Some of the core values at Villa Lena include creativity, collaboration, community and connection. Our exciting programme of creative workshops addresses all of these principles, bringing unique experiences to our guests, led by our artists-in-residence. The workshops – which have ranged from flower arranging to pottery, creative writing to art therapy – will vary depending on the time of year and artists we have on the residency programme. This ever evolving cycle of experiences means you never quite know what to expect and each stay at Villa Lena is totally unique. There is always a focus on sustainability, we use natural materials where possible and create little to no waste, and connection to our surrounding nature. Participation in all creative workshops is free for hotel guests, though sometimes there might be a small charge for materials.
