Krishna is your hostess, housekeeper and chef de cuisine. For many years, owner/manager of an Optician's on the south coast of England, she has recently emerged as an outstanding cook, her growing reputation (fostered by several newspaper editorials in the Normandy papers) drawing local people (English and French) to her evening meals and Sunday lunches.

Brian is your host and head gardener! After a varied career as filmmaker, writer and educator, has more recently returned to his first love, painting, resulting in exhibitions in Caen, Granville and Vire in 2008. He has also devised inspirational residential courses at Arts in the Garden, for painters at all levels, details at: www.painting-in-normandy.com

Arts in the Garden, which opened in May 2008, is a joint creation: a house and gardens where the pleasures of good food and wine, painting and sculpture from all over the world, and - not least - congenial conversation are to be savoured amongst friends
