Please see the latest review from our guest in June 2016
We have just come back from a wonderful experience in Umbria, and it is all credit to the generosity and expertise of Alan and Susan Reed. This was our first course in Watercolour Painting. Hopefully, it will not be our last!
The beautiful location, matched by exquisite accommodation, exceeded all expectations. Attended to by a dedicated, warm, friendly and attentive staff, we enjoyed THE most amazing local cuisine, matched only by the quality of the wine from the estate. Eduardo deserves a VERY special mention! Meeting in the evening for a pre-dinner Prosecco was always the prelude to a very special occasion.
It was a diverse group of ‘artists’ coming together, a splendid mix of individuals generating interesting conversations, great laughter and immense warmth.
The schedule was well-planned and executed. The well-composed itinerary opened our eyes to a variety of locations, all of which were stunning. Each time, the opportunity to sketch and/or paint gave the visit that necessary dimension, both for novices and budding impressionists alike! Alan and Susan know this area well, and were able to direct us toward good vantage points for sketching and painting (Alan), and great shopping finds (Susan). Their sensitivity to the needs and interests of individuals was always evident and appreciated….and that is a very special gift to have!
