Details of Retreat Experience for Knitters and Crocheters, La Souterraine, France Artisan & Trade Workshops Details for Retreat Experience for Knitters and Crocheters


Our guests are here to enjoy companionable knitting and/or crochet, with encouragement and guidance from host Heather and from any resident tutor(s).
Dates of 2017 Retreats:
Arrival Thursday 17th August 2017, Departure Monday 21st August 2017
Arrival Thursday 24th August 2017, Departure Monday 28th August 2017
Arrival Thursday 7th September 2017, Departure Monday 11th September 2017
An excursion will take place, encompassing two or more of the following: a visit to a wool producer, yarn fayre, yarn retailer, a brocante or vide-grenier, museum, arboretum, art exhibition, chateau, lake, boat voyage, kayak experience.
Additionally, we can drop off/collect guests who wish to enjoy one of the following: a walk by the River Creuse or River Sedelle or a visit to either the village of Fresselines or Crozant.

Typical Day

A pre-breakfast yoga session might be fitted in. After a leisurely breakfast with hosts, including home-made jam, croissants from Marie-Christine's local boulangerie and plentiful tea and coffee, it is time for a catch-up on individual progress with yarn projects, tips from visiting tutor and the option of a riverside walk, unless it is an excursion day.
A buffet lunch is next, and later, guests can sprawl in the garden with their knitting, a book or whatever. Possibly, river-swimming in the Creuse in the late afternoon will appeal, and/or a visit to one of several local artist's atelier or studio/gallery.
The evening meal is acompanied by wine. Music sessions under the stars are greatly encouraged, and we have instruments. But if peaceful pursuit of yarn projects is preferred, then that is fine with us.

Age range, type of group

Guests are yarn-enthusiasts, therefore generally-speaking adults who may be arriving singly or with a friend. The idea is that the 5-6 guests will bond over their yarn projects and enjoy a companionable retreat.

Sleeping and meals

We have five guest rooms and two guest bathrooms. Each guest has their own room, unless opting (for a discounted price) to share with one other, Non-participating partners are welcome, too. Bathrooms are shared between either two or three rooms.
Food is largely home-cooked, with veggie options. Guests can opt to be on the cooking rota, if they wish. Depending on group wishes, a river-side camp-fire meal can be organised on one of the evenings.

Policies & Restrictions

Participants are encouraged to relax and enjoy the experience; materials are not supplied, although equipment (knitting needles and crochet hooks) can be borrowed and Heather's yarn stash is available within reason to be dipped into.
Guests should be respectful of one another's right to peace and relaxation.
Lively chatting and laughter is nevertheless encouraged. Fortunately, there is space for everyone to have some me time, if desired.
Smoking can strictly only be done out of doors in the garden, away from the terrace area.


Retreats are four nights in length, with full board and lodging + wine, free transfers from and back to Limoges Airport or Limoges Station or La Souterraine Station. Rates range from 290 to 370 Euros per person, per stay.

Other Information

Please note; travel to Limoges/La Souterraine not included.
Non-participating partners are welcome and will pay slightly less.
They might enjoy fishing, river-bathing, walking, and painting classes at
an art teacher's studio (all close by).
