Nestled in the French Pyrenees at 750m altitude, 10km from the spanish border and surrounded by snowcapped peaks, waterfalls and forests, is the picturesque thermal town of Aulus-Les-Bains. In the town, housed in a beautifully renovated 19th century hotel, is CAMP - the first of a new breed of arts residency. in 2018, CAMP will run a short series of five-day arts, music, writing and arts-activist sessions. these are no ordinary courses - they are intense, artistic catalysts run by internationally acclaimed practitioners; creative flashpoints designed to change the lives of everyone involved. the courses combine work in our well equipped facilities with projects carried out in the mountains - check out the courses for full details.

By bus: maybe the cheapest option if you're booking last minute, check http://www.ouibus.com
Once you get to Toulouse: from Toulouse bus station (next to the train station) get the 952 bus to Saint-Girons. Get off at the last stop, grab a coffee and wait for the next bus to Aulus. To check times and prices, a great site is https://www.rome2rio.com
By car: from Toulouse, head southwest on the A64 to Junction 20, exit onto the D117. Continue to Saint-Girons, then follow the D3 to Oust, then the D32 to Aulus-les-bains. Aulus is signposted all the way from Saint-Girons. If you're coming from Spain or east France, you should arrive via the N20 - at Tarascon, take the D8, then the D18. Again, signposts are at all junctions.
