Crochet Projects

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.

Ready to Drive to Limoges Airport to Collect our Guests

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.

Homemade delights

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.

Other Information
