Get Creative

with Eljay and the team at our 250 year-old village house set in its secluded garden retreat only moments from the clear blue Aegean Sea. You will discover bustling markets, harbour cafes, hidden ancient ruins and tucked away villages where life appears to have stood still for centuries. Our delicious home cooked regional food and wines served daily, will complete your Turkish experience.

The art groups are small so the tuition can be tailored to your individual needs, we cater for all levels and all mediums, and there is no need to worry about bringing all your own materials, they are all included in the cost of the holiday too!

The location is unique and the ambience truly special. Come alone and make new friends, or bring your partner or a friend, non-painters are very welcome, call us now for more details, we are always delighted to chat.
