Exceptional tutoring
Our tutors are crucial to the success of our holidays. We hand pick our tutors for their talent, warmth and charm. All are exceptionally well qualified with real teaching experience. and a sense of humour!
There is plenty of individual tuition for budding and accomplished artists alike. Our tutors are totally committed, teaching for 6 – 8 hours per day.
We care about your passion, and over the course of the week you will be inspired and grow in confidence, coming home with a real sense of achievement and some lovely work.
Just bring your favourite Burnt Sienna or Blue Vermilion – we will provide the boards and chairs.
At the end of the week, you will exhibit your work and have the chance to discuss your progress and that of your fellow travellers – all very relaxed with a glass of wine!

Fun and friendship
We are one of the few painting holiday companies who are ATOL protected – travel with us in confidence. All you have to do is turn up at the airport and we will take care of the rest.
Culinary experiences are a vital part of any holiday, and we never miss the chance for olive oil, wine or cheese tasting! Madeiran wines, olives in Tuscany, and so much more...
New friends are often made during the course of our trips, and many of our clients return year after year for this very reason. We welcome over 65% of returning guests each year.
Our hotels & locations are special
We have spent the past sixteen years discovering the most magical locations for painting. Be inspired by the landscape, sea, lakes, woodland and views... we think they are unbeatable.
We have worked hard to build strong links with local guides, hoteliers and restaurateurs – they have become an extension of the Authentic Adventures staff, and are often close friends.
We have carefully chosen our hotels for their rustic charm and friendly service. All have excellent food, fabulous gardens, and some have swimming pools. Above all, the hoteliers are welcoming and will look after you!
