Accommodation and other facilities
We can host up to 7 artists in the gite next door where you will have cooking facilities, for breakfast and dinner, (although we can provide dinner at Le Relais at extra cost).
We will provide a simple lunch & refreshments every working day for all the artists at Le Relais
We are an English speaking household, and 3 of the 6 of us speak good French.
We have our own children, so partners and children are welcome.
Bikes are available for hire very locally.
Services that we can offer: (see below for additional costings)
Film maker, Tony Wadham can document (video and edit) your work at agreed times within the residency.
Charlotte or Heni can lead explorative movement sessions to facilitate a creative process.
We have found that informal discussion over a meal is stimulating in a creative process. If this feels right we can offer an evening meal.
