Start your holiday by enjoying a relaxing few days at the hotel which is located on a sandy blue-flag beach with crystal-clear waters and set amongst lush gardens. Indulge in delicious Greek cuisine, pamper yourself at the Spa, explore some of the island’s monasteries, remote beaches, restaurants and bars or take a day trip to the neighbouring islands of Skopelos & Alonnisos. Later in the week (8th – 10th June), meet with Phoebe & Lucy for an enjoyable and informative 3-day painting workshop that will take place within the grounds of the hotel.

This really is the perfect opportunity to combine a well-deserved break with the chance to learn and be guided by these two experts, both of whom boast stellar credentials within the art world.

During the workshop, participants will enjoy several early morning and late afternoon painting sessions on the beach with Phoebe & Lucy where they will benefit from their unique instruction and teaching methods with plenty of one on one help and advice along the way. There will also be an informal drinks reception where guests will have the chance to meet and speak with both artists and where they’ll be surrounded by some of their own artwork that will be bought over from the UK.

There will also be opportunities to watch both artists at work as they paint at leisure around the hotel and for the younger clientele, Phoebe & Lucy will both visit the kids club on a couple of occasions where they will explore paint and art via messy play, encouraging the little ones to discover different colours & textures.

Please note: Painting workshop is limited to Max 10 persons attending each workshop. Available only to Skiathos Princess & Aegean Suites guests. Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
