Fabulous Gardens

The magnificent gardens were designed and landscaped with the artist in mind.

The landscaped gardens which cover an area of over 5000sq/mtrs, were professionally designed from the outset with the needs of the artist in mind.
The numerous terraces were created to offer sitting areas, in shade or sun, together with areas to draw or paint the outstanding views across the valley.

Observations from many students state that it is possible “to stay within the grounds and never be short of something to paint”.

The kitchen garden produces the vast majority of organic vegetables for the whole summer, while the fruit trees provide us, not only fresh fruit but freshly made juices, which are particularly appreciated with breakfast.
