About

The Hôtel Donadéï de Campredon is a majestic 18th century residence, partly protected as a Historic Monument since 1979.

 

Built along the current quai Frédéric Mistral, for Charles-Joseph Donadéï, from a family of landowners originally from Italy and present in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue since the 15th century, the building presents a facade on the rue du Docteur Tallet, one on the quai Frédéric Mistral and two others on the garden. The Hotel Donadéï de Campredon displays a beautiful architecture on three levels.

 

The plans were commissioned from Esprit-Joseph Brun, also called Brun Cadet, a very talented architect from L'Isle, to whom we owe many achievements, notably in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, Aix-en- Provence and Marseille, including the famous Château Borély.

The elegant fountain at the end of the garden is attributed to Jean-Ange Brun, older brother of Esprit-Joseph Brun, with whom he sometimes worked, in particular for the hospital in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue.

 

The mansion was sold in 1865 by the Marquis de Lespine, heir to the Campredons, to the nuns of Saint-Charles. The house then becomes a school for young girls. It was subsequently acquired by the City of L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue in 1977, then restored with the help of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Region.

 

Since 1984, the Hôtel Donadéï de Campredon has hosted numerous exhibitions of modern and contemporary art.The art center inaugurated in 2010 offers three levels of exposure on a surface of 500m² as well as a magnificent courtyard that can accommodate various events: Conferences, readings, concerts, dances, seminars.

The mission of the art center is to make the establishment a player in the life of the city and the region, a place of reference on the national territory but also a dynamic space for discovery and education in artistic practices, as well as a cultural lever aimed at diversity and the broadening of audiences. To do this, an annual program is implemented, eclectic and meeting quality, readability and distribution criteria, open to artists of yesterday and today, from here and elsewhere, multifaceted and arousing the interest and curiosity of all audiences.
