Free retreats for artists, writers and performers

  1. Hello,

    I am an American woman who is in the process of writing two books, one fiction and another which is non-fiction. Being on a fixed income, locating a peaceful locale in which to write is rather challenging. ย 

    Please tell me more about places currently available in accessible European places as I am currently planning a trip there.

    1. Hi Barbara and thank you for your comment : ) All of the information I have is currently on this page – I don’t work for any of these centres, so you would get more accurate information by contacting them directly. Best wishes with your search for a retreat – and did you consider housesitting as an option? x Lyndi

  2. Fantastic blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there
    that I’m totally confused .. Any recommendations?
    Appreciate it!

    1. Hi Dante… suggestions for aspiring writers? Write about what you love, and write often! Your readers will feel your passion. If you are starting out, get a free blog first. WordPress is excellent, you can customise it to look like a professional website. WordPress can also help you link a unique URL, so you buy through WordPress and then people typing in will find your site. Good luck!

  3. Hey Lyndi,

    We were just told about your page by one of our Australian writers.

    Thanks for mentioning our retreat (La Muse) on your page. We really appreciate it.

    Your readers might also find that Resartis is also a very good database for artists looking for a retreat.

    All the best,
