tailored Artist Retreats

We create experiences that will stay in your mind forever.

Discuss your requirements with us via video-conference (Skype, FaceTime, Zoom). It provides a great opportunity to get to know each other & discuss the best way to collaborate.

Let us custom build your dream artist retreat based on the types of location you want to visit, the experiences you want to have and the type of people joining you on the retreat.

Focus on Teaching

You just have to think about the artistic side of the retreat!

“I just returned from my first workshop at Perigord Retreats. I cannot express how absolutely wonderful we were treated. From the accommodations, to the touring to the workshop .. and last but not least, spectacular gourmet delicacies prepared and served by the most gracious hostesses, Angela and Chloe.

Wonderful experience, not to be missed!”
Debra Fadil

“You’ll never experience anything to match the care you receive from this family. They are committed to your comfort. Angela makes up a delicious picnic for the group to enjoy while out. A studio, custom built as part of the Retreat, is a special bonus for completing work in the evenings. Our experience with them left us feeling we had been welcomed warmly into their family and made special new friends.”
