We believe in having a good time, and that life is at it's best when we are able to pursue what we love most.

That's why we offer these creative holidays: to bring some fun, adventure, and enrichment to people’s lives. To help them escape the reality of everyday to a place where their creativity takes centre-stage.

Over the years we’ve had to balance our culinary pursuits and creative careers with corporate jobs and family commitments. We know what it’s like. Misse has always been an inspiring part of that balance for us. That’s why we want to share it with you.

As you can see from the list below, we have assembled an amazing group. They share our vision, are passionate about their craft, and want to share that with you.

We’ve worked hard to provide something for all interests and every skill level, with that perfect mix of inspiration and practical know-how. Above all, these holidays are yours. Our team will go the extra mile, to take care of everything that you might need, so you can cook, write, paint or just be.
