La Maison de Beaumont Residency

Beaumont-de-Pertuis, France

La Maison de Beaumont offers an Artist Residency in the Luberon region of Provence, France.

The Artist Residency of La Maison de Beaumont was created with the goal of offering a retreat for musicians, scholars, writers and painters, who seek a quiet place to work undisturbed on their art. The scenery and beauty of the region, coupled with the history and comfort of the house, provides an ideal setting to focus on creative work.

The program provides :
• Up to two months in residence at La Maison de Beaumont
• A fully equipped private apartment with kitchen & bath
• A common creative room for rehearsals, exhibits, painting atelier or other artistic endeavors
• Access to the common terrace 

An Immersive Experience in Provence & Luberon

La Maison de Beaumont’s residency aims to provide its residents with a holistic experience, allowing them to fully disconnect from their usual point of reference and immerse themselves into the Provençal lifestyle, the essence of which is beauty, simplicity, quality and tranquility. The village of Beaumont-de-Pertuis itself is a medieval town dating back to the 11th century. The town was built on high grounds, surrounded by vineyards, lavender fields and forested hills, making it an ideal setting for meditative hikes and exploration. Our Former Residents have reported feeling revived and inspired after the residency, which brought clarity and focus into their artistic work as well as their personal lives.
