Studio Information 

Note: They don't have any special studio space!

The organizers know that every artist has different needs in space, depending on the type of artistic medium he or she uses. They will try to organize the working space according to artist's needs together, upon an artist's arrival. They have a spacious living room where you can have your working space organized, and they will help you with that. If you need a table, you'll have your own table. 
The living room is a common space which is shared by all the artists in the house. (Around 4-6 artists at the same time). Besides, there is some space outside of the house, (some of it under a shelter) which you can also use as a working space if the weather allows: on the terrace, by the swimming pool, in the garden.
If you have some demands for your working space, please, mention it in your application.
