Ten days in a villa for ten friends: Airbnb launches the Decameron contest

In the footsteps of Boccaccio, the well-known portal launches a competition whose prize is a stay in an ancient residence in Tuscany for a group of acquaintances, which the quarantine has kept apart

The villa in Tuscany that houses the winners of the Airbnb competition (photo: Airbnb) Boccaccio 2.0, updated at the time of Covid-19. For the summer of 2020, Airbnb launches a competition inspired by the Decameron: whoever wins can spend 10 days in a large villa in Tuscany with as many friends found after the lockdown. Instead of the 100 stories, 10 online experiences to do together: from yoga class with an American Olympic athlete to Turkish breakfast.

To apply, from 30 June to 15 July you must send a short story to Airbnb which deepens the friendship that binds the group and what is expected from the pleasant voluntary confinement. The most creative and original story will win the chance to spend the prize holiday in an ancient residence in the center of an 18-hectare park with olive trees and ancient oak woods.

All with a lot of space available (what many missed in the lockdown): the villa, which is located in Montevarchi in the province of Arezzo, has in fact seven bedrooms and six bathrooms, a swimming pool with salt water, a Roman amphitheater and a outdoor wood oven.

If seven hundred years ago, the protagonists of the masterpiece of Boccaccio, sought refuge in the countryside outside Florence to escape the black death, and cheated the time by telling ghost stories, the winners of the competition platform, short term rental, is awarded, in addition to the night from 22 to 31 August , 10 online experiences to do together . That is to say, classes, shows or workshops offered by experts in connecting from all over the world , from Portugal to Singapore.
