  • We had a wonderful extended stay (3 months) in Steph's studio in Argèles-sur-mer. The surrounding coastline is beautiful, the village is quaint and there are so many amazing places to go and explore in this part of France. While we sadly did not get to meet Steph in person, even from afar she was a wonderful hostess. The studio was stocked with all sorts of information on the surrounding area, as well as information about the studio itself. Steph also had a great property manager to help us get our keys and get settled in, and she was always very responsive by email. Renting from her really put our minds at ease.

    One of the great advantages of the studio was having a washing machine so that we didn't have to make constant trips to the laundromat, and a full stove that allowed us to cook for ourselves with all the wonderful things we found at the town market. The bed was extremely comfortable and the balcony was lovely to sit on in the spring sunshine. We very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return to Argèles-sur-mer again.

Born in Dublin I moved to Co.Clare in 1979 to create a small holding and emerse myself in my passion for textiles. Working from my home studio as a designer / maker with my own lable Saolré (lifecycle). I also love hill walking and especially like the atlantic coastline, stopping to catch images on my camera, which later translate into a design through the use of luxuriously soft natural yarns. I've managed to leave this beautiful green isle many times to visit far distant places and 'Druid Cottage' also enables me to meet interesting people from all over..I also like my home comforts especiallyI like being curled up by a wood fire on a winters night enjoying good book or company of friends. Druid cottage is a great spring board from where you can sample the wonderful scenary of Co. Clare and beyond or simply relax and enjoy what the nearby area has to offer while catching up on the reading, writing or sleep that you need to do. If you are (website hidden) to this page from another place you need to scroll down till you see Druid cottage on the left of the screen, then click on it and all will be revealed. Bye for now
