Discover a new landscape...

Enjoy this inspirational location and be inspired by the Lot & Garonne in all its glory...

A land of contrast; of rivers & wide valleys of deep gorges and tumbling streams, rolling fields of sunflowers and plum orchards as far as the eye can see.  Medieval bastide towns perching on top of hills with views all around of rolling, rolling countryside.  A land steeped in history with chateaux & castles. ​ 
Art Holidays in Glorious South West France

My family & I have owned Domaine de Gigan for almost 17 years.  It is our family home in France and much loved by us all..

Set in a private enclave of three homes, the houses are let during the holiday season as luxury Gites through Alastair Sawdays & Tots to Travel - so you can be sure of the quality of all that we offer.

The Lot & Garonne is a region much loved by artists and nature lovers alike.  Domaine de Gigan is the perfect location to enjoy a relaxing holiday sketching and painting in this unique region.

Our Art courses are run by artists with a wealth of experience and are designed to inspire both experienced artists and beginners to realise their talent.

For something different join us for a fabulous week of wellbeing & pilates, Naomi & Angela will lead you through a week of activities, classes & private tuition which will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed for the challenges ahead.

The week long holidays run Saturday to Saturday (other than Kevin's 2019 course which is Tuesday to Tuesday) and we will generally spend the first few days sketching & painting around the Domaine, enjoying the rolling Lot & Garonne countryside and the historic windmill close to home.

Later in the week we will venture further afield and explore the River Lot, perhaps the bastide village of Penne d'Agenais with its hilltop basilica or take in a local market at Monflanquin or Eymet with all the colour of daily French life.
