Leave behind life's distractions and retreat to the beautiful French countryside.


Standing on 1600 m of open land with a gated garden surrounded by rolling countryside, there are many spots in the Le Verger to write, read and find peace.

During your retreat or course you’ll be accommodated in your own simple but comfortable room with a desk and lamp.  Subject to availability, retreaters may have their own room or share accommodation in the main house with another writer or an accompanying partner. Retreaters may also stay in The Piggery or in one of the beautiful cabins with decks.

There is wifi in all the accommodation.

The Main House and The Piggery are also available for holiday rentals, with the two decked cabins as additional accommodation to either rental, if required.

For booking enquiries please use the form at the bottom of the page.

VW Tent
There is also the 'budget' option of one large (1.60 m x 2,90 m) stand-up tent for one person. Bedding and electric light are provided.


We had an incredible week made all the better by such a lovely base. the property is full of character and has an owner who ensures everything is just right for you.
We spent a week visiting the highlights of the Dordogne region with nothing more than a 75 minute drive away. Pretty much perfect.

Comfortable rooms and a perfect house for 2 families. New decking got the morning sun so breakfast on the deck and the front garden, patio and BBQ got the evening sun - perfection! A lovely (unless you don’t like hills) cycle in the country to get the bread and croissants every day. Lac du Rouffiac was idyllic but there are plenty of lovely lakes within a short drive and on route to some very pretty and interesting towns.

We really enjoyed our stay at Le Verger, set in the beautiful French country side, it was so peaceful and charming! The house had so much character, was very clean and well equipped and we enjoyed eating our meals looking out over the wonderful landscape. I can’t wait to come back, thank you for a wonderful stay!
