Painting holiday in Tuscany

9th October 2021 - 16th October 2021

A special week-long course  in watercolours and ‘mixed media’ with Ali Hargreaves

Saturday 9 October to Saturday 16 October 2021

For centuries artists have drawn their inspiration from the Tuscan landscape and you could find few better places to enjoy your art and improve your skills than our beautiful historic watermill, set beside a river in a gentle valley. 

 “An enchanting place – I really loved it, endless delightful subjects to paint.”     

 “We’ve been on many painting holidays, but this was the best ever.”

You will stay in stylish bedrooms in elegant buildings around the sunlit courtyard. You’ll take leisurely breakfasts and mouth-watering evening meals in our new courtyard dining room (and also dine out in nearby restaurants to sample traditional dishes and local wines).  The mill’s gardens, secluded millstream paths and riverside walks are all yours to enjoy.

Your tutor: Ali Hargreaves – teacher, running classes and workshops that are fun, vibrant and informative.

She regularly runs ‘live workshops,’ filmed for the UK Society for All Artists (SAA). ( See

Everything is included in the cost of your holiday at the watermill: tuition, accommodation, pre-dinner aperitifs, all meals and wines (including outings to charming local restaurants), and all local transportation.

Details of all our 2021 sun-filled, fun-filled painting holidays will not be up on our website until September 2020 (but you CAN book now!) To find out more what we do, please visit
