While you are in France here are some side trips you may want to consider adding to your travel:

  • In Paris, Fran and Carol plan to fly into Paris a few days early for sightseeing then take the train to Toulouse to meet any travelers who will be flying directly into Toulouse.

  • For those who plan to visit Paris first, we will leave a couple of seasoned travelers too accompany you on the train to Gourdon where you will be picked up.

  • Other travel possibilities include Provence or the wine region.​

Your $3,500 fee includes:

  • Pick up and return to Toulouse or the train station at Gourdon
  • Daily watercolor and mixed media instructions with Carol and Fran
  • Daily excursions to places such as the market at Cahors, Rocamadour and Saint Cirq Lapopie
  • Visit to a lavender farm which should be in bloom!
  • All meals and daily apertifs except three lunches and one dinner
  • A picnic on the riverbank after visiting a castle
  • Non-painters will also find it a great adventure.​

When you step through the gates of Le Vieu Couvent in Frayssinet France, you will know you are in a special place.  Your 10 day stay includes private rooms with baths and wonderful French food and wine along with a fully equipped studio.
