Mountain Writing Retreat

Spend time writing in a Mountain Writing Retreat

If you're an author or a bustling entrepreneur running your own home based business, you'll take one look at this image - as we did on our journey with the scape to the Continent team in Spain looking for a property to start our own retreat - and you'll just want to sink into this chair, put your feet up beside the pool and lounge away the day writing or reading in total privacy and seclusion.

Setting Up A Writing Retreat

Retreat to a sunny deckchair to spend time writing your breakout novel

As Ken and I went around Spain looking at properties with the Escape to the Continent team to film our journey to find a suitable location to set up our very own Writing Retreat, we spotted this lovely place. Each time we found a property that may have given our future writing guests a place to sit quietly in the sun or hideaway in the shade, it tickled our interest in setting up a retreat even more.
