The price of your week includes:

  • your room, with a desk; bedlinen and towels provided,
  • all of your food and drink for the week, organic and locally-sourced wherever possible,
  • the preparation/serving of your lunch and evening meal,
  • transfers from Bergerac, either airport or train station, at the start and end of the retreat, making it really easy to get here,
  • advice, and close discussion of your writing with Marcus (should you want it!), including a ‘within reason'(!) reading of your book.
  • use of the library, a spare laptop (if you don’t want to bring your own), a ‘Freewrite’ keyboard if you want to go writing off-grid for the day, a laser printer to properly read through your progress, wifi, a piano, guitars, home cinema…,
  • use of the beautiful salt-water swimming pool,
  • private woodland to roam in, &
  • perhaps the most precious thing of all; these retreats are deliberately very small, so you can have that precious space in which you want to work.

In addition to the above:

Writing PLUS Yoga weeks – a tailored yoga practice in the garden or on the terrace, every morning, five in all.

Writing PLUS Healing weeks (TBC) – you will have two individual one-hour sessions, spaced across the week, with an amazing local therapist/healer.
