Spring into action to grab a place on a Watermill creative course

Lois primroses 1 Mar 17 reduced and croppedSpring is certainly beginning to Spring in Italy, as you can see from Lois’ picture above of primroses (and a plucky dandelion) blooming beside the millstream. We’re just back in Florence (our Winter quarters!) from a quick visit to the Watermill and we’re happy to report the new building work is going very well. The new bedrooms overlooking the river are going to be splendid. And bookings for our 2017 creative courses are also looking splendid, with more than 210 people already signed in. We’d love you to join us. Several courses are already full, but We still have plenty of lovely bedrooms (all with en suite bathrooms) and apartment suites to offer you.
