I had teamed up with ‘True Alpine’ to offer watercolour painting holidays in one of the most beautiful alpine locations in the French Alps.  True Alpine were passionate about their holidays.  

You were treated to a 5 star experience.  The scenery was awe-inspiring and the subject matters were suitable for all levels and tastes.

The Chalet had been renovated to the highest standard and that added to mouth watering food & wine in a homely and welcoming atmosphere made a complete package.

True Alpine prided themselves on quality and exceptionally high standards without compromise, they had many years of experience working in an Alpine environment .

A thoroughly enjoyable experience and one not to have been missed.


Thank you Yvette for organising the trip for me and providing an excellent painting holiday.  I enjoyed the whole week and the Luxury stay at ‘True Alpine’.  Thank you so much.

Many thanks for the time and effort that you put in to make my time with you such a memorable occasion. Thanks once again for your help over the week.  It could not have been a better location, and the accommodation and standard of cooking was superb, as was the hospitality shown by Mark and Michelle.

All in all a great week.  If all the others enjoyed it as much as I did, you must have had a very happy bunch of guests.

Merci bien pour un tres agreeable semaine! Really enjoyed getting back into the painting even if I did find it rather challenging at times. Venues were superb, food delicious and weather was perfect. Yvette’s tuition was excellent and I felt she really knew how to coax and encourage me.  Your enthusiasm, support and understanding were limitless! You could not do enough for your students both from a teaching perspective and as a host.  I would thoroughly recommend the holiday to anyone.
