Are you searching for that perfect space to devote to your painting in a beautiful, stimulating environment? If so, come and join us at our workspace on Portugal’s spectacular coastline in Cascais where you can paint from early morning until sun set. We offer a perfect place for artists looking for uninterrupted creativity, enabling you to concentrate fully on your work without distraction.
Naturally, the sea and the coastline are of particular attraction, but the area also offers many other opportunities for outdoor painting. This retreat is completely tailored to your personal needs; you can spend the whole day painting or you could just choose to paint in the morning and have the afternoons free to visit Cascais, Sintra or Lisbon. You could also join the Cascais monthly Open-air Painting Meeting, should it occur during your stay.
We provide full transfers from the airport to your hotel and we will accompany you on any chosen tours, providing all the assistance you might need.
You choose the hotel you would like to stay.
We can make suggestions depending on your preferences.
Cascais has a rich history and in the past was used as a retreat for many European Kings and Queens. It has a Museum Quarter situated in the centre with many beautiful museums and several examples of stunning architecture. Nowadays, it is a beautiful seaside resort where many Portuguese and tourists choose to spend their summer holidays. There are also many excellent restaurants in Cascais and Estoril where you will be able to enjoy the local gastronomy.
Our programs have 3 or 5 nights. For other periods or groups (more than 7 people), please contact us.
This could be our typical program for 5 days:
Transfer from Lisbon’s airport to the Hotel
10:00 to 13:00 - Assistance and transport to the local beaches for sketching, watercolour or oil painting
Afternoon - You will be completely free to paint where and when you wish to.
There is a beautiful maritime view a few meters from the hotel, perfect to start you escapade. And you can also paint, photograph and sketch during our tours to Cascais and Sintra.
