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. 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 returned home.

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