Gite with artist studio


virginia

Recommended Posts

I am an artist (painter) and would like to rent a gite long term next September with an artist's studio. Any ideas of how to find such a property on the internet? I have only found one in Mayenne with a studio and would prefer stay in Tarn where I can paint the gorges and rivers. My subject is land/water, and our relationship with the earth, expecially ecology.

Hi Virginia

Can I suggest looking at the Vallee Borgne for inspiration on finding a place.

There are lots of gite places in and around the villges here and you would be able to find some some through the tourist office.

I've been staying here for almost a year now and hope to get set up soon as a working, earning artist. I've been toying with the idea of setting up some sort of group of artists with similar themes in the area.

Best wishes

Heather

I rented this place for 3 years - it's like living in a Snow Whites house.  They have recently renovated the barn in the garden into a wonderful artists studio.  The lady who owns it is a painter.  I was always really inspired artistically while living here - it's out of this world.

We had a lovely time when we lived there, there's an outdoor shower that looks out over the fields and often in the summer I used to sneak up on my husband while he showered (from April to September!) and pretend that the shepherdess was passing by.  I used to make him jump out of his skin everytime!!!  She was like Manon out of Manon Des Sources and used to leave us vegetables and sunflowers outside our door.
