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

As a first timer throughly enjoyed it all and thought the painting group (of which I was) was a particulary happy one. Roger was an excellent tutor and organiser, honest with his criticism and wonderfully encouraging and helpful.

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. Guests tell us that our company is friendly and our trips are fun!
Our hotels & locations are special
We have spent the past fifteen 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!
