Welcome To Maison D'Hibou at Dauve, in the beautiful Charente
"One tranquil place with two holiday options"
Maison D’Hibou is set in 2 acres of meadow gardens and an orchard among the vineyards of the Petite Champagne region of the Charente. We proudly host our "Sew Many Pretty Things" retreat here at the gite which is a large, beautifully appointed, very well equipped holiday home comfortably holding up to 8 people.
SEW MANY PRETTY THINGS
Join our sewing retreat held at Maison D'Hibou. "Sew Many Pretty Things" is a non structured week of sewing, learning and enjoyment with like minded sewing enthusiasts. Food, drinks, accommodation and sewing equipment is all provided so all you need to do is turn up. We sew everyday but also make time, if desired, to explore the Charente and its beautiful surrounding villages and towns.
Kate can provide you with a specific sewing Kit or tackle an area of sewing that you are finding challenging, she will always go that extra mile so you get the most from your retreat.
This is your holiday first, and Kate wants to make it as enjoyable as she possibly can so she is always on hand to help. Take a closer look at the finer details of the retreat and what to expect.
