How do I get there?

Book your flight into Fiumicino Airport, Rome, Italy and we will work out a simple solution for you to get to and from the villa. We strongly recommend renting a car, very simple to do with your drivers license. Transportations costs are not included.

I’m traveling alone, is anyone else?

This retreat is a wonderful opportunity to meet and make new friends. Some attendees will be traveling solo while others will have companions. We will introduce the workshop attendees to each other via email previous to travel.

What is your teaching style?

The painting workshop will be individually customized so that each attendee gains the full benefit while completely enjoying the experience. Jill’s demos and talks will review basics, often overlooked aspects and her own insights into what goes into a successful painting.

Is the Studio at the Villa?

Yes, the studio is only a short walk across the courtyard from the main house. The grounds and views are extensive and surrounded by olive groves. We will be there at harvest time. There are some photos below to give you an idea of where you will spend 8 spectacular days.
