Barbaste is situated mid way between Bordeaux and Toulouse in the Lot-et-Garonne, France.
This area is the most western part of Southern France that Russell Flint visited on his painting trips.
The River Gelise, which runs under the mediaeval bridge, later to join the
Baise at Nerac, once powered a mill in the castle, which was one of the
fortified homes of the French King, Henry IV.

In his later years, due to his artistic and financial success, Russell Flint was able to travel extensively across Europe, particularly in France
where he was a prolific painter, also enjoying some time painting in Switzerland, Spain, Italy, and Scotland.
If you wish to visit the beautiful countryside and villages in the south west of France where Flint spent much of his time painting,
a beautiful holiday house in Dordogne is to let throughout the year.
