Travel to the land of light, to the farmlands, vineyards, and sunflower fields of Chalais, France, and join award-winning authors and teachers Nancy Stohlman and Kathy Fish for a breakthrough gathering of inspiration, creation, and transformation. Artists have always flocked to the south of France. Maybe it’s the changing light, the fields of sunflowers and lavender, or that gentle, time-out-of-time feeling when everything slows down. You’ll feel like family at the French Retreat, like visiting your European relatives at their farmhouse in the countryside. Whether you choose to write under the lime tree or by the pool in the delicious summer afternoons, you will feel the hurry melt away.
