Secluded in the foothills of the French Pyrenees, at the end of an ancient stone track, Bordeneuve is a rustic, woodland retreat for artists, musicians and writers. A place as intriguing as it is inspiring, as natural as it is nurturing,  Bordeneuve offers a unique and exceptional residency for creative spirits who seek to advance their projects while reconnecting with nature and simplicity.
