Known all over the world for its beauty, Provence is the artist's dream destination. During the days, we will explore Luberon, and its spectacular countryside of vineyards and orchards, fascinating "perched" hill-top villages, outstanding natural produce and the light of Van Gogh and Cezanne. You will soon see why artists of all calibers are drawn to this alluring area.

The architecture of Bonnieux, which was a papal town for about 500 years, has kept all its authenticity, its fountains and washhouses, its old church - and a view that is worth it all.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP AND THE AREA:

 

We will stay in the Medieval town of Bonnieux, located in the Luberon part of southern France. The town is situated on a steep cliff with many hilly streets and overlooks the valley below.

The architecture of Bonnieux, which was a papal town for about 500 years, testifies to the prestige of its inhabitants over the centuries: ecclesiastical dignitaries, counts, lords... up until the modern times of the 19th century. The village has kept all its authenticity, its fountains and wash-houses, its old church and a view that is worth it all.

Our excursions include visits to Roussillon with the world famous Ochre trail and mines, Lourmarin, with a market that has EVERYTHING(!), and l'Isle sur la Sorgue, with its distinctive water wheels!
