French Chateau Holiday 2024

Exclusive (inclusive!) painting holiday in a French Chateau.  5 nights, 4 days tuition.

Each year Charlie takes a small group of three people, by car, to Chateau Quesmy. Set in the Picardy countryside, this moated chateau sits in  landscaped gardens and there is a covered, heated swimming pool. Rooms are single occupancy (unless you are a couple!), en suite and furnished to a very high standard.

Pickup Sunday June 2nd to drop off Friday 7th June 2024. Sorry, this holiday is now FULL.

We cannot promise that Charlie will be able to pick you up and drop you off at your door as he has done in the past., Each year, the traffic has become more atrocious and Charlie’s journey time has increased. However, he will do his best and when we know who the clients are, and where they live, we will work out the best route to suit everyone..

The cost is £1,300 and a non-refundable deposit of £100 is required to secure a place. The balance will be due 8 weeks before departure.

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).

This painting holiday is truly luxurious. You are picked up by car on Sunday and taken to France by ferry. All meals (including wine with the evening meal) are provided as well as four days painting tuition. Extra drinks from the bar at the Chateau or at cafes while out on location must be paid for separately. 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 returning home.

If you wish to enquire about making your own way there and joining the group, please contact us at the office.
