Method of Payment

When you book directly with me, not only do you get the best price for your painting holiday, but I also give you a number of options to how you pay.

Transferring money can sometimes be costly, so I give you a variety of payment methods,


I can accept payment via PayPal which is an accepted and safe form of transferring fund between currencies.

UK to French Bank Transfer

If that suits you or you can do a transfer to my French bank account and the best way to do this is through a company called Transferwise. You may already know them, but I use them a lot and not only are they the cheapest company for moving money between currencies, they are also very quick.

Here is a link which you can use.   and please use this link as https.// which is an invitation from me. As long as the amount is over 500 the transfer will be FREE

Sterling or GBP

This is also possible so ask me for details.

Painting Tuition Rates

Flexibility is the name of the game and I am very happy to design a painting experience to suit you. Below are a few ideas, but if you have an idea in mind just get in touch.

Holiday group rate

If you want to arrange your own group at the holiday venue of your choice?  Then this is the rate for you. This is available for a group with a minimum of four people for 24 hours of tuition providing your own materials and equipment

15 euros per person per day over four days plus expenses if over a 30 km radius. Fewer than four days by negotiation.

One 2 one tuition

I can offer you a 'Get started with Watercolours' which is a mini course I have designed to give you what you need to know to star painting pictures. You will leave with your own portfolio of samples, colour charts and the knowledge and confidence to go it alone. and  10 hours for 300 euros. after that 60 euros per hour.

Your own group at your venue

If you are in the Beziers, Narbonne, Pezenas or Montpellier area I will come to you if you have a group of at least four people. The rate would be 10 euros per person per hour. Plus expenses if over 30 km from my home.

Sole occupancy: If you have a group and want to take up all of the accommodation at my local venue 'Maison Quarante' contact me to discuss availability and fee.
