Channel Islands • GuernseyPainting & Walking Holiday
Slide show with 3 images
The Channel Islands may be a part of Britain, but they are secluded enough to feel a world away. On this trip, walkers enjoy a variety of guided trails around Sark and Guernsey, while painters revel in the lushness these islands offer.
Day 1 - Arrival day
Arriving in Guernsey, we transfer to our hotel. The painters begin with a session in the hotel’s gardens, while the walkers set off for a tour of Saint Peter Port.
Day 2 - Forts and walks
This morning we head to Castle Cornet, a striking 13th century fort. Painters set up their canvases in the grounds, while walkers take a guided 2-hour stroll to the south-east tip of the island. Later, we all walk to Victor Hugo's Hauteville House.
Day 3 - To Sark
This morning we take the ferry to Sark. The walkers enjoy a route from the pier to the peninsula of Little Sark. They continue to the island’s eastern lighthouse. The painters venture to the gardens of La Seigneurie, for a day of painting
Day 4 - Painting Candie Gardens
For the walkers today is free to be spent at leisure. For the painters, the morning involves a painting trip to Candie Gardens, an award-winning site admired for its fine views and restored Victorian styling. The afternoon is then free for them too.
Day 5 - The great outdoors
Painters make their way to Bordeaux Harbour. The walkers enter the open nature reserve of L’Ancresse Common, walking from here to the 19th-century Fort Doyle, and then on to the marina, where the entire group reconvenes to eat.
Day 6 - South Coast Cliffs
The South Coast Cliffs this morning – a picturesque spot to be painted and walked. Later the painters prepare for a showcase of their own work this evening, the walkers enjoy free time. The exhibition is followed by dinner and drinks.

After polishing off our breakfast, we transfer to the airport and fly home
