and wine were excellent." - DM, Larnaca, Cyprus

Our painting holidays are open to people of all
ages and abilities aged 18 or over. However,
Paxos is a relatively hilly island and we
therefore do not feel that they are suitable for
anyone with walking difficulties.
We will give
you a discount of £40 if you book any two
holidays or courses from our current programme.
