Event description
You are invited on a magical journey to explore your creativity, delight your senses, soak up French culture, & savor the art of living well

About this Event

Artisans making copper vessels, a 400 year old French market, mountains, rivers, waterfalls, scenic drives, vintage flea markets, historic landmarks, hidden ruins, covetable treasures, delectable food, dreamy landscapes, and the art of French Floral Design...

These are just some of the sights that await you in France during the Fall of 2020.

During our weeklong getaway to the South of France, we savor the art of living well in the unspoiled, medieval, artisan village of Durfort. Located at the base of a mountain gorge, and with a population of only 200 residents, the village is seemingly untouched by time. We will spend our days gathering and foraging flowers in the countryside, making bouquets and headpieces for on-location, outdoor, styled photo shoots, sketching and photographing our creations, and exploring the surrounding villages and towns. We will visit the famed French flea markets for treasures...as well as a 400 year old outdoor market, named one of the prettiest in France! We will explore the countryside, and the sunflower fields...and we will enjoy farm-to-table meals prepared for us in an authentic, French kitchen. We will also savor picnics, French wine & cheese, and delightful French Cafes.
