Sketching for Foodies
Languedoc is France’s best kept secret. An area surrounded by vineyards as far as the eye can see, fabulous historic cities, beautiful Mediterranean beaches, stunning mountain trails and of course the world-famous Canal du Midi. Sketching inspiration is around every corner.
The 6-night Sketching for Foodies program combines sketching workshops, cookery, food and wine-tasting – it’s the perfect getaway for singles, couples and non-sketching partners. It gives you the opportunity to sketch scenes of this colourful region while discovering the very best Languedoc has to offer. From your base in a comfortable and charming B&B in Quarante, we will travel through some of the most picturesque spots from the Mediterranean coast to the breathtaking Haut Cantons, and discover the rich cultural history of the area. We will meet artisan producers and winemakers, sample the rustic traditional charcuterie and enjoy comparative tastings of regional olive oils made from the indigenous varieties.
You’ll lunch at many venues favored by the locals. Along the way, you will become a skilful sketcher, an astute wine connoisseur and get first-hand knowledge of the region’s cuisine through hands-on cooking classes and demos.
