A word from the founders...

We came to France twenty years ago with the ambitious idea of creating an artist's retreat. Our friends were unconvinced -but now they say how lucky we were to find this amazing setting in one of the most beautiful regions of Southwest France.


 These pictures show part of our story-the descriptions will also help you visualise this special place. We moved to France to create a home away from home for artists. Throughout our time here we have made extensive and sympathetic renovations to the property to realise our ambitious intention. Le Vieux Couvent is now an inspiring and comfortable venue for our thriving business.


A long list of artists have been happy painting and teaching here. Many return with their students year after year.


We will happily share the full wealth of our experience of organising and hosting painting holidays, should the new owners wish to continue to run Le Vieux Couvent as an artist's retreat. 


Read on and discover how and why Le Vieux Couvent could be the perfect business opportunity for you.
