The Writer’s Hotel is our newest offering, available during the late Autumn and Winter months. Now, you can visit Circle of Misse year-round!
Introducing The Writer’s Hotel
We provide a calm and comfortable en-suite double room with inspiring views, a writing desk and comfy bed. In the public area we have a relaxed salon, library and dining room on the ground floor and a cosy lounge on the top floor. We feed you delicious food and make sure you have the creature comforts you need to churn out words. Then we leave you to it and stay out of your way. You can come for a week, a month or more.
Why The Writer’s Hotel?
- A home away from home
The Circle of Misse house is homey and welcoming. You’ll get a private, en suite bedroom with a double bed and writing desk. There are sitting areas in the house and garden for working, and chatting when you’re in the mood.
- Set in the romantic French countryside
Surrounded by farms and farmland, we’re in the small village of Misse, with our closest neighbours being a church, abbey, cows and pheasants. We’re near the market town of Thouars but far enough away from the action that you can focus on your work.
- Time away from it all
Get away from all of life’s commitments. At The Writer’s Hotel, there are no formally organized activities, it’s just you and your writing. There are of course ample opportunities to socialise during mealtimes if you choose!
- Gourmet lunch boxes, nightly dinner parties
All meals and wine served at the house are included — Every day, you’ve got a personal picnic. Every night, it’s a dinner party.
Who it’s for
The Writer’s Hotel is perfect for writers who already have a big project on the go, and just need some quiet time and space to write. There aren’t our usual Misse offerings, like mentoring, tutoring or organised activities — so there are no commitments to pull you away from your work, and you can just get down to business. We’ll take great care of you regarding food and accommodations: you’ll have your own room with en suite bathroom, and three wonderful home-cooked meals per day, with coffee, tea, wine and other beverages available throughout the day.
The Misse Experience
At Misse, you’re our guest: there’s no need for grocery shopping, cooking or washing up. You’re invited to three meals a day, prepared by our chef in residence Aaron Tighe, and with all the coffee, tea, wine or beverages you’d like. You can stay in your room for privacy, or join us or the other writers during mealtimes for a bit of social fun.
