All inclusive Art Holidays in the heart of Italy
New for 2018 – Long Weekend Painting Workshops
Enjoy our luxurious ensuite accommodation with a private room for every artist, vast and airy studio, ancient olive trees and panoramic views
Our small group size means the holidays are tailored to individual needs. It's your holiday, you set the pace.
Sample Andrea's delicious cooking.
We try to get out everyday so that you can explore this beautiful area. This is Rocca Varano which you will be painting
We offer Art holidays for everyone, whatever your experience and in any medium.
Our group size is small so you will have plenty of one to one tuition, and we are flexibility for excursions and projects. With authentic Italian cuisine and private ensuite rooms in a beautiful location you can really enjoy an artistic holiday in Italy, explore this delightful region, meet new friends from around the world and indulge your creative side.
In Le Marche you will find everything that you love about Italy, beautiful views and renaissance towns unspoilt by tourism. At the edge of the Sibilini Mountains, our climate is hot and sunny but escapes the scorching heat and dryness of Southern Italy, and we are still only 30 minutes from the sea.
If you want to explore the area we recommend our Sketching and Journaling course which involves lots of day trips and offers a unique Italian experience.
Non painting partners are also welcome at a 30% discount. There is plenty for them to do and discover. If Giottos, sunshine and ice cream are simply not enough we can also arrange cookery, Italian, or yoga lessons..
What a magical week – until next time…
