2025 is turning out to be the year of France! Ooh La La! This is the last France retreat I will be a part of in 2025 and this one is in Provence!



I have been invited to teach a one day art workshop within the beautiful Provence Creative Retreat of The Cottage Table Experience. Registration will open to the First to Know list within a few weeks so 1.) get on the first to know list and 2.) come read all of the details so you will be ready when registration opens!



Join us in Provence | South of France – in the height of the lavender bloom! As we gather at long tables for provencal meals under the ancient trees, and picnic among the gardens while lavender perfumes the air. Summer in the South of France is magical!

We will meander, linger at bistro tables, and treasure hunt in the beautiful villages of Lourmarin, Gordes, Rousillon, L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, and Aix-en-Provence.

At our private Bastide on the edge of the village of Lourmarin you will enjoy art workshops with our featured artist, Jeanne Oliver, and an eco-dying workshop with our friend, Ingrid, a local French flower farmer.

There is nothing that compares to French brocantes – and we will spend mornings at two of the best. You will surely find special treasures to bring home!

We are excited to share some of our favorite, special places in this beautiful region as we gather, create, delight, and dream together during this special summer in France.

This is your invitation to join us for a time that will nourish your heart and soul – and will always be remembered.

Be sure to get on the first-to-know list so you will be able to register at the end of July before the retreat is opened to the public.

Our retreats are for women/men/couples/singles.
