What you'll do

Arrival

Upon arrival at Toulouse airport, you will be picked up and driven to the Champagne House. After being shown to your room and settling in, you will be told the layout for the day and you will have the rest of the day to relax and explore the beautiful grounds.

Your Mobile Photography Retreat

Each day follows the same structure, however the locations you photograph, the places you visit and where you have meals varies from day to day.

To start your day you will have a luxury continental breakfast in the kitchen or on the terrace, and discuss the plan for the day with Mathew for the photography packed day ahead.

After breakfast you will be taken to your location/s for your photography session, and have a chance to explore some of the amazing villages and locations Gascony has to offer.

We will break for lunch and go to a local restaurant (lunch including wine, maybe a picnic depending on the location).

Your second photography session of the day may start early or late in the afternoon and will continue into the evening so that you can experience the variable photographic conditions.

There will be a number of visits to some amazing Chateaux, ancient monuments, Bastides and UNESCO heritage sites.

Depending on the day and weather, you might continue shooting at the photo-shoot location or come back to Champagne House to carry out some photo editing, manipulation and group discussion with Mathew.

At the end of the day, there will be some free time to relax, walk and explore the wonderful, vibrant town, including its spectacular Cathedral, cloisters, Armagnac museum, parks, cafes, Aurian distillery, the River Baise and much more.

A light evening meal will be served on six of the evenings.

Departure

After a final breakfast at the Champagne House, you will be transferred back to Toulouse airport, where you will catch your flight home taking some great memories and amazing photos back with you.
