 I don't know about you but when a young girl I dreamdt of castles in far off lands. Recently, the  delightful owners of the above chateau called and extended an invitation to bring our painting group to their 11,000 square foot gorgeous chateau in the Burgandy area of France. So here we go. Will you be one of the  6-8 special people selected to join us? The price is affordable and the accomodations superb. 

  Register below for more info. This is truly a remarkable place at an affordable price. It would be a pleasure to have you join in on this trip. Email me for details...
