  • This painting holiday experience was nothing like that portrayed on The Retreat web site. The accommodation in a 2 star "renovated" farmhouse was so far removed from luxury it was ridiculous.the squeaky bed came complete with hard mattress, the linen was old and washed out and the shower had no soap holder and little water spray that went cold while you were showering if someone used the water elsewhere. For this I was charged sole use rate when sharing with non painting partner... So much for non painter discount. Beware this is highly deceptive web site even to the fact that the teacher showed no evidence of a style that is close to the bright painting displayed on the site and which attracted me to spending £2,100 for 7 nights it is totally overpriced and second rate.
  • is this an art gallery showcasing paintings of Italy during WW2?
