La Poterie Retreat & Workshop

The Week

The best of "retreat" & "workshop": rigorous group discussion of your manuscript, sessions on writing craft & publishing, ample daily solitude, one-on-one conferences, local excursions, and gourmet meals — all in an inspired setting.

We are tentatively planning retreats for Summer 2022 depending on Covid protocols.  Please check back for updates.  

To Apply

The Location

Despite its proximity to the better-known Loire Valley, le Pays Vallée du Loir—two hours southwest of Paris by train in France's Sarthe region—is a well-kept secret.
