Bordeneuve Retreat


Bordeneuve offers a unique residency to writers, artists and musicians seeking a moment of solitude, of inspiration and of birdsong. Nestled in a wild, unruly clearing in an oak forest, we provide individualized stays for a single artist or couple. Stays range from 2 weeks to 2 months and residents are lodged in a beautiful barn renovated with natural and recycled materials. We encourage people to work intimately with the rhythm of the seasons, to live very simply and to experience a quiet that one rarely finds in life.

A retreat at Bordeneuve is perfect for those wishing to spend a moment in very close proximity to nature. We provide a clean, open, clutter-less space where creativity has room to expand and breathe, where you can roam the woods, watch the birds, or paddle in a stream and let your project take form. Residencies can be self-catered or on full or half pension plans, with most produce coming from our own garden.


Betchat: France

Betchat is a tiny village in the foothills of the French Pyrenees. Situated in the heart of the confluence between Gascon, Occitane and Catalan culture, residents have access to Toulouse as well as to the high mountains. The residence is in a very remote spot with ample opportunity for walking, cycling and bird watching. We plan regular outings to local markets as well as other cultural events that may interest our guests.
