Travel and Leisure article

La Muse is in the March issue of Travel and Leisure magazine.

Written by Claire Berlinski, the article names us as one of the ten

"Top Vacations for the Newly Unemployed."

Below is some of the copy from the article about La Muse:

"Finish Your Novel in a Medieval French Village

Have a half-written novel sitting in your dresser drawer? Dust it off at a writers’ retreat in the Languedoc.

Where: Find inspiration at La Muse writers’ retreat in Labastide-Esparbairenque, in the heart of Cathar country in the Languedoc. Its location in a quiet, secluded medieval village means there are no distractions here beyond the rustic food, the local farmers’ markets, the nearby wineries, and the company of other writers. Bonus: writing a scathing roman à clef about your former employers will make you feel much better.

Price: Rates for three-week retreats range from $975 to $1,365, depending on the room. In winter, you can barter for your room by working several days a week—your tasks might include building stone walls or gardening."

Reuters will also be running an article a long the same lines soon.
