A sudden opportunity to paint the vivid Tuscan countryside

Painting by Maggie Renner Hoffmann, a tutor at The Watermill at Posara painting holidays/vacations, Tuscany, Italy.A cancellation today on Maggie Renner Hellmann’s painting course here in September has given me the excuse to show you again her wonderful picture of sunflowers. Isn’t it vibrant? Why not come and join Maggie, taking up that last place and painting all the fantastic colours of unspoiled rural Tuscany in and around the Watermill?

The room that has become available is our Bronzino bedroom, a large double room overlooking the Watermill Gardens with the towering Apennine mountains beyond. It’s perfect for a couple, so you may like to bring your non-painting partner (or a painting partner, come to that!) But we are quite happy to let it out to a single person. You can find out more about Maggie’s course and all our bedrooms below, where we are also publishing the latest details on the availability of all our creative courses.

We’ve already sold some 245 places this year, but there are still a few left. And even if you see a course that you particularly like is fully booked, please get in touch with us and will put you on the waiting list. There are often cancellations.
