Bring out your artistic side and share your host’s passion for mosaics at her artist retreat in Göcek, a quiet, picturesque village in Western Turkey, with views that stretch to Greece over an expansive bay.

But this all-inclusive holiday is not just about mosaics! It’s about you having a great time: create your own unique artwork, relax by the pool, discover new places, lounge on the beach, taste delicious food… simply unwind and enjoy your home away from home.

This holiday includes food, drinks, snacks, accommodation, trips and much more. Immerse yourself in the slow pace of life afforded by this corner of the world, and live like a local as you take time out of the pace of everyday life. Your host will be with you every step of the way on this creative & cultural journey, and you will return home with a beautiful artwork and lots of great memories!

Relax in beautiful surroundings at a villa that lies far off the tourist trail

Discover beautiful beaches, the village and the local market on a week that immerses you in the authentic culture of the region

Your Local Host:


I am a very experienced host who enjoys making guests feel at home. My aim is not only to share my love of mosaics but also my daily life in Turkey: its culture, its traditions, its beautiful scenery and its delicious food. Turkey has been my home for 15 years and sharing my knowledge and my art with others is a wonderful experience. It is therapeutic, fun and very relaxing. It’s amazing how much you can fit into 1 week without any stress and I thrive on seeing happy faces when it’s time to say goodbye - because then I know I’ve made a positive change in someone’s life. What can be better?
