Our base at "Bokonneg" is in the heart of Brittanny and is attractive as a painting subject in itself; the site offers an open sided barn in which to work up paintings in shelter, superbly decorated rooms, and a communal kitchen area ; we will have a sectioned trailer to enable everyone to bring as much art material as they want separate from luggage, so we should be able to cope with oil painters as well as watercolourists - but no warranty is implied against bumpy roads
