  • Description


    A Franco American Artist family bought a farm on a mountain in the south western part of France 60 years ago. Since then not a single chemical nor chemical product has set foot on the 25 acres of land surrounding the 4 buildings on top of a mountain. We are keeping it as pure as we can, we welcome artists to create. Now we need help making a couple of studios, one for painters, one for sculptors .there is access to wifi . This is a magical place. Very beautiful and wild. Everyone who has come here has wanted to come back.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travelers can have fluent English or French conversation, they will be able to use the art facilities, the space is absolutely beautiful, photographers go bananas here!! There are many walking paths, about 5 rivers and kayaking and canoeing all over the and parapet flying about 300 meters from house. The food is delicious, great cook on the spot.
    You will have your room. House has been restored, there are fireplaces, lots of space. A few bicycles for going around the area. And of course we will try to make everyone feel at ease and do what we can to make them welcome.
