Chapter 64, a retreat in France

“The idea is simple: for women to spend a few weeks embracing a lifestyle that allows them to peek into the region’s cultural heritage. They visit local farmers and flea markets, meet traditional artisans, and back at the château, eat delicious meals from local ingredients prepared by the chef. They visit a lavender plantation, a master weaver, and a mohair goat farm. Each day the women get busy in workshops and create original art atop crafting tables draped with antique linen, integrating vintage materials picked up locally that morning, for a song. Over the course of the retreat, they learn weaving, jewelry making, paper marbling, hand-lettering, and book binding.” Chapter 64, 100 Places in France Every Woman Should Go
