walking, eating, sleeping, talking, drinking and NO SCREENS (unless we choose to show a film on a full-size one, for watching sociably).
Park your devices, cut off from demands, relax your mind, and recapture what it is like to have your brain to yourself.

For communal reading this first Bookclub Week will offer one of a choice of Potentino-related writers: Raymond Chandler, Iris Origo or Graham Greene plus Potentino’s in-house author Louisa Young, who will guide the week. In addition of course guests are free to read whatever they like, and to browse Potentino’s glorious libraries.

Further Potentino Bookclub activities will include the Digital Detox Writing Week, which will be guided and taught by leading authors who are also experienced teachers of creative writing. If what you need is a week in Tuscan heaven to bring your novel or memoir to life — to start it, to finish it, to give it some dedicated time and expert professional support — watch this space.

Fees include:
- Transfers to and from Pisa Airport (although you may prefer to hire a car so that you can visit the local countryside).
- All meals and wine.
- A wine tasting with winemaker Charlotte Horton of the castle's wines.
- A trip to La Foce to look at writer Iris Origo's beautiful garden with lunch and an oil tasting at Chiarentana with Donata Origo.
