Accommodation & Food

 ‘Beautiful setting, great hosts and food and a comfortable studio’   November 2018


Staying at one of two charming French guest houses, La Traverse and Vue de Vallée, you will enjoy both their comfort and characters. Nestled in small rural villages both are tranquil havens offering a warm and friendly welcome. With spacious rooms and beautiful surroundings you can unwind and slow down to the pace of the Limousin.


Towels, toiletries and a hairdryer are provided in each room and drink making facilities and free WiFi are available at both houses. One guest house offers UK television in a shared lounge whilst the other offers a quiet reading room.  Please note all bedrooms are accessible by stairs.




France is renowned for its love of food and we place great importance on it too!  Wake up to fresh coffee and delicious pastries, two loves of France.

We will help sustain your artistic talents during the day with homemade cake and a hearty two course lunch. In the evening relax and let us treat you to our delicious four course ‘fait maison’ dinner, with wine.


On the final night of your stay you will sample more local delicacies and celebrate your artistic achievements of the week with a dinner at a nearby restaurant. Please note that this restaurant meal is not included in the price and is to be paid for by participants directly to the restaurant.

We are very happy to accommodate any specific dietary requirements with advance notice, just complete the relevant part of the booking form.

You can extend your stay with us at a heartily discounted rate, dependent on availability. B&B, a light lunch and 2 course evening meal with wine is 80€ (£70) for 1 person or 135€ (£120) for 2 people sharing a room.
