France Getaway 2022


Please join us for our twelfth year of the French General France Getaway!  In celebration, we will be hosting our France Getaway in the heart of rural France.  Our week long retreat will be held at a 19th century manor house which has been restored with a balance of rustic charm and modern elegance.

Come spend a week learning to live as a rural French woman as we visit local villages, shop the flea markets and spend time crafting with like-minded women. Surrounded by beautiful fields of sunflowers, local farmer's markets and traditional artisans, you will be inspired and connect deeply to the countryside of France.

Each week, the France Getaway features a special friend and artist who will join us and offers their unique perspective on life in the French countryside.  Our converted barn studio is set up for all sorts of creative workshops - and everything is geared toward curiosity and experimentation.

Our days are spent living in a large, country manor just outside of Corde-sur-Ciel.  The 19th century home is surrounded by 10 acres of garden and countryside - a perfect place to relax in one of the many elegant rooms, or sit by the pool and enjoy a glass of local wine. 

Each week will feature visits to the local farmer's markets, brocantes and neighboring villages. Our favorite Chef Charlotte keeps us well fed as well as teaches us her fabulous French cooking techniques. Our weeks are relaxed and creative, we spend as much time crafting as we do taking short field trips to nearby towns. You are welcome to join in all of the activities or take time out at the manor to find your inner French woman.

Air travel is in and out of the Toulouse Airport, where we pick up on the arrival day at 3pm and drop off on the departure day at 9am. 

A full guide book with more information will be sent out to you upon your registration.

Our retreats attract physically and mentally fit women who are open-minded, progressive, generous and kind - if this describes you, we would love to have you join us in France!
