An 11 day tour with Erin Hill and your France expert Kate Stedman starting in Paris and ending in Toulouse.

Join Erin and francophile Kate for 3 fun nights in Paris and enjoy a more intimate side of sketching exciting Paris in the Springtime. Of course we will journal the icons of Paris but also sketch some memorable vignettes while drinking an aperitif in a grand mansion.


We fly down to Toulouse and then on to the picture-perfect Minervois region which is a world apart.  A land of of cypresses, cicadas and impressive mountain ranges with every view.  Minervois is an ancient Roman region of sunshine, sun-ripened sweet strawberries, blood-red poppies, wildflowers, vast  vineyards,  and fragrant markets of local fish, bread, pastries, fruit, olive oils and wine.  Our country chateau is on 140 hectares with lovely rural views. And of course, aperitifs lazing by the pool beckon us each day after sketching and adventuring.

All meals in our own chateau are provided and each room has its own bathroom facility.

Erin and Kate will teach you how to sketch, write in your journal and create a stunning book on your 11 day holiday. This is a holiday for all abilities - everyone is catered for and it makes no difference if you have never held a pen except for work! Everyone gets the same enjoyment and reward out of such a lovely Sketch Holiday and all will love it.
