Saturday 19th to Saturday 26th September 2020 - JUST 1 SPACE LEFT in a single room with shared bathroom 

Enjoy 7 nights of complete relaxation at The Barn in the Charente-Maritime department of France. This fully inclusive holiday allows you to spend a few days with like minded people working on the project of your choice, with no housework to worry about or meals to cook!

Sue will be on hand to help with any knitting queries, run impromptu workshops and can even set a project for the week if required. There is a pop up shop on site selling knitting needles, crochet hooks, knitting and crochet kits, patterns and goodie bags and a large library of knitting and crochet books to browse through. We will also go on sightseeing and shopping trips to some of the lovely old towns in the area. If you prefer a more structured week see our knitting and crochet workshop holidays here.

The Charente-Maritime has a micro climate meaning that it is generally warmer and sunnier than the UK. The swimming pool is open from May until early September (weather permitting). In cooler weather there are two large wood burning stoves to cosy up in front of and all the bedrooms have electric wall heaters.  

The cost of the holiday includes full board with wine and apero's, transfers from Bordeaux airport or Saintes station to The Barn and outings to local towns. All you have to do is get yourself to France. Special dietary requirements can be catered for.
