It’s that time of year again ! After summer, when it’s starting to go darker and cooler, and we wish winter wasn’t quite so long ! When we start to think about something we can look forward to; like next year’s vacation !
So, we’ve just added our ‘art week’ guest’s comments for you to be able to see a little of what our art holidays were like for our guests during the previous two seasons (we started the art holidays in June 2018).
It’s been a LONG HOT SUMMER here in France ! We’ve had a lovely time with our art hungry clients. They’ve loved it ! We have been out and about to some lovely spots where great artwork has been created; and it has been lovely to see the enjoyment and satisfaction of our guests. This is a very satisfying kind of job; when guests have loved the easiness of what we can offer. Thanks to the lovely area in which we live, and the great weather that has graced us, year after year. Looking forward to Spring/Summer 2020 !!
We are now offering a day’s art, which can be booked for any week day Monday to Friday.
It includes everything you will need for your art.
09.00 – 09.30 coffee and croissant
2 course lunch served around 12.30
Tea and cake served in the afternoon
It is a great day out, and will get your creative juices flowing.
Sometimes, we busy people, forget that we can be artistic and really enjoy creating something beautiful. So don’t pass it by, have a go, it’s surprising how much you can learn and enjoy yourself at the same time; it’s just a matter of making some time for you !
The Weekend Break offering will be for Friday 17 May to Sunday 19 May, with Art Tuition on Saturday. The weather in mid-May is usually warm and sunny.
