As we keep saying, life is too short not to go sketching in a glorious South of France village.
That's why Annette has put together some stunning Short Sketch Breaks right here in the village of Quarante where she lives. Quarante is quintessentially French with narrow cobbled streets, a lively village café and winemaking at its heart. There’s a sketch at every corner.

Maison Quarante is a majestic Grande Maison at the top of the village dating back to 1805. Fully renovated with modern luxuries the house is now a lovely bed and breakfast with magnificent gardens and one of the venues for Annette's short stay holidays in 2019.
With huge rooms and a large private garden and pool it has plenty of space to relax and unwind.
It's rated 9.4 on too! 

Quarante is only a short bus-ride from the Canal du Midi and busy market towns, so it's a great place to enjoy rural Languedoc within easy reach of French life at a faster pace.

Annette has planned the Travel Sketching Adventure holidays so you can have wonderful days exploring and sketching different locations and you don't even need a car!
