Let yourself be inspiredin Porte de DrômArdèche

On the road to the arts

In the land of the “facteur Cheval”, a great dreamer and artist, what could be more natural than to be inspired! Artists with multiple talents: sculptors, ceramists, painters, jewelry designers … are installed near the Ideal Palace. They feel the good vibes and are inspired by this model of determination, very inspiring for all.


dream and art

Are all artists dreamers? Do you have to be a good dreamer to be an artist? Does dreaming lead to creation? Ask any of our artists! they will certainly answer yes. The dream holds a great place in the life of everyone and especially of the artists who manage to put into shape what they have in their heads, in their dreams, even the craziest. Here, dreams and art live together every day!

Workshops & Shops

open to all

Some creative places are rather confidential when others are open to the public. Visiting an artist’s studio is also to better understand the creator: we see his environment, his tools and his inspirations.
A few artists have made this choice to give tours:
– The temple of femininity at Grand-Serre
– The pottery of angels in Andance
And stores:
La P’tite boutique in Beausemblant
Joliment Tendance in Châteauneuf-de-Galaure
Le vintage du facteur and La Maison d’en face in Hauterives
