Accommodation at Baldessin Press

For artists or writers wishing to stay on site at Baldessin Studio, we offer a choice of comfortable, simple self contained accommodation. Staying and working full time over a number of days or weeks does allow for a level of immersion, focus and concentration that is often hard to achieve! Not to mention the level of relaxation, creativity and well-being that comes of being free to work and rest to your own timetable, in such tranquil surroundings. Available all year for Retreats, and during workshops.

Currently there are two self contained appartments available,
each with a different character:
