Ideal for: A weekend away with the girls, History lovers, Photographers, Francophiles, Foodies

Treat yourself to a sketching weekend in this vibrant, cultural and historic city – you won’t regret it!  Montpellier is not just one of France’s most sought after destinations, it offers an incredible amount of sketch subjects – from majestic buildings and classic French architecture to luscious green parks, street cafés and let’s not forget the food and fabulous wine!

For this weekend break we’ll be based in the heart of the city – La Place de la Comédie.  From here we’ll start by getting to grips with some of the basics of sketching on location – ideal for beginners or a great refresher if you’ve already got some drawing or painting experience.  We’ll be exploring the city through our sketches, learning a whole pack of tips and tricks about perspective, colour, adding people to your drawings and of course, making memories about this incredible area of France!

The city is known for being pedestrian and bike-friendly with close to 200 km of paths and a great tram network, so it’s easy to get around without a car. With an international airport it’s also incredibly accessible from almost anywhere – and you can also catch a high-speed train to or from Paris, or even drive from London or Barcelona!

Where to stay:

I suggest somewhere within walking distance of La Place de la Comédie. There are several hotels and apartments including:

Hotel de la Comédie
Grand Hotel du Midi Montpellier
Ibis Montpellier Comédie
Best Western Plus Comédie Saint Roch
