Why choose us?
You choose us because of our personal approach, our flexibility and our stunning, heavenly property and the highly interesting surroundings.
As to the workshops it does not matter whether you are a beginner or a more experienced person. The workshops are small-scale, 8 to 10 persons at max. Nevertheless we have possibilities for larger groups; please get in touch. The property is big enough - meals for 20 persons no problem - and we can provide sufficient sleeps.
If you do not feel like doing art, culture or history, hiking - may be in the wake of St. Francis -, biking or swimming in one of the three lakes in the vicinity is a possibility.
‘Dolce far niente’, is very easy. We have an enchanting garden with delightful views, 'deafening' silence and magnificent panorama's. A perfect place for meditation. In summer the splendour of flowers is nearly overwhelming, the sentences are 'breathtaking.’ Starry skies, because of an absolute lack of pollution. A paradise for bird-watchers: it is a joy to see of hear owls, cuckoo's, punk-birds, nightingales warbling and pottering everywhere…
We furnished the apartments in detail, as if we were living there. We have adapted the interior to our owns desires, we have been living there for 1,5 year. We installed all conveniences, excellent beds, well equipped kitchens, proper sanitation.
Another reason to choose us is the informal atmosphere, the personal touch, our tender loving care and meals, our sense of humor, pleasant company of other people that we attract…
Even if you do not do a course, you may use the available artistic tools and materials.
If you like reading, you can use our library, which includes loads of novels and art books.
In the very vicinity there is a wealth of small towns, villages, sculpture parks, Etruscan excavations etc. The central position between Rome and Florence is another motive to choose us. Both Rome and Florence only one resp. one and a half hour per train.
