With her local knowledge, Erin has found a rural paradise to run her classes and host her holiday.
You will be staying in our own 19th century private “Domaine” in prestigious air-conditioned apartment rooms with en-suite bathrooms, terraces, balconies or courtyards and you will be hosted by two lovely French sisters who run their own oenology (wine) estate nearby.

Anyone who loves to be creative – or would like to be – is welcome on this Learn to Sketch holiday. We all learn at our own pace and share a common camaraderie with lots of support, encouragement and fun whilst enjoying exquisite surroundings and learning a skill for life to take back with us.

Visit and learn to sketch beautiful sandstone cobbled market towns such as Lagrasse


Each day we will learn how to sketch aspects of the stunning region of Languedoc. An ancient region rich in history, this area is like Provence 30 years ago with its medieval hump bridges and covered market places, vast vineyard landscapes, immense architectural abbeys, Cathar mountain-top fortresses and Unesco World Heritage Canal du Midi as well as the legendary fortified city of Carcassonne.

What do I Need to Bring?

After booking your trip and nearer the time of travel we give you a list of what to pack and what simple kit to purchase for your Erin Hill Sketching Holiday.


Ask French Fusion Travel to book any flights for you if you require once you know exactly which dates you want to travel and from which airports.

JUNE  10.  The tour starts with welcome drinks at our “Domaine” estate at 6 pm (but check in is any time after 1 pm this day)
We recommend people arrange to arrive at Perpignan (airport or train station) as this will facilitate us organising a group transfer to bring you to the Domaine.
As people will be arriving at different times from various places by different transport we shall wait to see how we can best assist your transfer to Fabrezan (1.5 hours drive from Perpignan)

JUNE 19.  The tour finishes after breakfast from 11 am at our accommodation.
We have organised a transfer to Perpignan airport on our  final day  in time for those people who want to catch the 2.25 pm Air France flight direct to Paris Orly airport arriving 3.50 pm.  (This flight is not included in your tour package.)
***  Please ensure when booking your international flight for that day that you do not depart CDG Paris airport until at least 7.30 pm that same night to allow enough time to transfer between airports in Paris and check in for your international flight.
