Meeting between refuge of art and beauty of nature

5828883-slideshow © Andy Goldsworthy

An original way to discover the most beautiful works of Andy Goldsworthy in Haute Provence

Description

The mountains around Digne-les-Bains offer us a wide variety of landscapes. This “hybrid” territory between the Alps and Provence was the first to be labeled GEOPARC by UNESCO. The explorer Alexandra David Néel chose to stay here during her retirement because this mountainous and wild territory reminded her of the most isolated regions of Tibet. Andy Goldsworthy decided to create one of his main collections around Digne-les-Bains because the heritage and landscapes inspired him enormously. His work, baptized “Refuge d'Art” can be discovered on several exceptional sites, integrated into chapels, sheepfolds and old dwellings.
We offer you a guided stay, in roaming, allowing you to discover this very special territory with accommodation in structures of human size offering a personalized service.
