"Wonderfully organised programme with so much to see and do that I couldn't find enough time to actually paint!! I learned so much from watching the live painting demonstrations projected onto large screens, and visiting the exhibited artworks in galleries and museums.The hotel was lovely - rooms very spacious, clean and comfortable; staff most attentive and helpful; breakfasts plentiful. Food in the three selected restaurants was excellent and, as always, I do enjoy eating a la carte instead of being offered a bog standard tourist menu - thank you, Sheila! For a future trip may I suggest that on the final day, when the festival has closed, we could then have some painting tuition - there really wasn't much time to fit it in during the festival - and, during the festival, we could visit some of the exhibited artworks with our tutor for a critique and explanation of some of the techniques used. I was amazed at what could be achieved using just water colour. Altogether another most successful and enjoyable week, Sheila - thank you". - Fabriano 2018


"Absolutely brilliant... loads of things done, but very relaxed". - Fabriano 2018


"I wanted to add how wonderful a time we had.. mixing the holiday with the festival was perfect.  The “Le Muse” hotel was really nice, a hotel to live in, nice people, traditional building but with good facilities.  Charles is perfect.  If we are able, we will be back next year! Oh dear I'm gushing" Steve - Fabriano 2018 


"This to say thanks to you from us both for a really wonderful holiday.  The email backup and pointers that you gave us before the trip Sheila were amazing.  We found it a joy to meet so many interesting and friendly people from all quarters.  The Hotel was ideal, very friendly staff , and easy walk to all locations which was a joy.  Helen wishes to say that she learnt such a lot from Charles.  We are very tempted to join your Castello di Petroia holiday in 2019 if its still on the menu then?  Our grateful thanks to you".
