About us

Sue and John (Culli) Culligan have lived in France since 2004. 

Sue is a knitting designer and Culli is an architect and keen wood-turner. Sue's knitting and crochet patterns are available to purchase here.

They have been running Knitting holidays in France from their home in the Charente-Maritime since 2006 and have recently moved to a new and larger house, The Barn at La Nougerѐe.

The stunning barn conversion is the perfect space for the knitting and crochet retreats and workshops, providing plenty of space and the luxury of a swimming-pool. There is a small cottage adjoining the main house which Sue and Culli are currently converting into a home for them to live in.

The Barn at La Nougerѐe is also available to rent as a self-catering holiday home during July and August, see details here.
