Visiting towns In the Salento region of Puglia

I don't know about you but I get SO MUCH from traveling. Being in a new place, finding beauty from a new perspective, simply getting away from my routines and responsibilities is such a gift!! I lived in Italy for several years and its still an important part of me today (I fell in love with the language and was determined to speak it fluently) . The past few years I've been exploring less touristed areas like Campania, Puglia, and Sicily-- and am so enamored with the south. The history and architecture, the language, food, lifestyle, the MEDITERRANEAN -- there's so much I love about Italy! 

It makes me so happy to share such beauty and inspiration, and with that I'm s uper excited  to tell you I'm hosting and organizing 2016 Creative Retreats in Southern Italy  for you! Think SLOW (living, food, art, travel), at home in a light-filled villa (see below), living like a local, swimming in the clear blue sea, and making art everyday! Am I calling your name? Respond to this email and tell me about yourself and what your main interests are in the retreat. Space is quite limited and because I'd like to customize to the group (inviting guest teachers & local artists, planning accommodations, etc.), I'm starting a waiting list and will be in touch with more details as we move forward.
