The studio is situated just a short distance from the main house, in a renovated barn. Ideal for tutored sessions, and for when the weather is a little dull, the studio is a great place for meeting up and discussing more plans for the day. With beautiful gardens around the property, and some old crumbling architecture too, there is a wealth of subject matter to sketch and paint. The grounds extend to 24 acres, including the huge lake, and the environment is an ideal, and stunning location, for anyone seeking a relaxing break.

Out and about, our visits to local medieval and historical villages will help to inspire. Unfold your chair, set up your palette and relax, painting plein air, or just take in the French atmosphere.

COMBINE YOUR PASSIONS The property is available as a venue for all groups. Combine your week with photography, writing, golf, pilates, yoga, gardening, chateaus. Whatever your interests we would love to have you here at Bandouille. Please enquire. Group rates available


The Poitou-Charentes region is an area which, unusually for France, is yet to be truly discovered. It has remained relatively unspoilt and tranquil, full of historic venues which have not yet been overrun by tourism. Bandouille is located in the Deux-Sevres department, within the Poitou-Charentes region. Situated on the western side of the country, we are well served by autoroutes running from the northern coast, and are positioned almost centrally between the airports at La Rochelle, Poitiers, Nantes and Tours.

Plane: The above airports are served by a number of airlines, including Ryanair, Easyjet, Cityjet, Flybe and BA. Ferry:

The two most popular, and reasonably priced routes across to France, are from Newhaven to Dieppe, and Dover to Calais.

Tunnel: The journey through the Channel Tunnel, just off the M20, takes just 35 minutes from Dover to Calais. Drive times to Bandouille vary depending on transport, but using the excellent autoroute network, you should be able to reach us in around 6 hours from Calais / Boulogne, or about 4 / 5 hours from Caen or Dieppe.
