Art Holiday Accommodation in SW France Details

Tuesday, 3 February 2009


Smaller groups of between 6 to 8 people usually stay at La Petite Galerie, a fully restored but very old stone house set in a totally private walled garden in the small mediaeval hillside village of Mézin. This is the heart of Gascony in sunny South West France.

The house consists of:
* Three double bedrooms each with its own bathroom.
* A huge salon-dining room with exposed beams and three metre high windows.
* A fully equipped kitchen with two stoves, microwave and dishwasher.
* French doors lead to an open air eating area with BBQ, which makes outdoor meals a delight.
* The property also has off street parking and a garage.

My thanks to John for many of the photos on this blog.


  1. Ray...awesome blog...but I am not sure my pitiful drawing is worthy of inclusion. I need another glass of floc. John Brice

  2. That seems soo relaxing... and i guess that is what help to develop those art skills.. I would love to go on an art holiday because you are isolated and concentrate on painting and drawing skills.. I have attended just art workshops and these were very helpful...
