Do you dream of traveling to Europe and meandering off the beaten path destinations?

Have you always wanted to tap into your creative side or broaden your imaginative horizons?

Do you enjoy luxurious and modern accommodations, creative excursions and chef-prepared meals?

Have you ever dreamed of harvesting Italian grapes for wine, picnicking in olive groves, dining on local streets, painting al fresco or enjoying movies under the stars?

Are you looking for a once in a lifetime experience in Italy?

If you answered yes to any of the above, join us in Italy at La Fortezza.

In 2016 we bought a dreamy medieval fortress in the countryside of northern Tuscany, a region known as Lunigiana. Now our Italian home and workshop space, the fortress is aptly named, La Fortezza. For the past few years, we have worked tirelessly to restore the property and turn it into a home and creative space for visionaries from around the world, and today, we welcome you to experience it for yourself.

We welcome private groups, too, so please feel free to email Annette to make arrangements:

We look forward to creating beauty with you, drinking our wine at aperitivo on the expansive terrace, and dining alfresco as the sun sets on the gorgeous Tuscan countryside.

Join us. What are you waiting for?

Learning my styling techniques and how to use them in every scenario will take you far; you can never unlearn them.
