About the location

Just 35 minutes from Larnaca Airport, your accommodation has been transformed from a monastery complete with a 10th century chapel built in 902 AD to this delightful hotel. This hotel for artists offers you tranquility, tradition and inspiration, along with a courtyard to unwind.

You will be surrounded by the old, cobbled streets of Lefkara with exquisite architecture and signs of old traditions around every corner. When you’re not painting or exploring, you can try some local wine, walk the hills, or explore the medieval alleys of the village, all on your doorstep for this wonderful painting holiday.

Lefkara is a charming village located on the southern side of Cyprus and is famous for its lace and silver handicrafts. It is steeped in Ottoman and Venetian history, which you will undoubtedly learn about during your time here.

It is not uncommon to find the groups of women who sit in the narrow village streets working on their fine embroidery, as they have for centuries. For the budding artist within you, Lefkara offers unlimited scope for the artist’s eye and endless inspiration for your next work.

Your accommodation will be in one of the 7 rooms in this boutique artists’ hotel. The hotel has an amazing restaurant, a lovely garden patio, and a courtyard where you can sip some local wine after a day of painting. The boutique hotel can easily be described as a remote tranquil place in the heart of one of the oldest villages of the island.

Although you will be transported daily to painting opportunities, just across the road from your accommodation is a fantastic art studio which you are free to use whenever you want. This gives you the flexibility and resources to make additional touches to your work whenever the mood takes you.

Veer off the typical tourist trail, and tune into your inner painter in the lush landscape of Cyprus. Your days will be filled with sun, mountains, foothills, seascape, and historic architecture to inspire you to become the artist you strive to be.
