Autumn sketching holiday at Maison Quarante (6 nights)

Enjoy a few days capturing the beautiful scenery in and around the hill-top village of Quarante.

Whether you are already sketching or an absolute beginner, Annette will guide you through the ErinHill system step-by-step. You’ll produce your first sketch within an hour and will complete your stay with some great memories in your sketchbook!

Our sketching itinerary starts the evening of 7 September. Over the next 4 days we will start sketching in the morning and after lunch you then have a chance to explore the area on your own or do some more sketching.  There will also be a day free for you to relax or go sight-seeing. Quarante has a good range of local shops plus 2 cafés and an excellent restaurant within walking distance.

Materials: We will be using the ErinHill sketch kit (items will be available for you to use on loan if you do not have your own). You will need your own A5 spiral-bound sketchbook (110gsm) which can be purchased on arrival.


Maison Quarante was originally built in 1805, it has been carefully renovated with all modern facilities yet without losing it’s charm. The guest rooms are large, centrally heated, comfortably furnished with ensuite bathrooms and have a view of the village or the gardens and the rolling landscape or the vineyards beyond.

It has a spacious dining room with adjoining drawing room leading out onto the terrace where you can have breakfast overlooking the private pool and gardens.

Wi-Fi is available throughout the house, and there is ample free parking. Your host, Annika, will be able to drive you to and from our sketching locations, and can arrange dinner, wine-tastings and cookery classes in the evenings on request.
