Clio is one of the three first-floor rooms at our retreat.
A double bedroom, it has an en-suite bathroom (tub, shower and toilet) as well as a decorative fireplace.
It also has two tall French windows, above, which overlook the valley and as with all rooms at the retreat it has a writing desk.
A lot of writers who don’t want access to email etc. while writing book Clio because it is the only room at La Muse that has no WiFi.
The walls are too thick for WiFi to get through.

Clio is the muse of history, often called the Proclaimer because her name comes from the Greek word “make famous” or “recount.”
When represented Clio usually has a parchment scroll of a load of tablets nearby or in her hands. You can find her name in such words as cliometrics and cliodynamics.
