Le Vieux Couvent- Where Artists Come to Play (and enjoy good food!)
|Le Vieux Couvent welcomes all artists|
Walk in the gates and expect to be transported… immediately you have a sense of walking into a “Secret Garden”. Every corner is seemingly composed as if to be painted or photographed. Corinne Campbell and her partner Bill Boychuk, have transformed a compound of historic houses within the small French village of Frayssinet, and formed an artists’ retreat.

The staff even prepared a classic picnic with linens and wine for our market day. Our picnic was on the shore of the river in Cahors. Such fun!

At 6PM we always enjoyed aperitifs to accompany our critique of paintings from the day. Somehow we were always ready!

Lunch and dinners were always inclusive of local wines. And I have to mention the French cheese course and dessert. Yummmmm!
The cheese course is a regular part of ending our meals…just before dessert!
