- Point101 Holidays cuts price of photography break to Abruzzo -

If you’re feeling the pinch but still want a summer break with a difference, Point101 Holidays is slashing £100 off the price of places on its flagship photography trip to Abruzzo, Italy.

The holiday takes place from 10-14 July 2008 and is the perfect getaway if you’re looking for something more challenging than a simple summer city break or lazy beach retreat. You’ll spend four nights spent in the remote, mountainous region of Abruzzo – often called the forgotten Tuscany, this relatively unexplored expanse of Italy is home to three national parks, beautiful hilltop fortress towns, snowy mountain peaks and white sand beaches. You’ll stay at the hotel Santo Stefano di Sessanio for two nights, an ancient town dating back to the 15th century which was practically deserted until it underwent a full restoration around ten years ago, which turned the entire town into a hotel. This unique venue boasts a high-end mix of traditionally sourced materials, luxurious technology and contemporary fittings. This is followed by two nights in a more traditional family-run Italian hotel in the medieval town of Torricella.

Point101 Holidays offer guests the chance to experience the magical scenery of Abruzzo through an artistic encounter, enabling them to soak up culture and sites whilst enjoying expert photography tuition from two talented professionals. Designed for photographers of all levels, the holidays teach guests the necessary skills to get the most out of their digital SLR and to become a more confident photographer. Important aspects such as composition, exposure, perspective, subject matter and lighting are all covered and, by prior arrangement, guests can even hire camera equipment if they don’t have their own.

Point101 Holidays’ trip to Abruzzo on 10-14 July now costs just £649 per person and includes all expert photography tuition, luxury accommodation, excursions, local guides and most meals and drinks (excludes flights). There are no single person supplements so the holidays are also ideal for independent/single travellers. The holiday is available to book now and places are limited – to book, visit or call 020 7241 1113.


Notes to editors:


Flights are not included as the destinations are serviced by low cost airlines and prices fluctuate dramatically depending on when the seats are booked. Guests can therefore source their own flights or ask Point101 Holidays to assist with this at the time of booking the holiday.


The holidays are incredibly popular with single travellers as there is NO single person supplement.
