provide a tranquil space for reflection, healing, and Finding your Muse!
Creating Art takes inspiration and energy. We are committed to creating a space where visiting artists are able to recharge, be inspired and find their muse!
WHAT WE DO
Sanctuario is built around the idea of giving artists as much space as they need, while being available to be guides to the most beautiful place in Italy.
Santa Vittoria is an incredibly beautiful place, filled with friendly and welcoming people. Taking a stroll, is always slow and involves conversations with all the locals.
FIND YOUR MUSE
Every season in Le Marche turns into a spectacle. In the springtime (primavera), we are host to many hundreds of starlings. They swoop and pirouette above our heads while we sit out on the terrazzo.
