Last summer, on my final night in Alghero, I had already planned to return. Sardegna is a special place, Alghero is a beautiful city, but for me it’s about people, and the people at Pintadera are undeniably some of the most genuine, warm hearted and welcoming people I have ever met. Lessons are carefully planned and delivered by professional staff who are a constant source of support and encouragement. The classrooms are spaces filled with laughter and new friends. The after school excursions are engaging and fun, run by knowledgeable locals who are proud to share their culture and their home with visitors. Pintadera is more than a school. Pintadera is a family. And as I sit here enjoying one of my last evenings in Alghero, reflecting on how much I have learned this summer, I am already planning my return.
