Le Stylo Noir is a writer’s retreat in the beautiful, inspiring and peaceful countryside of Brittany, France. We aim to provide writers with a home away from home, where their only focus is on themselves and their writing. All meals are included in the price of the bedrooms and are lovingly prepared by a trained chef.

A Library of Books for Guests to Read

We also offer a 12 Night Course, half tutored and half free-writing, with two trips in the local area included. If you want to go on two trips on a non-course week then book onto our 5 Night Stay (with trips).
