Sometimes weavers just need to retreat and re-charge our batteries! Our intention is to provide you with all the necessities of life whilst you immerse yourself in absorbing new influences and inspiration from the well-stocked weaving and design source library and have your own dedicated loom to develop ideas.

During your time here, you have the option to visit some local villages/countryside and experience the famous Gascon gastronomy and ambiance.
