Next year I will be working with Giles and Louise who own the magnificent property at Manzac to bring you this exciting Painting Holiday in southern France June 2017 !

An Exciting Painting Holiday in the South of France 
at Manzac d'en Bas 22/29 June 2017

with Barry Herniman

Come and join me for an exciting week painting in this beautiful area of southern France overlooking the rolling countryside of the Pyrenees.

Manzac d'en Bas is set in really beautiful countryside with wonderful views of the mountains.In addition there are numerous excellent villages and other locations within a very short distance of Manzac for painting excursions.  Indeed, one hardly scratchs the surface of what there is available to paint here in a week long holiday!


Our venue for the  Painting Holiday is at Manzac d'en Bas, home of Giles and Louise , our hosts for the week.    Manzac d'en Bas consists of three gites which have all been recently renovated to a high standard and combine traditional charm with comfort and modern amenities.  In addition, the facilities on offer include a 13x6m swimming pool, a studio/summer games room and a two acre garden with a variety of outdoor spaces to relax, play, eat and socialise. Accommodation is in the gites where all the bedrooms are en-suite. They provide all meals, less two visits to local restaurants.  Wine, beer etc are provided throughout the week and are included in the price. Transport-wise, they have a car and a minibus which they use to complete airport transfers, and locally to painting locations and restaurants, again included in the cost of the holiday. It all adds up to a great Painting Holiday.
Don't just take my word for how good it is, check out their Tripadvisor page

Manzac d'en Bas is situated in the Ariège Department of the Midi Pyrenees Region in South West France. It sits in a spectacular location with stunning views across rolling countryside to the Pyrenees

The peacefulness and beauty of the surrounding countryside and the flexibility of the 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 .

The Studio   In 2012 they constructed a purpose built studio at Manzac in a location with spectacular views across the countryside to the Pyrenees. This spacious (50m2) and light studio is ideal for painting when the weather isn't conducive to painting en pleine-air - too wet, cold or indeed too hot.  When needed, it is heated by a wood burning stove.  Above all , found artists really appreciate having somewhere to put all their painting equipment and creations without having to tidy everything away each evening. 


The Ariege Department is one of France's best kept secrets and an undiscovered treasure with stunning countryside, colourful markets, pretty towns and villages, great wildlife, mediaeval Cathar castles, spectacular limestone caves as well as the stunning backdrop which is the Pyrenees... 

And we're here to PAINT IT !!!
