Les Soeurs Anglaises in France is one of our very favourite locations for a getaway with a purpose. The second 'workshop' this year (June 2 to 8 inclusive of travel) is being run by the amazing embroiderer Susie Cowie, best known for her beautiful work featured in Young Victoria. Less known are her commissions for Margaret Howell, Anthropologie, GAP and Banana Republic. Fly out to France by Ryan Air (Ugh! but it can be done for less than £50 if you are a canny booker), be chauffeur driven to and from the luxury 'boutique' hotel, and luxuriate in your own en suite room in an art filled 'home' surrounded by landscaped gardens. Make use of one of the two heated outdoor pools, enjoy the home cooked food and hand picked wines and at the same time learn an exciting new skill. These are some of the most affordable and luxurious breaks we have ever enjoyed and we will be going back for more.
