Italian Plant Portraits in coloured pencil with Ann Swan

Il CollacioWe have found a beautiful area in which to enjoy the Italian Ann Swan experience, stunning views, excellent local cuisine, fine wine, good company, and colouring in with sun!

Il Collaccio is a holiday farm in the green heart of Umbria and has 11 refurbished rooms all with en-suite bathrooms. Some of the rooms come with a balcony overlooking the beautiful countryside. (We draw lots for the balconies) Two rooms are designed to accommodate disabled guests or for those preferring the ground floor. There are some chalets within the grounds and for the hardier souls there is also a campsite.

The on site restaurant is approximately a 100 yards from the hotel and studio and serves local produce cooked by the Italian family who own the hotel.

Il CollacioMost mornings on the course will be spent in the ground floor studio room or veranda, focusing on the local flora. In June we have been told that it is their peak flower season and there will be an abundance of wild orchids. Afternoons can be spent working independently in the studio, relaxing or exploring the area; you choose it’s your holiday!  We shall be arranging at least one or two half day excursions to local places of interest and scenic beauty. This year we will be visitng the Piano Grande which is a magnificent basin surrounded by mountains and carpetted as far as the eye can see with stunning wild flowers, and we will also most probably be visiting Assissi. Non painting partners are welcome, and there is a wealth of activities that can be arranged.

Prices include breakfast, buffet lunch and dinner.  Air fare, transport between the airport and the hotel plus any excursions are additional.
Because of anticipated demand bookings must be accompanied by the deposit.

£785 per person for a shared room with ensuite (single room supplement £95) + airfare. (Non-painting partners £525)

There are also chalets, log cabins, apartments and fixed tents available, should you be interested please contact Ann for prices.
