Come and celebrate Canada’s birthday in the Cowichan Valley with a stay at Cobble House B&B, and check out some Canadian artists and artisans during the Visions Cowichan Valley Summer Tour & Sale from July 1 – 5. This annual tour is now in its 26th year and invites you to visit 20 artist studios from Mill Bay in the south to Saltair just north of Chemainus. The artists work in every medium and range from potters to painters, fabric arts to jewellery, photography to woodturning , painted glass to lampshades, and everything in between. Studios are open from 10-5 daily during the tour and brochures are available throughout the Cowichan Valley or you can find them online at the Visions Art Tour website.
The Cowichan Valley is a wonderfully relaxing place to wander around, either by car or on the bike. In between artist studios, you can check out the Saturday market in Duncan, and tour some of the Cowichan Valley wineries. Enjoy a glass of award winning wine while relaxing over lunch at Merridale Cidery’s La Pommeraie Bistro, Cherry Point Estate Wines Bistro, Thistles Cafe at Glenterra, and Vinoteca at Vigneti Zanatta. Locally grown produce and products are featured at many of the local restaurants, and we’re very fortunate in the Valley to have access to so many specialty products grown at home.
What better way to celebrate Canada and Canadians than a relaxing weekend in the beautiful countryside, tasting some canadian grown goodness!
