Les Tapies is a picturesque 17th Century hamlet, which has been carefully restored to retain its original character and its dynamic studio spaces make it an ideal base for a creative arts program.
The facilities at Les Tapies include a model-making and sculpture workshop, an art studio for drawing, painting, and printmaking, an architecture studio, a photography studio, an exhibition gallery, a community center, a spacious dining room and lounge, and residential accommodation for up to 35 students and staff. Outdoor terraces provide extensions to the living spaces and ideal settings for barbecues and informal dining. The hamlet also has a games room for pool, table soccer, ping pong, darts, and board games. The swimming pool is popular for water sports and for cooling off from the hot Ardéche sun.
