French Holidays

2019 dates to be arranged.

Each year Charlie takes two small groups of three people to Chateau Quesmy. Set in the Picardy countryside, this moated chateau sits in  landscaped gardens and there is a covered, heated swimming pool. This painting holiday is truly luxurious. You are picked up by car at your door on Sunday and taken to France by ferry. All meals (and wine with the evening meal) are provided as well as four days painting tuition. You will need your usual  kit for painting outside, including an easel or chair. You will be taken to a different location each day, unless it’s poor weather when there is an indoor area available. On Friday you will be returned home. If you wish to enquire about making your own way there and joining the group, please contact us at the office.

The cost is £1,200 and a non-refundable deposit of £100 is required to secure a place. Extra drinks from the bar at the Chateau or at cafes while out on location must be paid for separately. 

Either contact us by email ( or ring the office on 01670 760 030 (leave a message on the answerphone if there is no-one in the office and we will get back to you).
