Winter Residencies 2019-2020


I will be offering a limited number of winter residencies between late November 2019 and March 2020. These stays have the following conditions:

  • A minimum duration of one week, maximum two weeks
  • Self-catering or half-pension; full pension stays will not be available during this time
  • Residents must be capable of carrying logs for the fire and be happy to learn to run the wood stoves (there are two to be kept in – I’m happy to teach!). One wood stove is up a flight of stairs. Please do not expect a building heated to 25° (~70°) – this is an old stone building that comes with it’s own crankiness and the occasional draft.
  • A very generous amount of firewood is provided but if you require more wood than we provide this is at your own cost.
  • I cannot accommodate painters during the winter as I have no indoor studio space.
  • Residents -must- have travel insurance in case of major storms on either end of your trip.

Wildflowers in March

Winter in the foothills of the Pyrenees can be quite variable. It generally frosts lightly at night, though hard frosts do come, especially later in winter. We can also have amazingly sunny stretches with glorious views.  Snow has been rare the last few years but it can snow from time to time.

If you are a keen skiier, think about renting a car as we are just an hour from a few different ski resorts. There is a lot of nice walking to be done in the immediate area as well.

If you are interested in coming to Bordeneuve this winter, drop me an email at and I can answer any questions you may have.
