TENTATIVE 2019 dates:
11-17 & 19-25 may
This week-long memoir writing retreat is housed in the magnificent Château Marcoux, an ancient hilltop fortress tastefully transformed into a modern manor house with a breathtaking 360-degree view of the French countryside.
Daily memoir writing workshops fill the mornings, while afternoons are kept free for writing and reflection. Optional yoga and meditation sessions provide a beautiful balance to a day of sitting and concentrating, and occasional outings to nearby villages and markets are offered as well. Evenings can be enjoyed together on the terrace with discussions over wine and candlelight, casual readings, and a meal in the picturesque neighbouring village of Beauville.
A variety of accommodation options, from luxury private suites to shared twin rooms, makes it possible for these extraordinary retreats to be enjoyed by people on a range of budgets.
Delicious and nourishing meals are prepared on site using fresh produce from local markets. Vegetarian options are available and limited special diet accommodations can be made.
This intimate workshop is limited to 7 participants.
Couples are welcome.
Sometimes we need a break from our lives
in order to write about them.
