Artistic Adventures are custom-designed experiences for painters and non-painters alike, who want to see France from an artist’s perspective. The common bond is an interest in seeing a slice of the French countryside, in depth, from a rented home base. Mornings are spent either painting or relaxing/exploring independently. Lunch is taken together at a local bistro en route to our afternoon sight-seeing destination. Dinner is shared back at our rented french home, relaxing together cooking dinner and regaling one another around the table.
Groups are limited to 6 participants, so we can all travel easily together. Prices include everything except air fare, personal shopping expenses and possible taxi from our final hotel back to airport: all other land travel from airport and on, room, three meals a day and any museum fees are included.

BRITTANY, NORMANDY AND PARIS 2018
Join me as I return to the quaint coasts of Brittany for a special Artistic Adventure. If you want to see cottages, gardens, castles and coastlines of the Atlantic, join me for this twelve day adventure! We’ll see bits of Normandy traveling back and forth to and from Brittany, where we’ll spend a week in the charming port of L’Aber Vrac’h, in the north-westernmost “Finistere” region of Brittany. Our trip concludes with two nights in Paris.

June 8: We meet in the morning at Charles de Gaul Airport, then head west to Chartres, where we’ll see the cathedral and spend the night.

Possible visits to Quimper, Pont Aven and some of the islands which dot this coastline. Stone plinths of Carnac, which rival Stonehenge, are within reach, as well.
