PAINTING HOLIDAY – ITHACA 12 – 19 May 2017
Chris Stinchcombe and Anne Elliott are joining forces to run a Painting holiday in the unspoiled Island of Ithaca, we will be staying in a family run hotel in a small village ‘Frikes’ where fishing boats are moored and 3-4 cafe/tavernas can be found. Situated in the north of the Island amidst the hills we will be staying on a relatively undiscovered Greek island. The locals are warm and friendly with a rich heritage.
Was Ithaca really the homeland of the Odysseus – certainly descriptions that Homer mentioned seemed to fit?
Ithaca has no airport which is why we selected this unspoiled Island to be our first venue. Ithaca is one of the smaller Ionian Islands, very close to Kefalonia, where our flights land. We transport by air-conditioned minibus via the ferry at Sami where Captain Corelli’s Mandolin was filmed. An abundance of painting subjects from monasteries, broken down buildings, spectacle views, to the wildflowers that grow in abundance.
