enjoy a painting retreat in an authentic village
We are Jean-Louis and Fiona, a French-Australian couple who followed our dream to live in the south of France, in the beautiful and historic village of Jouques, situated in the heart of Provence.
We’re passionate about slow-living, being creative, hosting like-minded travellers, and sharing our knowledge and experience.
We work as a team to make our art workshops informative and as enjoyable as possible and to help our guests relax and embrace the local lifestyle.
We’d love to share some of this with you.
If you're looking for authentic - we know a place . . .
We offer a considered selection of art experiences, such as our one-day drawing and painting workshop, a four-day painting retreat which includes accommodation; plus the option to add our guided tour in Aix-en-Provence, to visit museums and galleries.
We've transformed an old barn into an inviting studio-gallery; a light, bright and wonderful place to create art. Join us for a workshop and you too could be making art here! We welcome visitors to come and and say hello and view our current collection of work.
Our ancient stone house sits between two lanes in one of the oldest parts of the village. We have two recently renovated guest suites, tastefully decorated in Provençal style. The guest kitchen-dining room has views over old roof-tops and there's a guest library - all connected by a magnificent spiral staircase and loads of character!
