Maison Verte 19th July - 26th July 2014

Two exciting courses running at the same time!

Art with Karen Stamper - Painting with Francis Boag

Stay in a traditional 19th century wine maker’s mansion in Roujan, a two acre haven of grand old buildings,...

Refresh, recharge, relax…

Picture a house in the French countryside among the rolling hills, gentle views and sleepy villages where you wake to the sound of cicadas and church bells. Stay in a traditional rural Maison with twin, double, triple and single rooms where comfort and rest is a priority.

Refresh, recharge and relax as you learn to draw and paint and improve your yoga practice in a supportive, creative and inspiring environment.

             “La vie fantastic! Just what the doctor ordered – fun, sun and and lots of art ideas and take home to perfect. It was very relaxing, even when stretching at all angles!”

Afternoons are free to sit in the shady gardens, relax by the pool or return to the studio (swimming in the river is an option at Gardoussel)

This holiday is ideal for single travellers, partners with different interests, accomplished painters, or novices who want to learn in a sunny climate with like-minded people. Through structured discovery, a change of environment and interchange of ides you will soon find your own personal means of expression.

            “A terrific week. Lots of new art ideas and a relaxed atmosphere in which to practice. Lovely company and many new experiences. Delightful in every respect.”

Your welcome on an Art and Yoga holiday is always warm and personal. We offer a high standard of hospitality, tuition and superb value for money. Once you have arrived at the house there is nothing else to pay, you can put your wallet away for the week. Karen will organise your pick up so sit back and relax, this really is an all inclusive holiday.

           “Lovely, lovely, lovely, lovely, lovely – I think that kind of sums it up!”

The south of France is the ideal destination. The climate is not too hot, journey time is short – easily accessible via Ryanair, Eurostar or by car.
