Before my son was born I used to offer writing retreats for individuals or small groups but the house that I used is now rented out as retreats no longer became possible. Now he is seven and almost grown up, I have renovated a workshop into a studio with a small double bed and sofa bed, toilet, shower and a small kitchen (and Wifi). It is available to anyone who would like to come and spend some time up in the mountains, either do some writing or just to chill out. There would be no cost – except for a contribution towards utilities (which could be offset against a couple of hours help a day) – but a car is recommended if staying for more than three days (the house is too remote to be without) and a certain tolerance towards toy tractors necessary!
If you would like guidance or tuition with writing that would also be possible.
Anyone with children also welcome.
I am also looking for help with the ponies. If there are any horse lovers out there who would like to spend some time in the Monchique mountains in return for a couple of hours’ help, do please get in touch.
