Gary and Andrea Yelen are Australians living & working in France. Gary is an artist with a gallery in the village. Andrea is a writer.
Gary was a great host. His apartment is wonderful & I was made to feel very welcome. I had a good chat with Gary & some of the locals & had a wonderful meal at a restaurant round the corner. Everything about this booking was made easy & simple by Gary and I would not hesitate to recommend him as a host.
I just can confirm all the comments given from further visitors and must add this particular remark: Gary is a fantastic person to meet in your life and all his environment, his art of working and living reflects a great personality. To stay a while in his "mood", between this old stones which house and town is built on, you appreciate the simplicity of life and time going by. I can just recommend!!!
(sorry for my bad english)
Only one night ..but simply great !
See you soon Gary !
This place is special, set in a little town with less than 200 people. I can never forget the experience of my stay here. It was like being part of the art, quaint and extremely well thought through. Loved every piece, especially the door handles and the germinating sculptures. The art inside the house links to the outdoor garden pieces magnificently. Also managed to get my Oz bird knowledge up to the mark by using one of their books off the shelf. Plenty of firewood was supplied for our use, which was absolute class as we got there on a chilly night. Would love to go back! Although I didnt have the fortune to meet Andrea, she was extremely helpful over the phone and gave us detailed instructions. I truly wish we werent in so much rush and could have met you in Bruthen, Andrea. Thanks for opening up your beautiful place for us!
My partner and I had an absolute wonderful stay at FRUKT. The quirky art of the home and vegetable garden, and creek only a 50m walk away was what we loved most. With lake tyre beach and central Lakes Entrance only a few kilometers away, FRUKT makes a wonderful getaway for anyone. The bedding, bathroom and kitchen equipment were all of a good standard as well. We definitely hope to return someday soon.
A wonderful and unexpected find! A quirky and inspiring place for art lovers. Highly recommended. Gary is a great host. Will definitely stay there again.
The Art House lived up to expectations... artistic, quirky and a great place to rest ones weary bones. Gary was most helpful when we moved in and then like all good hosts, left us alone to enjoy all that is Nowa Nowa. A great stopover when on a road trip between Melbourne and Sydney. High recommended.
We really loved the house which was very clean and spacious and had a very creative and artistic atmosphere. The house is located directly at the highway but is still very quiet and a perfect place to relax. Gary is a great host and a very interesting person to talk to who knows a lot about area. We would have liked to stay longer to enjoy all of it!
Gary was a gracious and hospitable host! His place is charming, clean, spacious and filled with beautiful art of his own creation! The room is very private and is its own floor, so private bathroom and dining area with a small refrigerator. The window from the room looks out onto the village and is beautiful to look out and admire the light and life of Saint-Antonin-Nobel-Val. I recommend him and his home 100%!
Het huis ligt prachtig , midden in het dorp aan het plein waar ook de mairie en de kerk is.
Gary ontving ons heel hartelijk en de accommodatie is prima.
Een aanrader om hier eens naar toe te gaan.
Gary and Andrea are a very nice coup^le, very friendly! It was a pleasure to have them here :-)
come back when you want!
