Searching for a creative course at a beautiful location or a lovely accommodation to spend a peaceful vacation? Art Coutansouze is the solution for both.


Situated in the hills of the French “Auvergne”, next to the biggest beech forest in Europe, Coutansouze is an oasis of tranquility and serenity and a paradise for every nature lover.


“Gîte du peintre” was an old stable and has been thoroughly renovated and upgraded. The result is a modern but snug vacation home.
