Join me for an enchanting eight-day getaway at the Castello di Postignano, a medieval borgo (hamlet) originally built back in the…
All of our time painting from the model is spent inside our studio, the old church, while several afternoons will be spent painting en plein air under the awning of the Rose Garden.
If you are enthusiastic about portraiture and landscape as a subject, and are a beginner or advanced painter in pursuit of adventure and community, this is an experience for you!
Time not painting is dedicated to special activities enjoyed by all painters and accompanying family/companions: learning to cook, tasting wines, swimming in the glorious outdoor pool, touring the beautiful city of Spoleto or horse-back riding on the plains near Casteluccio.
Castello di Postignano is an historic medieval fortified hamlet, located in Valnerina in the heart of Umbria, that had languished abandoned for decades.
A passionate and dedicated team has given it a new lease of life, as multi-building hotel, implementing this remarkable restoration project paying meticulous attention to every single detail.
La Casa Rosa is the real heart of the Postignano castle. Its cuisine is simple, and its philosophy is based on great care, respect for local traditions and excellent quality of the fresh ingredients. The welcoming staff will make you feel at home even if you just drop in for a coffee.
Our Chef Maria Massimiani, will tickle your taste buds with original combinations of traditional Umbrian dishes and from other parts of Italy too; there will be biscuits, cakes and many delicate details; Maria’s cuisine is primarily made of local seasonal ingredients.
