Culture & Nature


Culture et Nature en Ubaye is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to: The promotion of artisanal and artistic creation in the Ubaye valley, and more particularly around the Villa Puebla. And we are also dedicated to reflecting on  the place of the living and the wild in our society, by:

  • The organization of exhibitions
  • The creation, design, production, and organization of concerts, shows, multidisciplinary performances, and, in general, events for cultural or educational purposes
  • The exercise of economic activities in the service of the objectives of the association
  • The artist residency program: The artist residency co-exists on the Villa Puebla estate alongside guest accommodation, breakfast and the garden. The resident artists live in the 19th century villa and are a central part of the community life. They offer workshops and events. All artists are asked to leave a trace and donate an artwork at the end of the residency.

In 2023 we will enjoy a very diverse and busy program and these are some of the many activities we will run:

  • April 12: Workshop with The Croqueurs de pommes/ Fruit trees pruning and grafting
  • May to October: Our first artists in residence
