Montsalvat was originally established as a true artists’ colony in over 12 acres situated in Eltham, an outer suburb of Melbourne, Australia. It was founded by architect and artist Justus  Jörgensen (1893-1975) in 1934. It is home to a small hamlet of various buildings, houses and halls set amongst extensive established gardens. The colony of Montsalvat reflects very much the life of Justus Jörgensen and his friends and family.

  2. Looks like a very interesting village with lots of character.

  3. We don't have an artist colony, but Powell River is well know for lots of artists, authors and musicians. That makes it a wonderful place to live. - Margy

  4. That's quite an interesting place!
