Please let me extend my personal thanks for such a great week on so many levels. As a vacation, our every need was catered to, from transportation, to food preferences, to dining (as part of a family) on meals prepared by one of the finest chef’s in my experience. Anna’s meals were always fresh and creative, always delicious and artfully presented. And the wine choices were carefully chosen to accentuate the Provençal culinary experience. On an artistic level, I learned so much from you, Tessa, about shedding my controlled style and allowing the exuberance and joy that this sunny clime invokes to flow freely from my brush to the paper. Every vista, vineyard, olive grove, sea village and market was more inspiring than the previous. And the farmhouse and wildflower meadow were my absolute favorites. Our week flew by far too quickly. I will certainly recommend this this corner of Provençal paradise to artists of any level. “Come to Tessa’s and be pampered.” – Marsha Bates, Kennewick, WA
