Unfortunately we have had to postpone our plans for painting holidays in 2020 due to the COVID 19 Pandemic. Our hope and intention is to offer the holidays for September 2021. We will keep everyone as best informed as we can. In the interim we wish you all well and ask you to bear with us and stay safe.
When we can, please join us for inspiring and unforgettable Painting Holidays based in the heart of Loire Valley, France. Based on a comfortable private estate and led by experienced tutors. Our painting holidays have a fun and easy-going atmosphere and are accompanied by great French food & wine!
Accommodation for Painting Loire – Painting Holidays is based in the comfort of a renovated ancient mill, Moulin de Maulne. Standing on 30 acres of its own land and situated in the heart of the Loire Valley. As well as the comfortable accommodation there is a private drive, swimming pool and open views in all directions.
We welcome non-painting partners as well, who can enjoy the 12m x 6m heated swimming pool, sightseeing and wine-tasting. There are plenty of cycling and hiking paths, and lots of things to do in local Loire Valley area. Or perhaps simply wander around and relax on the estate and its grounds.
Your meals (breakfasts, dinners as well as your Lunch Basket) are provided each day of your stay, including on your free-day (the fifth day of your Painting Loire Painting Holiday).
Breakfast : Every day, between 8:30 AM and 9:30 AM your continental breakfast is available for you in recently restored barn’s hall. It consist of selection of French pastries, cold meats, bread, butter and jam, tea and coffee, orange juice.

Every course will be accompanied by a selection of regional AOC wines from the local artisanal wine producers. Most of the vegetables and aromatic herbs come from our own organic kitchen garden.
Every day our program starts at 10:00 AM. For each of our days visits we will travel in a chauffeured air-conditioned comfortable vehicle. Non-painting partners are welcome to participate in all meals and non-painting course activities (for example: wine tasting).
