Staying at Le Verger

Le Verger is a comfortable stone built house set in the rolling Dordogne countryside of South-West France just outside the picturesque village of Savignac-Lédrier.

Accommodation is offered in individual or shared rooms (not en suite, sorry!) in the main house, the Piggery (a converted gite) overlooking the orchard, or in one of our Writer’s Cabins.





Breakfast is on a help-yourself basis and can be enjoyed from as early or late as you like it. A simple buffet lunch will be laid out in the kitchen from 12:30-1:30. Tea- and coffee-making facilities are available at all times.

Dinner is served with wine around 7:30pm and we encourage all retreaters to join the group for this as again, it is the time of day when you have a chance to talk to your tutor and fellow writers after all the writing you will have done during the day. If you have any specific dietary needs or other intolerances, simply let us know about them on the Booking Form and our hosts will make sure the meals are suitable for everyone.

Your stay also includes transfers from and to Limoges or Brive or airport (or Limoges-Bénédictins train station) and Wi-Fi internet access. Please, note, that individual pick-ups or drop-offs will cost you extra. 


At Le Verger, all your needs are catered for, so you can fully focus on your writing and come home with a finished play.
