Tuscan Painting Holiday

Tuition FROM: Monday, 3 June 2019 TO: Monday, 10 June 2019

Tuition Type: Painting Holiday

  • Description
    This is a hill top working vineyard and olive farm 20km south of Florence, near Greve in Chianti. It is a beautiful, typically Tuscan rural area, with sandstone buildings, terracotta roofs, pots and flowers. A painters’ dream! The lovely gardens are full of antique roses with views over hills and mountains and there are nearby villages to paint and enjoy.
    The studio is 40 sqm with large windows opening onto the gardens, vineyards and olive groves, a wonderful base for our 6 days of painting. Tuition is informal and friendly with plenty of explanation and demonstration.
    Approximate number of students will be about 12.
    We are going to have two all day painting excursions into nearby market villages, where we can buy lunch locally, transport included. A great chance for sketching and painting!
    The Wine Tour and Tasting on Friday evening is followed by dinner in an historic Castle. This is for everyone!
    Wifi is free of charge and available in all the outdoor common areas.
    All rooms are on the ground floor, double/twin, en-suite, with tea/coffee facilities and a private spot in the garden for sitting and relaxing.
    7 days half board, with lunch on the days we paint at Ancora del Chianti. Drinks are not included, but there is a bar with soft drinks, the house Chianti Red, white wine and beer.
    Double room per person, £1110, Single room £1280, Non-painter £820.
    Non-painters are included in the Wine Tour, Tasting and Dinner and in the Painting Excursions.
