I had the most comfortable and rewarding experience with Sicily Artist Retreat. The team makes everybody feel at home. Everyone got personal and thorough critiques, and the progress of the entire group was undoubtedly visible. The location is beautiful, offering a taste of Sicily and of Italy, with its landscapes, culture, history and food. Totally recommended

You will be staying at the brand new Baglio Custera hotel, a boutique resort in the heart of Marsala’s countryside, built on ancient lines, those of the "Baglio," or farmhouse. This modern resort stands on the Rakalia hill, the site of an ancient shrine to Hercules, surrounded by olive and orange groves and boasts incredible views of the Sicilian sunsets overlooking Favignana island.

All rooms are fully airconditioned and equipped with WiFi, modern bathrooms with walk-in shower, and large king-size beds with hypoallergenic sheets, pillows, and mattresses.

Baglio Custera's world-class chef will stun you with his creative dishes making use of all fresh and local produce, much of which is grown in the surrounding gardens. With notice, the hotel is able to cater to all dietary requirements.

All meals, accommodation, and ground transport are included in our Workshop Retreats.
