About
About

Inspire. A verb with the secondary meaning in French, and originally in English, of breathing in. 'Breathing in' is an essential part of the creative process, and that's what we offer here - the chance to refill your soul.

Inspire retreats take place around the magical, tranquil setting of a hamlet, typical of the Lot-et-Garonne, a beautiful region of France. The house itself is cool in the hot summer days, and is surrounded by a small private woodland for you to explore, when you're not cooling off in the salt-water pool.

The setting of this place, and the intention of these retreats, is particularly suitable for those needing a place to heal, and explore ways of finding self-nurturing.
