Well, from an artist’s point of view it is fantastic. The air quality is superb giving you crystal clear light, bright colours and the biggest blue skies you can imagine, making painting and sketching ‘plein air’ a real pleasure.

As far as the scenery is concerned you have a wide choice of subject matter ranging from historic old villages, ancient monuments, canal side views, mountains, beaches, vineyards and………………….You can tell I’m pretty enthusiastic about the area.  A painters paradise! And all within easy reach of Quarante where I am based.

The climate is one of the best in France, with an average of 2750 hours/300 days of sun each year and an average rainfall lower thanthat of Provence.  The summers are hot and sunny, the winters dry and mild, and it only rains at night – most of the time!  Regional weather
