South West France

Is there anything better than a 200-kilometer long sandy beach? Surfing in the Atlantic Ocean? Canoeing and sightseeing countless castles, ruins and fortified hamlets of the early Middle Ages? Or rather wander through the hilly Basque country, with its idyllic villages and Pyrenees summiteers? That's what's waiting for you in southern France! In addition to the Gasconian cuisine, which is considered the best in France and accompanied by one of the top wines from Bordeaux, southern France is an increasingly popular place for vacationers. It does not surprise us!

One of the regions of southern France, the so-called region of Occitania, confirms the beauty of South West France. The gorge of the river Tarn which lies in Occitania is also called "Gorges du Tarn". Parts of the gorge are protected, others are freely accessible. These offer plenty of recreational activities, such as rock climbing, hiking or water sports.

Do you also want to pack your backpack and depart into nature and be inspired by the most beautiful places in South West France, while reading? Do not hesitate to grab your sketchbook bring all that beautiful colors on paper!

Mark Warner, one of our great tutors, offers in a few days a course in the beautiful Tarn region.The course will focus on aspects of colour, line and composition.
