Tuition will take place each morning in the light filled studio of Laura and Frank just a three minute walk from the hotel.  Frank usually brings out prosecco and nibbles at 12 noon.  Guests are free to have lunch wherever they wish.   Each evening guests will get together to have dinner in different restaurants in the centre of Florence.  Dinner is not included on Friday night.  This holiday is very suitable for single people travelling alone.  We have put our intimate knowledge of Florence and its restaurants to good use.  We have found a perfect venue for our tuition, 4 minutes walk from the hotel.  It is a private, warm light-filled studio in a handsome palazzo in the centre of Florence owned and run by Frank Rekrut and Laura Thompson who are alumni of The Florence Academy of Art.

WONDERFUL HOLIDAY

"It was a perfectly organised, wonderful holiday with everything taken care of". - Florence April 2019

 

FANTASTIC TIME

"I had a fantastic time! The group was great and Frank and Laura are lovely people. I learnt a huge amount and will definitely come again" - Annette - Florence April 2019

 

DELIGHTFUL HOLIDAY

"A delightful holiday. I learned so much! Laura was careful to give individual feedback, and her observations were extremely helpful. The other participants on the course were excellent company, and the cultural activities were terrific. Sheila dealt with unexpected travel complications (cancellation of a flight caused by strike action) with her usual remarkable efficiency and kindness. Quality time indeed". - Florence April 2018
