About Us – Why Choose Us?

We offer the most personalized tours. Here is how:

  • We only take very small groups (6-12 people max.).
  • We pick up at the airport, train station or hotel on the first day of the tour and provide transfers at the end. We don’t ask you to rent a car to reach our accommodation or to drive to painting sites.
  • We stay at the same accommodation for the week (one rare occasions, we change once) so no need to pack and unpack.
  • In terms of accommodation, we stay at a lovely B&B or a boutique hotel carefully chosen for the view, the charm or the host hospitality.
  • We provide private transportation in a mini van with A/C to painting and cultural sites.
  • A tour leader stays with the group at all times: we don’t leave the group and the teacher with a map to find their way in the villages. The guide stays with you at all times even while you paint in case you need anything. On some tours, she will also prepare the picnics.
  • Each painting location has been carefully researched in order to avoid crowds and to provide stunning views or authentic feel.
  • We do our best to provide personal attention and assistance to each person on the tour.
  • We do speak the language so you don’t have to.
  • We are professional.  We have been running tours since 2003.
  • ….and we are fun!!!!
