Painting Holiday June 28 2021

The world is opening up.

If you are able to travel, I’ll be ready to offer you a fabulous painting holiday in my little French village of Quarante.

Tuition starting Monday June 28.

Quarante is a hilltop village surrounded by vineyards, not far from the Mediterranean and the Pyrenees. You will be staying in an old village house, part of which dates from the 14th century in the heart of the village.

There are two twin rooms (great for two ladies who want to holiday and paint together) and one double, both with en suite shower rooms which are all accessed by interlocking stairways. The building is made up of a few houses making it a fascinating place to immerse yourself in a French lifestyle. The historic building is made up of more than one property making it a fascinating place to stay.

However, it should be pointed out that the venue may not be suitable for anyone who has difficulty with narrow, uneven, and steep staircases. The price for staying in a bit of history.

Tuition will take place either out in the village or in my studio, a short walk from your accommodation

The holidays includes:

1200 euros per person NO SINGLE SUPPLEMENT

650 euros non-painter

6 nights accommodation starting from Sunday night through to Friday night includes:
