What to expect when you visit
The French Retreat is both our home and a retreat centre for anyone looking to find stillness, reconnect with themself or learn something new. We welcome you as we would a guest in our home, rather than a visitor to a hotel.
Your bed will be made up with cotton sheets, duvet, pillows and a throw. Soap and bath towels are provided but please bring your own pool towel. Unless otherwise arranged you do not have your bed made and towels replaced every day.
Although it can be very hot in the day with clear skies, the evenings can be chilly so bring another layer if you feel the cold or if you want to stay up late watching the stars, which are magnificent. It is a very rural and relaxed location, comfortable shoes are recommended and if you head out you will find the local restaurants are very informal.
The local market town of Chalais is within easy walk, there are also a few bicycles for your use.
Other facilites: Wifi, although being rural France the wifi is slower than cities, so please do not expect to able to stream films; ping pong table, washing machine.
