Artisa Academic & Art Retreat, the place to create and to connect

We have exciting news. At the end of June 2021 we became the happy owners of a magnificent place in Le Marche, Italy. A place that is very suitable for our work. Click here for more info.  We will be hosting our retreats mainly in Italy and some weeks in spring in Greece.

Come and experience the innovative and productive power of ARTISA Academic and Art Retreat, in the magnificent landscape of Le Marche.

Open writing, creative and academic retreats

You can join a (academic) writing retreat, create art, explore, take a time-out and re-energize. Away from the distractions of daily life, you have uninterrupted individual time during the day and the possibility of inspiring meetings with other fellow residents. The setting, structure and program… everything is very supportive in getting the most out of your retreat.

Specific programs for writing, self-development and creativity

Besides our open retreats we offer guided programs and retreats directed toward personal, creative and spiritual development.
