Le Chant de la Cascade

Retreat in the French Alps


Nestled high in the French Alps, the retreats at Le Chant de la Cascade offer you space, time and freedom for your writing, aided if you wish by an integrated yoga practice. These are very small group retreats so we can offer everyone exactly what they want, and with only two or three retreats per year, we can make each one special. 

All in all, the week is one of the most exclusive, bespoke retreats you will ever find…

• Very small group sizes, enabling personally-tailored care.

• Home-cooked organic meals.

• Your entire work-in-progress read and discussed with you (subject to length!).

• (Optional) four hours of yoga during the week.

• Personalised ‘yoga prescription’ to aid with your writing, for you to take away.

"I absolutely loved it."

"I recommend it to anyone."

"Marcus and Maureen have clearly thought about everything that goes into a restful and stimulating retreat: small group size, nourishing food, peaceful setting, comfy beds, lots of great writerly chat round the dinner table and even a wood-fired hot tub under a starry sky. And of course, time and space to write and think. Add to that illuminating discussions with Marcus and restorative sessions with Maureen, and it’s really quite special. I have returned home much clearer about my writing plan. A unique retreat."

Writer from Scotland
