Painting of Chateau Ladausse by Jon Sephton

The Artist's Retreat

The watercolour artist's retreat is designed to be useful and instructive, but above all, enjoyable.

Here is an example of a very flexible plan, which is intended as a sample of what we might do depending on the group size, experience, preferences and weather.

Free time will also be built into the program, or dip in and out as you wish. Guests may also relax at the pool, weather permitting.

Feel free to extend your stay at the chateau before or after the program. Please contact us for more information.
