A Taste of Tuscan Arts offers a holiday with a difference!
We are a small group of Arts teachers and practitioners, passionate about our individual areas of expertise and wanting to share our knowledge and love of the Arts. We offer accommodation in one of the beautiful historic villas overlooking the charming spa village of Bagni di Lucca.
Shelley, Byron, Puccini and Toscanini have all stayed there, taking the waters and creating at leisure; and no wonder! Nestling in the Lima valley at the foot of the Apennines, this 'Little Switzerland' is rich in artistic and natural beauty, offering a haven for the creative spirit.
