We started La Muse because we craved what it offers:
immersion in nature
Basically, our mission is to inspire creativity by giving an opportunity to artists and writers to work in peace in a supportive and peaceful mountain environment.
At La Muse, come to enjoy unstructured, uninterrupted focus on writing and drawing, creative play, walking or running, yoga and meditation, even just quiet day-dreaming, and eating and drinking slowly.
(Imagine, no disruptions, doing what you want when you feel like it, sipping a hot cup of tea while looking at a mountain!)
La Muse nurtures connection and finding yourself, instead of escape and treating oneself.
We emphasize opening up to creativity, not working and networking.
We believe that by actively engaging in creative pursuits you can inspire yourself and others.
We feel blessed that the work we carved out for ourselves here at La Muse gives us the opportunity to both live in a bucolic village in the south of France and get to know writers, artists and other creative individuals from all over the world.
Our mission is to share what we have created here with others.
We have discovered from residents, after over a decade and a half of hosting retreats that giving yourself consistent time and space to be creative is personally and professionally transformative.
We feel everyone should be able to come to a space like La Muse to create when they need to because we feel that creativity is a basic human need.
