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

In Many Different Genres

We also offer some tutored courses during the summer months and discounts for special dates in the writer’s calendar. Please see Courses or Offers in the Menu to find out more. To see our calendar of Course Dates, click here: https://lestylonoirretreat.com/course-dates-and-closures/
