enjoy a painting retreat in our beautiful village
We are Jean-Louis and Fiona, a French-Australian couple who followed our dream to live in the south of France, here in the beautiful and historic village of Jouques, in Provence.
We’re passionate about slow-living, art, hosting travellers and sharing our knowledge and experience of living in Provence.
We love to make our art workshops and retreats informative and highly enjoyable. We also provide beautiful accommodation where our guests can relax and embrace life in a French village.
If you're looking for authentic - you've come to the right place
We offer a considered selection of art experiences, one-day workshops and five night residential retreats. The Provence we present is authentic - a relaxing place where you can enjoy a genuine village experience with great hospitality.
We've transformed an old barn into an inviting studio-gallery - a light, bright space. Join us for a workshop or retreat and you too could be creating art here. If you're in Provence, do come by to see our current art collection.
Our ancient stone house sits between two lanes in one of the oldest parts of Jouques. Choose from two tastefully renovated guest suites, decorated in Provençal style. Our guest kitchen-living room has views over old roof-tops, plus there's a charming guest library - all connected by a magnificent spiral staircase and loads of character.
