Atelier: the space
Atelier de Melusine has several live/work spaces, a print room and grounds for residents to work, stay and exhibit. Accommodation is simple and requires mobility for steps and stairs. The spaces are for single or multiple occupants.
Melusine is a professional working space; we are also a historic space and can be booked for single night stays for travelling artists, performers and pilgrims (we are near one of the four French pilgrimage routes which lead to the Camino de Santiago) on personal reccommendation.
Built into the side of the old ‘Chateau de la Tremouille’ which was abandoned in 1040 AD, the atelier has a crypt currently under excavation and restoration, as well as a hidden cave that leads to a series of underground tunnels which remain sealed at this point. The half-acre gardens are also hidden, high above the roofs of the other houses, and are a large section of the old castle mound. It is a fascinating space, winter and summer and has beautiful old roses, four terraces and a plunge pool.
Our exhibition programme is by invitation only.
