I hope you've had a chance to see pictures and reports I've been posting about my town in France. It's a very special place; beautiful, historic, friendly, full of life, busy with people making great wines, sharing good food, enjoying true joie de vivre. The town is Saumur, located in the western part of the Loire Valley about 2 hours by train from Paris. Now a friend and I are getting together to offer a very special opportunity this September, a 5 day ART RETREAT in and around Saumur. Mandy will provide accommodations at her elegant, townhouse, I will be the art leader, and we'll share our love of Saumur.
If you join us, you'll stay in a beautiful, luxurious town house, enjoy delicious meals, and have the creative fun of drawing, sketching, and painting in the historic town, at the castle, along the river, and in nearby villages.
Dates for the first Loire Valley ART Retreat are September 5 to September 10. This is a very special group retreat, limited to 4 singles or couples sharing a bedroom. Accommodations all have private bathrooms, and participants can freely enjoy the gracious home and lovely garden. September is a beautiful time of year in the Loire Valley - think about joining us!

I've prepared a pdf brochure with all the delightful details. If you're interested and would like more information please email me at email@example.com and I'll send it right out to you.
