Welcome to Chateau Dumas…

Chateau Dumas is a privately-owned 18th century estate in southwest France one hour north of the vibrant city of Toulouse, known as La Ville Rose, the pink city. 

Chateau Dumas is the perfect place to learn, relax and be inspired.  In the summer months you can join one of the week-long residential creative workshops to learn a variety of crafts from dressmaking and millinery to basket-weaving and printing.

Our workshops are taught by leading artists and craftspeople and take place in our two light, air-conditioned studios.  Guests stay on the Chateau estate in one of our stylish bedrooms or at our delightful local B&B which is within walking distance of the Chateau.

Delicious homemade meals are prepared by our chefs using fresh, local ingredients.  You’ll enjoy a variety of culinary experiences during your stay including picnics, wine and food pairings and themed dinners.

A standard workshop week includes a trip to a food and craft market in an atmospheric medieval town as well as dinner at a restaurant where the chef has an outstanding reputation for the quality and inventiveness of his food. We also offer transfers from Toulouse airport, Montauban (Villebourbon) and Caussade (T&G) train stations.
