1970s pop with Lizzie Deane

Bijou accommodation

Traditional yet chic accommodation. From Mr and Mrs Smith Boutique collection.

Performance

Not to be missed! Sensational concert location for a 1970s pop performance.

Music director

There are no words to describe the wonderful Lizzie Deane. Modest, empathic, funny, talented… I could add another 100 superlatives, at least.

3-hour daily rehearsals

Three-hour, high octane rehearsal each morning

Included : Everything but flights

Accommodation, transfers, all meals, all tuition, concert promotion and organisation.

Hand-picked restaurants

Thoroughly researched eateries away from the tourists and with the locals

This is ground control to major house party!

Just imagine feeling like a Rocket Man (or woman) for 5 nights while you stay within an organic olive grove in the heart of Italy. Whether you’re a Sweet Caroline or a Maggie May, this holiday could be your Bridge Over Troubled Water.

If you’d love to hit those Wuthering Heights, now is your time to let your hair down and join our 1970s Italian House Party in May 2024.

Even if Your Mama Told You Not to Come, do you really want to miss out? I Can See Clearly Now, that Without You this event will be One Bad Apple. We all need some Seasons In The Sun, after all.

I mean, I’ll Be There. Nothing would keep me away. There Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.

Do you know, The First Time That Ever I Saw Your Face, I was on a Midnight Train to Georgia. It was a Love Train. The Loco-Motion was intense! Honestly, I was on Top Of The World.

I want to rekindle those feelings in Italy. I want to feel the Sunshine On My Shoulders. I don’t want to do any Kung Fu Fighting. I don’t want to Rock The Boat. I just want to be Close To You. I Want You Back. What do you think?

You not coming would be a Tragedy. I mean, I Will Survive, I’ll Pick Up The Pieces, but still, I’ll Miss You.

Come on, you’re the Disco Lady to my Disco Duck. Don’t Give Up On Us. Without your Heart Of Gold, You’ll break my Heart Of Glass.

Let’s Get It On!

Love an olive tree or two

A 17th-century farmhouse set within 12,000 olive trees, our dreamy accommodation, with its romantic views of the Spoleto Valley, is the perfect location.

Cloistered by high stone walls, Borgo della Marmotta is a collection of old agricultural buildings transformed into a bijou hotel. It’s all very eco-traditional. Buildings that once were granaries, pens, mills and sheepfolds have been lovingly reimagined using natural products and traditional methods.

It oozes effortless charm from the sympathetically restored terracotta tiles in the bedrooms to the designer fittings and polished cement floors in the chic bathrooms.

The gardens at Borgo della Marmotta are delightful. Punctuated by fragrant herbs, pots with lemon trees, and pergolas dripping with wisteria, they sit against a picture postcard scene of Umbrian hills rich in olive trees and vines. Lounging by the delightful swimming pool while sipping a crisp local Trebbiano Spoletino white wine is a must-do.

Neither flashy nor chintzy, Borgo della Marmotta serves up a quintessential slice of Italian paradise that is hard to beat. It’s all ours for a 5-night house party!

Experts

All of our experts are obviously outstanding, inspirational artists, however they’re also lovely human beings. Their priority will always be 100% on you and your development. They are an integral part of the week, so be prepared to make new friendships.

Friendship

You can expect to be among like-minded people who love to sing. You can expect a supportive, non-judgemental group and many laughs.

Nurtured and taken care of

Témi and Alex organize and run every Singing Holidays event. Unlike most holiday companies, we’re with you from first contact right through to our sad farewells at the end of your stay. There are no reps, no faceless office staff, no strangers picking you up from an airport. Just us.

Food and accommodation

Témi and Alex spend weeks recceing each holiday, so you can get the very best from your stay. Nothing is by chance — we check every restaurant, we eat every menu, we jump on every bed, we take a toothbrush and magnifying glass to every bathroom, skirting board and wardrobe. When you arrive, you can relax in the knowledge that we’ve well and truly done our homework.

Direct contact

From first encounter to said farewells at the end of your holiday, you’ll be in direct contact with either Alex or Témi. Singing Holidays has been running events in Italy and beyond since 2010, and one of our core values is to also keep things small and contained, so we can give you the best experience.

Insurance & data protection

Singing Holidays Ltd has full liability insurance cover with First Underwriting Ltd. We adhere to GDPR to protect your privacy and any data you submit via our website or sister website singingnest.com is secured with 128-bit SSL encryption.

Covid-19

Booking a holiday during a pandemic isn’t for the faint-hearted. However, if you book a Singing Holidays event, and then you are unable to travel due to mandatory country restrictions, then you will be eligible for a full refund (including any ‘non-refundable’ deposit payment).
