Stunning views are essential for a painting holiday in Italy and that is why our villas are hand-picked to find the perfect location. We have carefully chosen areas of Tuscany famous for their breathtaking scenery to inspire our guests - what could be better than painting the olive groves, rolling hills and vineyards? When you are not painting, take some time to relax by the pool and wander the grounds of the estate. All bedrooms are ensuite and decorated in a contemporary style.
Painting Short Break in Tuscany - Itinerary
Benvenuti! Welcome to Tuscany! Upon your arrival at Pisa Airport, you will find our Flavours driver waiting for the group with a sign that says ‘Flavours’. Once the group is all together, you will be taken to the villa where you can settle in, meet your chef and teacher and enjoy welcome drinks. Dinner this evening is at the villa, prepared by your chef.
After breakfast, you’ll head to a local village with your teacher to sketch the views. Enjoy lunch at the villa and the afternoon is yours to develop your watercolour and drawing skills in another painting session with your teacher. Dinner is prepared at the villa.
Enjoy the day in Florence, a world famous city, considered the birthplace of the Renaissance, needs no introduction and certainly lives up to its reputation. Walk around the market, spend the day exploring the many galleries and museums (buy your tickets in advance to avoid the queues). Lunch will be at our favourite trattoria in central Florence. Return to the villa late afternoon, dinner is prepared by your chef at the villa.
This morning you’ll develop the elements of composition and colour and have your final lesson with the group. After lunch, your driver will collect you from the villa and take you back to the airport for your flight home. Arrivederci!
