The Moulin à Nef studios are located in the medieval village of Auvillar's port area, right on bank of the Garonne River. A downstairs sculpture studio was created as a working ceramics facility. Featuring two kilns and multiple kick-wheels, it is approximately 25 x 35 feet with high ceilings, a settlement sink, and access to the cement courtyard with a slop sink in the back. 

Two upstairs furnished studios measure 15 x 18 feet and work well for writers or visual artists. The central upstairs studio is a 16 foot cube with state-of-the-art halogen lighting. The building is equipped with two bathrooms and connects to a charming outdoor courtyard.

VCCA Fellow Cheryl Fortier is on site as VCCA-France's resident artist, living in La Cloucado.

Auvillar may be accessed by the airport at Toulouse (about 90 km to the east) or the train station at Valence d'Agen (about 5 km away).
