This year's residency dates are July 11 - 25, 2017. It is open to the public.

Two artists will be selected stay at a villa on the grounds of the 14th Century Chateau de La Napoule in the historic seaside town of Mandelieu-la Napoule. The chateau is a French historical monument renowned for its restoration and architectural details. Six acres of grounds surround the property. Surrounding natural areas are accessible on foot. The public beach is close.

The residency also covers lodging, breakfast and travel back and forth from the Nice airport. The villa rooms each have a private bath. There is a kitchen for cooking, and markets and restaurants nearby. Artists need only speak the language of art, no French necessary.
