A pleasure to be hosted by David in the rather too sleepy town of Lodeve. Just the kind of accommodation we needed after a long day's cycling - with a good breakfast to get us going again in the morning.

I recently stayed again with the wonderful family who own and run Lattelier Du Solondre! Nothing was too much trouble the food was delicious and I could not have been happier on this short break in such a beautiful part of France.

We have just returned from a 5 day painting break at l'Atelier and we had a great time. Sally and David made us feel very welcome in their lovely home in a fantastic location in Lodeve, and went over and above to look after us. It is refreshing to meet such genuine people. I am still reeling from everything learnt...

It's my second visit this summer to the studio of David McEwen..... (I last went in 2012 - please see my previous review) This year I brought a painting that I was struggling with alongside 5 blank canvases and a large box of Alkyd oil paint, determined to raise my technique, confidence and approach once more... I was not disappointed!...

David and Sally are wonderful hosts with David being the art instructor and Sally cook extraordinaire! It was a lovely, relaxing week with my non painting husband being able to walk and take lots of photographs, and me testing David's patience. He's not the first person to tell me to go slow when I draw and paint! Food was amazing...more...

It became clear to me whilst staying at L'Atelier du Soulondre that many people return to stay here multiple times. I think the reason why they do, is not just because the usual 'checklist' of holiday requirements is met, but that there is an extra ingredient that makes this place a unique stay. It will be a different experience for...
