VCCA France / Le Moulin à Nef


The Virginia Center for the Creative Arts now offers residencies, workshops and a variety of cultural programs at Le Moulin à Nef, its studio center in the charming village of Auvillar in the south of France.


Auvillar: United States

Located in Gascony (the setting for the film Chocolat) Auvillar is recognized as one of "le plus beaux villages de France." It is situated between Toulouse and Bordeaux in a region rich with history and culture, both French and Occitan. A village of 900 souls, Auvillar was once an important French ceramic center. Designated as one of France's "100 Most Beautiful Villages," Auvillar is set on the broad green Garonne River, with clearly visible remnants of ancient hilltop fortifications, monuments that go back centuries, nearby medieval cathedrals and museums to explore. The weekly market is a highlight. The village also has a butcher shop, bakery, pharmacy, tabac, post office and public email access, plus six eateries, ranging from a pizzeria to a four-star restaurant. The region is noted for medieval villages, Faience pottery, troubadour singing, cassoulet, foie gras, strawberries, exquisite wines and tantalizing cheeses.
