My husband, son and I have lived in this breath taking area of Gascony in South West France (often called 'the Tuscany' of France) for over 15 years. We run gite holidays and for the last 5 years, painting and drawing holidays from our lovely stone farm house, La Salle. I have had a lifelong interest in art which developed from childhood and continues today. I paint regularly in oils and soft pastel in my studio here, and sometimes take commissions. Our weekly painting holidays are taught by visiting professional artists while I concentrate on my second passion, cooking many of the delicious regional dishes for which France is famous and which will be included in the menus accompanied by local wines and aperitifs. Bienvenue et bon apetit.
