"When music meets talent and inspiration, magic occurs... Add to that a human touch, sensibility and a dream environement... Then music flies!

And that's what happens in this studio where soul comes first.
Thanks Davy, always a pleasure to work with you at Le Pond."

​A house in the countryside, 4 rooms available at all times (5 rooms on request), a pond with spring water to cool off in summer, snowy paths to inspire you in the winter, an abundance of musical instruments and a fully equipped studio; this is the perfect place to come and create. See our Creative residency & Rental page

" An environment
Where creativity grows in gardens

A gardener
Who collects ideas and inspiration

We enjoyed ourselves musically... and philosophically.
Thank you Davy for this beautiful human experience!
