Travel Advice

The location of the workshops is in northern Provence in an area known as the Drome.  It is very rural and the towns and village are very small.  We will be located at the foothills of the French alps surrounded by fields of lavender and sunflowers.  Our painting locations are all very close by and require short travel distances.  It will be maditory that you rent a car for transportation to and from the B&B, painting locations and workshop activities.  For participants who cannot drive, efforts are made to put you in touch with other participants to share a car.  It is also encouraged to take some time off for your own personal day trips.

You can get to our destination in a number of ways, if you look on a map, but the simplest way is to fly into Paris and take a train or plane to Lyon, France, where you can get a local train to Montelimar (the final destination).  You can also take a direct train to Montelimar from Gare de Lyon in Paris.  I will meet all participants at the train station in Montelimar on the first day of the workshop, where you can pick up your rental car and follow me back to our B&B.

A very detailed list of travel instructions will be emailed to you upon receipt of your deposit, including: recommendations on travel reservations, car rental, what to pack, art supply list, identification requirements, how to get money while in France and what to expect of the weather while there.

Please feel free to contact me at any time for any further questions or concerns.
