La Creuzette’s Spring Palette

Art and nature is inseparable and it’s from this premise that we offer our guests a unique garland of experiences. You may choose either to paint with Louis Jansen van Vuuren in his wondrous rooftop studio or join the group on visits to the fragrant gardens on our itinerary: the world famous kitchen gardens of Villandry, Notre Dame D’Orsan and Appromont. The journey will take you through charming villages and impressive castles where time stood still.

In the studio the varied creative explorations will focus on various interpretations of spring flowers in aquarelle, acrylic and pastel techniques.
