The Location: Chapelle de L’Artiste, 3300 Inspiration Lane, Paradise, CA 95969

As you enter this property through the expansive gates of Inspiration Lane, you’re drawn to the quaint chapel that sits at the top of the hill.  It provided the inspiration for the name of the property, “Chapelle de L’Artiste” or “Chapel of the Artist”.  Down a gentle slope to your left and shaded by beautiful oak trees, the classically-styled barn, which currently functions as the owners’ studio, is serenaded by a 3-tiered water fountain in the center of the drive and guarded by three curious llamas.  A gorgeous koi fish pond, the cave, and a beautiful hospitality pavilion completes the picture.

Tickets are available at the gallery ($75 ea) or on line at http://concoursdelachapelle/eventbrite.com.
