Have you been thinking of writing a memoir?
On this retreat, you will learn how to get that book idea out of your head and onto the page. You learn to structure your life experiences into a riveting story, how to develop, character, setting and theme, all guided by awarding winning journalist and novelist Jan Brogan who has been teaching writing at every level. Additionally, you will be immersed into the slow life of living in Provence, with cooking classes from chef Kelly in the morning, yoga sessions to start the day, and evening wine tastings or excursions into Provence.
Give yourself a break and immerse yourself in the magic
of Provence this fall at La Belugue. Imagine waking up on fresh linen sheets every morning in an 18th century farmhouse in a little Provençal village. Hearing the birds chirping as the smell of a fresh farm to table breakfast permeates into your room. As you slowly wake, you find yourself eager to start your day because everything you are going to do on this day is what you want to do everyday. Indulge in some personal care with a yoga session, followed by a delicious breakfast with French pastries. Gathering and meeting new friends while enjoying time in the kitchen together creating dishes with a local Provencal cook in an amazing kitchen. Savoring the flavor of your creations with a bottle of wine in a beautiful garden, taking as much time as you want to soak it all in. Giving yourself the space to take a siesta after lunch, nurturing your body and soul, knowing that the days are long and that there is still time to see a sight in Provence that your host is planning for you. All you have to do is rest and relax and drink it all in.
La Belugue is an 18th century village farmhouse in the national park of Luberon in Provence. Most of the year it operates as a boutique Bed & Breakfast located in the small Provencal village of Beaumont de Pertuis.
We love to support our local producers and give our students authentic experiences focused on understanding where our food actually comes from. Excursions include trips to local winemakers, neighboring villages, farms, and marches.
Gathering in the kitchen and sharing meals with others from around the world in a beautiful location is a transformational experience. You will meet amazing people and have lots of fun!
Tap into your creative heart. Regardless of the themed creative retreat you sign up for, you will leave Provence with a new lens and view on life.
Eating seasonally is one of the wonderful things we love about living in Provence. Understanding where our food comes from and when its in season is lost knowledge in most regions of the world as we can get anyhting we want when we want it. The beauty of Provencal cusine is that it changes with the seasons so you learn to be creative based on what you can find. Back to the Basics as we say.
