Calliope is a double room at our retreat.
That’s Canadian writer Mary Cavanagh, below, at her writing desk.
Calliope has her own private living room as well as an en-suite spa bathroom – a deep, long tub with a view of the valley and a separate walk-in shower, all newly renovated.
The bedroom also has a valley view. The room is a quiet haven with a queen-size bed.
The salon is well-furnished with two desks, a twin-bed settee, two large French windows overlooking the valley, and a wood burning stove in a marble fireplace for your use.
Calliope is also on the first floor of the retreat.
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.

Calliope, or “beautiful voiced” in Greek, is the muse of epic poetry.
