Professionally tutored 7 and 10-day painting and drawing courses
Gascony Painting Holidays are held at Le Grand Barbe, an 18thC farmhouse near the small medieval town of Marciac, home of artists Jamie and Suzie Peters.
Gascony is surprisingly tourist-free, as it boasts some of the finest countryside in France. Painters and non-painters alike are inspired by the stunning views of hilltop ‘bastides’ (fortified villages), fields of maize and sunflowers, terracotta-roofed farmhouses and the spectacular views of the Pyrénées; this area is popularly known as the 'Tuscany of France'.
The atmosphere is friendly and informal and, having escaped the day-to-day stresses of life, you will be given every encouragement to relax and do as much or as little work as you wish. Non-painting partners are also very welcome.
Untutored painting breaks and B&B are also available throughout the year, excluding tutored holiday dates - for more details see the 'Dates and Prices' page.
