Have you ever wanted an immersive experience in the incredible city of Florence… feeling doors open in your mind as you learn some of the language, seeing masterpieces on a daily basis, enjoying the delicious cuisine and being a creative student in this extraordinary place?!
Well, you can!
We help you get orientated to the old city and dive into beginners’ Italian during the first week. You’ll also experience gentle one-on-one creativity coaching time followed by a delicious lunch with Suzanne.
During the second week, there are daily hands-on workshops until 1pm so you can explore the city at your leisure during the beautiful afternoons … or take a siesta!
The experiential nature of the workshops are designed to help you explore and delight in your unique creativity. You’ll likely discover you’re far more creative than you thought. Or even discover talent you didn’t know you have!
Suzanne will share her favourite places with you, and take you to see the magnificent frescoes where she learned about the painting of light right here in Florence.
It’s many years since Suzanne visited Florence for the first time. This retreat is inspired by the awesome combination of art+language she experienced then. Her several visits since and her supportive network ensure things go as smoothly as possible. Coaching for an upgrade in calm and confidence, aims to help you get more from the program.

Upstream of the Arno River, beyond the famous silhouette of Il Ponte Vecchio – the old bridge – the sun appears to sink into a haze of rose and violet. Mesmerised by the light on the water, you might lean against a cool stone wall enjoying the warm glow on your cheeks and delicious gelato from a nearby gelateria…
The walk to our apartment takes you across time-worn cobblestones and beside ancient marble. Leonardo da Vinci, Fra Angelico, Michelangelo, Raphael, Dante, Botticelli among many illuminati, walked this way through the heart of Florence.
Sip a glass of Chianti while watching the effects of rosy light on red rooftops gently sloping down to the Arno and beyond to Brunelleschi’s famous dome of cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore – Mary of the Flowers.
Worries melt away in myriad sensual offerings – the scent of traditional perfumeries and herbalists (erboristorie), cafes, rustic markets and elegant shop windows…all backgrounded by the gravitas of grand architecture and many masterpieces.
