"Excellent tuition from Fiona who targeted my strengths and weakness to leave me feeling I had moved forward with my watercolour painting during the week. The hotel was the best I had ever stayed in, with beautifully tiered and well kept gardens, faultless rooms and helpful and friendly staff". - Sicily 



"We had a great week at the Belvedere which was superb !  Everyone of the staff was brilliant so welcoming, smiling and helpful" - Sicily


"Excellent sums it up. This was one of my best ever holidays. The painting tuition was fantastic - Fiona, generous as ever with her help and encouragement. I really felt I had achieved something by the end of the week. The hotel was spectacular and all of the staff, from the moment I arrived, were outstanding. Thank you for organising every detail. Ten days of this would be absolutely splendid..."! - Sicily
