We will discount from your holiday cost up to £ 200 per person based on your airline receipt. Please note that we do not discount cost for booking via third parties (i.e. extra fees that you might incur when booking via an agent rather than directly with the airline),reserving particular seats, priority boarding, food and any other items (other than a standard seat and up to 23Kg hold luggage per person) even if the total cost for including these is less than £ 200. Only if allowed free of charge by the airline of your choice, you might also bring with you 1 cabin trolley bag (if your airline does not offer this facility free of charge you will have to pay for it and we won’t credit it back to you). Please note that we can only refund up to the £ 200 maximum per person the actual cost of flights as published by the airline at the time of booking, if you make mistakes with your booking resulting in higher prices, we won't refund any difference in prices arising from mistakes made during flight booking. A number of airlines (such as BA, Easy Jet, Ryanair, JET2.com and others) are showing on their website flights to Pisa airport (about 50 minutes transfer to our Tuscan location) from various UK airports. For your convenience, we have listed below a non-exhaustive list, in no particular order, of current flights to Pisa:

Free coach transfers from Pisa Airport to the hotel and vice versa will coincide with the following flights ONLY (all times expressed in 24-hour clock):

1. Easy Jet. Depart Gatwick Saturday 4 June 2022 at 06.00, arrive Pisa at 09.10 ----- Depart Pisa Saturday 11 June 2022 at 09.45, arrive Gatwick at 11.00

If you have difficulties booking your flights because you are not very practical with computers, feel free to call us and we’ll do the booking on your behalf using your own bank card.

The 'up to £ 200' discount offer is applicable also if you book flights not listed above, travel by car or other means. If you book a different flight from those listed above and/or arrive at the airport at different times, you can still use free of charge any of the coaches for the above flights (arrival and/or departure), providing you let us know by 1st February 2022 and providing you arrive in time to board coaches that will be departing at times related to the above listed flights. Otherwise, you will be responsible to arrange and pay for your transfers without receiving refunds or credits from JiveTime. However, there are cheap connections, see HERE via bus/train between Pisa and San Vincenzo, which is about 3.7 Km away from the resort and normally served by public transport/taxi, see HERE. Likewise, if you book a flight for which we subtract the flight cost from your holiday balance, we will not subsequently subtract/refund further from your holiday balance if you cancel that original flight in order to book a more expensive flight UNLESS PREVIOUSLY APPROVED BY US FOR OPERATIONAL REASONS ONLY. In such circumnstance you would be responsible to pay the flight difference even if the max £ 200 allowance has not been fully used.

You can also use our free transfers (subject to the same above rules) even if you decide to arrive or depart Italy on different days or times. For example, if you decide to arrive a few days earlier you could use one of the transfers on the 5th of June. The same applies if you decide to leave a few days later, in which case you can use the agreed booked transfer coach to leave the hotel and travel to the airport, from there you might decide to go to Pisa, Florence, or somewhere else for a few days. Did you know that Italy amounts to 0.5% of the entire earth’s surface and that in this 0.5% there is 70% of the world artistic and physical heritage? Because of this, there is no reason for you to arrive on the 5th of June or depart on the 12th, indeed, we encourage you to consider arriving in Italy days earlier or leave days later, as there is so much to visit in that region that this would be an excellent opportunity to increase your stay before, after, or both, the start and end of our jive holiday. From Pisa’s airport you could easily get to and stay in a number of well-known destinations, such as Pisa itself, Florence etcetera, as there are a number of good connecting links from the airport. The 5th and the 12th of June 2021 represent the start and the end of our jive holiday, but this does not necessarily need to be the start and the end of your holiday.

Our aim is to organise a cultural holiday to Italy with some time spent on excursions away from the Hotel to see places. You will have time to yourself to spend relaxing in the Hotel, maybe by the pool or by exploring the nearby places at your own pace. There will be evening dance workshops and freestyle dancing every night until late. Preferably, bookings should be gender balanced. Non gender balanced bookings will be considered depending on how many people of either gender have already booked. Please note that we reserve the right to change the programme at our own descretion if the need arises at any time.
