11-15 June 2020 OR 24-28 SEPTEMBER 2020

As featured on the popular Channel 4 programme, ‘Escape to the Chateau DIY’ escape to the stunning French countryside. Fancy painting a sunflower or two, or perhaps a beautiful medieval village square? Allan has been running painting holidays for many years and has quite a following!


Four nights – all inclusive, in super-king size suites. Non-painters sharing, are very welcome at a reduced price. Based in the heart of the stunning southern French countryside, visiting quaint local villages and the surrounding area, Allan will be on hand to offer you as much (or as little!) guidance as you need to create some original pieces of art to take home.

Fully inclusive of all lessons, food & drink, excursions and Chateau accomodation. Courses are limited to a maximum of 8 guests for you to fully benefit from one-on-one tutoring. If your partner would like to come along but doesn’t want to participate in the painting, then they are very welcome to come along for just 450€.  There are lots of things to do in the area!
