Classroom Abroad: Paris and the south of France, September 30 - October 11, 2015
Registration is open for this year’s Classroom Abroad with Maryanne Grebenstein and The Abbey Studio. We’ll fly from Boston as a group – destination: Paris, France. Perhaps the only thing better than spending some time in Paris enjoying the cafés, shops, scenery, and museums in this incredible city is following it up with a week in the south of France! After three days in Paris, we’ll travel by TGV train to the lovely town of Mandelieu in the south of France. Mandelieu has the geographic good fortune to be situated between Nice and San Tropez. In Mandelieu, we'll be staying at Château de la Napoule for one week. To say that Château de la Napoule is beautiful is an understatement. Located directly on the Mediterranean, the original structure was built in the 11th century. Our accommodations, studio space, and most meals will be at the château. Many beautiful sites and cities are within easy reach of La Napoule via regional train (directly across the street from the château). Our days will be structured so that mornings will be spent in guided studio time, with afternoons free to visit nearby cities such as Monaco, Nice, Cannes, Antibbes, San Tropez, and others. Photos and details about previous trips of this itinerary can be found on our website at www.theabbeystudio.com. Remember that it is not a requirement to participate in the studio time – if you have a travel partner (or even yourself!) who is interested in this trip but not the classroom portion, feel free to sign up. Also remember that the maximum number of registrants is eight people. The spots are likely to fill quickly, so don't wait to send in your deposit.
Pricing includes roundtrip airfare from Boston: $5900 Per Person single, $5600 Per Person Double Occupancy.
