Sewing Residentials and classes in Cyprus

Since moving to Cyprus and setting up my little sewing nook here I have been considering the idea of sewing residentials long and hard. It strikes me me that this idea has been missing from our wondrous online community. We have all these amazing classes happening all around the UK and the US and probably in other countries too (like Cyprus where I have started giving classes), but there hasn't been much talk of residentials to my knowledge. Budding bakers and cooks have getaways, wannabe writers go on weekend courses, crafters have conventions. What could be better for us sewists than packing up our most precious little tools and dedicating a few precious holiday days to our passion?

I would like to try and offer a gorgeous place to stay, yummy home made food with garden ingredients, sewing time and instruction, as well as other Cypriot loveliness like walks in the mountains or wine tasting at the village winery (wine and sewing-  surely a match made in heaven!).

This is what the accommodation could look like:
The Old Olive Mill Doros- my lovely neighbour's house for rent. 

The lounging and walking would be something like this:

Views across the Commandaria region from my garden
Dinners could look something like this: 

Probably without the mop!

And sewing would look like whatever you were inspired to make!

 At the moment this is all just a plan with no idea of prices or dates. I have the sewing space and the sleeping place ready. I have a garden and cupboard full of food to cook. I have my own sewing and teaching skills (but would also be up for getting guest teachers to come). And Cyprus has a lot of beautiful sunshine, pretty countryside and lovely beaches to offer (as well as cats- never fear!). I just need to know if you lovelies would be interested. 
I would massively appreciate any feedback, ideas and for you to share this as much as you can.

I am also teaching classes in Nicosia and Paphos at the moment and offering private or group classes in the gorgeous village environment you see above.
