Painting Retreats

Are you a dab hand with a paint-brush or do you want to develop your skills?

Our inspiring and relaxing painting holidays with professional and renowned tutors are designed to help both experienced painters and beginners to release their inner artist.

The landscapes of Le Marche, Italy, the birthplace of Raphael and Leopardi, have inspired artists for centuries. It's one of Italy’s most picturesque regions and is rich in stunning, natural beauty - endless coastline, rolling hills dotted with vineyards, olive trees, historic villages and breathtaking mountain ranges. You will find fewer better places to enjoy and improve your art.

Painting holiday prices start from €950 per person which includes the following:

  • 7 nights luxury en-suite accommodation - see our rooms here
  • full board: includes breakfast, lunch and evening meals
  • house wine with meals
  • 5 days painting days (tuition fees may apply - see individual fact sheets)
  • 5 lunches in a restaurant or gourmet picnics on location
  • all local transportation (including transfers from local pick-up points)*
  • unlimited use of our lockable studio
  • basic painting materials

*On the day of arrival we organise pick up times based on the groups arrival times either into Ancona airport or at the local train or coach stops. 

We will do our very best to make sure nobody has to wait for too long but please be aware we will be picking up other members of the group whose arrival times may not necessary coincide perfectly with your own and we ask for your patience.

If you are arriving at a time that really doesn’t tie in with the group or arriving a day or so earlier we can arrange for a taxi to pick you up.   The cost of a taxi is in the region of €180.  If there is anybody else arriving doing the same we will arrange it so that you can share the transport costs.

Similarly for departure, for retreats the rooms are to be vacated by 10:00 on the morning of departure.  Departure time will be set based on the majority of the group.  Again we will do our very best to accommodate everyone.
