Euterpe is a lovely double room at our retreat.
It has a decorative marble fireplace, wood floors and an en-suite shower and wash hand basin.
The room has two large French windows, above, facing the mountains.
The walls are decorated with art donated by many of the artists who’ve been to La Muse over the years.
The room shares a toilet with Melpomene and Thalia.
(There are two other public toilets in the house.)
Retreat Room Rates
*Summer retreats are priced weekly.
There is an additional 25% charge for couples.
We keep our rates as accessible as possible to be able to accept artists and writers at all stages in their careers.
We accept residents on a variety of “formulas.”
It’s possible to stay for several months, either on
- a paid retreat basis (click on the rooms above for rates).
- a partial barter (minimum four-week stay, 500 Euros per month).
- residencies and fellowships.
In regards to paid retreats we also offer reductions in the off-season and for extended stays. Extended-stay discounts even apply to July and August when booked 6 months in advance. These are amazing rates for summer accommodations in the south of France.
Please check individual rooms for specifics.
Our three-week retreats from September through June represent a roughly 30% reduction on what 3 weeks cost at the weekly rate.
That’s 3 weeks for the price of 2.
Start dates are specified on our calendar.
One-week stays are also possible in the shoulder and low seasons. We do not prorate for shorter stays.

Euterpe means “rejoicing well” or “delight” from the ancient Greek “well” and “to please.”
As with all our rooms she was named after one of the Muses, the daughters of Mnemosyne and Zeus.
Called the “Giver of delight”, when more recent poets gave roles to each of the Muses, she was assigned as the muse of music.
In Classical times she was also the muse of lyric poetry depicted holding a flute. A few say she invented the aulos or double-flute, although certain writers say Marsyas invented it.
Below is video of an art show at La Muse by Greek artist Anna Karakalou in November 2016.
Anna called the show, “Euterpe,” after the street she used to live on in Athens and this room, the one she stayed in while on retreat.
