Chateau d'Orquevaux offers a respite from "real" world  energy.  This magnificent estate in the French countryside of Champagne-Ardenne offers artists a place with limited distraction and an abundance of natural  inspiration.   

The residency is creatively self-motivated with most of the meals provided, so that artists can fully immerse themselves in the environment and the French country lifestyle. There will be about 15 artists-in-residence at a time.


Artists are provided a private studio and a private bedroom with a shared bath. Linens and towels are provided as well as light housekeeping.  

The Chateau will be lightly provisioned.

Upon arrival a champagne dinner reception will offer an introduction to other artists in residence and an orientation of The Chateau, Parc and Studio spaces. 

Other then having  some vegetarian choices we are unable to cater to any special food needs.
