Unforgettable workshops

Nothing compares to a Villa Floretti workshop on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula.  Curated with selected artisans and makers, we love sharing some laughter, the beautiful views and a glass of local bubbles with our guests.   All workshop participants leave with a stunning bouquet of farm fresh flowers.


Come along to learn a new skill, escape the hustle and bustle and bathe in the stillness and beauty that is our Protea plantation.
