This is the ultimate haven for respite from modern life: it's the perfect retreat for creative inspiration, with breathtaking views and a super-tranquil atmosphere: go look at the reviews and photos!
The Arthouse is only available to folks who appreciate deep spiritual and ecological values!
My Patreon patrons get priority on bookings.
The house has a peaceful and healing atmosphere, which I hope all guests will both benefit from and contribute to...
Absolutely NO partying, drinking of excessive alcohol, raised voices, etc.
The whole house will only be let out whilst my partner and I are travelling: just contact me to propose a set of dates - we are open to discussion! :-)
The house is quirky and medieval in places! Your patience with this is appreciated :-) It requires attention to windows and doors, especially in summer and winter, when the natural medieval air conditioning can be taken advantage of: instructions given on arrival.
Unfortunately, there is no disabled access to the house - we are reached by steep steps.
The town has a great recycling policy, with most waste materials being collected from the door: you are asked to arrange all your waste plastic, metal, compost and paper in appropriate buckets.
The hospitality in Guardia Sanframondi is tremendous.
I come from a small island on the west coast of Scotland, and now work location-independently - between Scotland, Africa, Italy, Canada...
One of my favourite quotes is 'there is no way to happiness, happiness is the way'.
The Arthouse has been at the core of the renaissance movement in Guardia Sanframondi - I am the protagonist which started the movement: and am the sole holder of the Keys To The City.
The house is a container for multifarious creative and cultural activities. It also has a strong spiritual ethos :-)
My artwork involves painting, writing, making things, transforming spaces and inspiring people to live their dreams - in 2016-17, my main focus will be the Live Like A Happy Artist book series.
I love the lifestyle in this part of rural Italy: the pace of life, the people, the quality of light, the wild landscapes. I use my arthouse as a place of nourishment and retreat - a place to grow strength and be inspired artistically.
I wrote an Insider's Guide To Guardia, which gives a unique insight into life in the town as a straniera.
