Art spaces

in Burgundy


About us

La Tempera was founded in 2016 by painter, researcher and art restorer Isabelle de Voldère as a place of creative development and exchanges in a rural setting.

The property consists of several houses within a hamlet surrounded by meadows and woods, close to the Vézelay Abbey and the Morvan natural park, only 2 hours away from Paris by train.

Artists, writers and creative professionals stay at La Tempéra to focus on their projects, connect with other creators, and enjoy the beautiful nature and culture that surround us.

We also host exhibitions, painting classes, musical events and  wellness.

The place is called La Tempéra in reference to a traditional painting technique. We use it to restore icons.


Stay at La Tempéra


We host artists, writers and creative professionals all year long, for durations ranging from one to six months.

Every resident organizes their own schedule and activities, having also opportunities to get together like meals, movie nights, yoga sessions, hikes and trips to explore local sights.
