REVIEWS ON THE SICILY HOLIDAY

BEST HOTEL I'VE STAYED IN

"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 2018

SUPERB

"We had a great week at the Belvedere which was superb !  Everyone of the staff was brilliant so welcoming, smiling and helpful" - Sicily 2018


THE BEST

"The holiday was up there with the best.  The hotel was lovely and I got so much help from Fiona.  She is a very giving person". - Sicily 2018


INSPIRATIONAL TUTOR

"Lovely group and an inspirational tutor. The service at the hotel was exceptional". - Sicily 2018

 


FIRST CLASS TUITION

“As you can see five stars all round, the only hiccup was the chilly weather but that was just a bit unlucky. It certainly didn't stop the enjoyment of wonderful scenery to paint, and Fiona's tuition was first class. She went out of her way to help my "painter's block" and lead me in a new direction. Thank you so much”. – Sicily March 2018

 

AS ALWAYS EXCELLENT

"As always excellent organization by Sheila and tuition with Fiona. Hotel Villa Beledere beautiful location, Comfortable, clean room and lovely, cheerful, helpful staff. So, what "more can I say, best of the three memorable holidays I have had with painting in Italy, should certainly go to Taorima Best Wishes for yet another successful season". Coral - Sicily 2017

 

EXCELLENT SUMS IT UP

"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 2017

 

ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL PAINTING HOLIDAYS I HAVE HAD

I thought this was one of the most successful painting holidays I've experienced. The location was excellent, with many places around the hotel and surrounding area to settle down to painting. The private area where we met each morning was very conducive to a serious approach to the day's art. Fiona was brilliant as usual, encouraging and thoughtful, very aware of our individual needs. The hotel was excellent, friendly, helpful staff, great lunches, if somewhat long winded (but that is the culture I suppose) wonderful views, lovely gardens”. – Trixie Walker – Sicily 2017

THIS TRIP WAS PERFECT

"The hotel was beautiful and the tuition was more than helpful. Fiona is very patient and set useful tasks for Clem and I in order to get us out of our comfort zone a bit more. The hotel's food was delicious and it was lovely to have lunch with everyone everyday to catch up on what we've been doing. This trip was perfect and organised very well! Thank you Sheila! – Sicily 2017

 

A WONDERFUL WEEK

"What a wonderful week. Brilliant guidance and tuition from Fiona Graham-Mackay, in a beautiful setting". - Sicily 2017
