What is included in the cost of my music retreat?
All group tuition, all meals and drinks, en-suite accommodation. Once you arrive you don't need to pay for anything else, this is an 'all inclusive' retreat.
How is the schedule structured during my music retreat?
Whatever the course a typical day starts with a healthy continental breakfast on the covered terrace followed by the morning session of group tuition. After lunch the afternoon is free for relaxing by the pool, visiting local areas of interest or practicing your new skills! Tuition resumes for another two hours in the late afternoon before everyone joins together for aperitifs by the pool as the sun dips below the hills. It’s then time for a tasty, wholesome, home cooked 4 course dinner served either in the barn or al fresco on the terrace; that depends on the weather and time of year. As the evening unfolds with drinks around the fire pit everyone can reflect on a very rewarding day!
Can members of a music groups attend a course together?
Yes, the venue and all services can be adapted to provide for existing groups, ensembles, music or art societies, with or without tuition provided by Music Retreats. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
What is the best way to travel to the venue?
Most visitors arrive by car; some hire a car at the airport or railway station while others drive from their own country and extend their holiday by stopping off on the journey. Having a car gives flexibility if you want to take in local visits during your stay. If hiring a car we recommend you reserve well in advance.
