Gorgiano Studios – About us
Painting Holidays Italy – Gorgiano Art Studios are run by husband and wife team Caroline and Andrea.
We moved to Camerino from Bethnal Green in the East End of London, about 10 years ago. We already knew what we wanted to do. I know my way around an easel and Andrea is pretty handy with a frying pan. It is a great privilege to be do something which uses both our skills.
We had a check list, I didn’t want anywhere unbearably hot, Andrea didn’t want anywhere North – we both wanted ‘pretty’, neither wanted ‘touristy’ – so Le Marche fit the bill.
At Montegemmo we have found everything we were looking for. A stunning house with beautiful views across the Fabriano valley, sitting in an amazingly evocative landscape. Not to mention all the ensuite accommodation and fabulous studio.
We love what we do and we would love you to come and join us.
If you’d like to make a booking, or have any questions, please complete the form below and we’ll be in touch right away.

our address is Gorgiano Studios, Localita Paradiso Le Prata 18, Pioraco (MC), 62025, Italy
