  • Description

    La Liberté the name of Linda’s home in France translates as “freedom”, which you will find here in Autignac, built in 1830, the restoration era, in the Baron Haussmann style and decorated in the style of that period.




    Bedrooms are twins or double, of a good size, furnished to suit the style of the house and each have their own bathroom. Your rooms are comfortable to sit in, though you have communal space including the terrace to sit. If you like your own space you can find a quiet corner.


    Breakfast will be served in the dining room or on the terrace, as will evening meals taken at home.


    Each holiday is loosely themed:


    25 April - 2 May - Painting Plein Air in the Spring


    30 May - 6 June - Painting with Freedom


    5 -12 September  - Painting the Vendage in L'Herault


    17 - 24 October - Walking and Sketching Autumn


    Autignac is in the area known as "Avant-Mont du centre Hérault" and it really is before the mountains between L’Herault and L’Orb rivers, a village of wineries, many chateaux, and pretty corners. Only 20 minutes from the Mediterranean coast, and the city of Beziers, we will also paint in the foot hills of the Massif Central which give this area of Occitanie it’s unique climate.

    Painting locations include stunning Roquebrun on the l’Orb, La Covertoirade an unspoilt knights templar village in the mountains, the flower market and cathedral in Beziers, Pezenas market and town full of artisan studios and brocantes and a trip to paint the boats at the coast and many others.


    There is be a large studio space at the house to use in the times we are not out on location if you wish to paint before we go out or into the evening


    Each  day  includes  demonstrations, tuition and critiques with  Linda,  
    All abilities welcome
