September 2018 – Isola Maggiore, Umbria

The dates for this year’s autumn retreat on the island are 15-22 September 2018.

That’s a whole week of indulgence on Isola Maggiore, with 7 nights bed, breakfast & evening meal at Da Sauro (the island’s only hotel), daily workshops to get you writing, one-to-ones, aperitifs overlooking the lake, and entry to the local lace museum, ‘Captain’s House’ and the church of St Michael the Archangel with its magnificent frescoes.

No cars, no shops, no clocks …  just all the time in the world to relax.

Price: £720, excluding travel.

Places are limited to just seven people (each with double ensuite room, single occupancy). To secure your place, email Glynis for a booking form, then return it with your deposit of £270.
