Non-Participating Partners

Come along and enjoy a 5 night stay in real France with your painting partner.


Nestled in small villages in the rural French countryside both guest houses offer a great base for non-participating partners to explore the area or relax in their grounds. The Limousin region is defined by its’ chestnut and oak forests, rolling hills and the Limousin cattle grazing. It is rich in history and culture.



Every corner you turn in this area you are faced with another little lake, a gentle meadow lined with hedgerows or a quaint old village with its church, market place, boulangerie and perhaps a few tables out on the pavement enticing you to stop for a cup of something nice.


As residents of the Haute Vienne we are constantly delighted by it as an off the beaten track destination. It offers gentle landscapes and pace of life to the more dramatic breathtaking, refreshing vistas across the hills and forests framing the most glorious sunrises and sunsets. This region is really the last area of France to be ‘discovered’ and it has been labelled ‘Hidden France’.




There’s lots to see and do in the Haute Vienne and surrounding area. For a full list of places of interest and activities in the area please visit our The Limousin Region page.



You will be able to join the art itinerary taking in Lac de St Pardoux and local villages. We can also take you to nearby stations to link to larger towns such as La Souterraine or our nearest city Limoges. Car rental is available from Limoges airport and local supermarkets should you want to explore further afield.
