Painting Holiday in Manzac, SW France
1st September 2020 - 8th September 2020
Tuesday 1st September – Tuesday 8th September 2020
I have the opportunity to lead a painting holiday in SW France and I very much hope that this will be of interest to you and that you will join me on what will be a special holiday of painting and relaxation.
Our hosts will be Giles and Louise Nevill who moved to France in 2003 and spent five years restoring an old farm, Manzac d’en Bas, in the beautiful, peaceful and unspoilt countryside of the Ariege with spectacular views of the Pyrenees. For lots of pictures and much more information on their venue, please visit their website – www.manzac.com
They have been hosting painting holidays since 2008 and have considerable experience in hosting these holidays to a very high standard as can be seen from their 230+ Excellent Tripadvisor reviews which can be viewed on the following link – https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g1484792-d1453136-Reviews-Manzac_d_en_BasCastex_Ariege_Occitanie.html
The peacefulness and beauty of the surrounding countryside and the flexibility of the very comfortable gite accommodation make Manzac the ideal location for painting holidays. Importantly, there is also a great range of subject matter to suit all interests – beautiful countryside and rivers, interesting architecture in the local, mediaeval towns and villages, and great flowers. In addition, in 2012, Giles and Louise included a purpose-built 50m2, light, spacious, fully equipped studio which has proved to be an invaluable asset for our exclusive use.
Our holiday will be all-inclusive and include accommodation, food and drink (wine and beer etc) throughout the week [less two visits to local restaurants which are payable at the time]. It also includes transport, both to and from the airport, and locally to painting locations and restaurants. Ideally, our holiday group will include 10 to 12 people (including me as your tutor!)
The price per person per week for the Manzac aspects of the holiday (less two visits to local restaurants which are payable at the time) – ie. accommodation, food, drink and transport, is €850. For those guests who share a room, then each person will benefit from a 10% discount – a rate of €765 per week.
The price for my tuition would be £300 for the week
For non painting partners the charge will be £100 for the week
Flights would be an additional cost….Giles is very clued up on all this information and as soon as the flight information for those dates are available, he would let us know which flight and cost
NB Dietary requirements at Manzac
Giles and Louise are able to cater with, and are very experienced in, most dietary requirements including vegetarian, gluten free and lactose intolerant. However regrettably, they are unable to accept anyone who has a severe nut allergy or who is vegan – apart from anything else, the restaurants locally are completely unable to cater for these requirements.
Are you tempted?
Why not join me for this holiday and enjoy a week with no cooking, cleaning, washing up, shopping, endless distractions from the phone / internet etc – just the opportunity to have a break, have a great holiday with like-minded friends and indulge yourself in your painting in the comfort of Manzac and the Ariege …with fabulous tuition!
