Experience the joys of the Dordogne on one of our painting holidays. Trips and excursions to the very best historical and pictorial sites of the Dordogne region to allow you to paint plein air under the expert guidance of our guest artists.
Typical day during our painting holidays
Plein air painting holidays are our speciality. Our bilingual guides along with our guest artist take you to visit all the sites you could want to see in the region. With your sketch pad or camera to record your images of magical medieval castles or towns, you can then enjoy a picnic in the shade of a walnut grove or by the river. On return to Perigord Retreats, enjoy a leisurely swim in our salt water pool or wander around the gardens before settling down in the studio. Aperitifs followed by a luxury dinner – what a way to spend a day!
Peace and tranquillity
Your surroundings are second to none. We offer total peace in a natural environment to allow you to think freely and create your personal masterpiece. Take your easel and position yourself under one of the oak trees in the truffiere and paint some of our wonderful trees, flowers and shrubs. Look back on your photo images and recreate what you have seen in the ambience of our gardens.
Available 24 hours a day and exceptional lighting conditions, you will find our studio meets your every needs. Acrylics, watercolours, whatever your medium, you will find we can provide suitable facilities for you to just focus on the creative side.
