Retreats: The Details



Explore your passion and join us at our Retreats base near Forcalquier Provence, South of France. Our base is tucked away in the hills overlooking a Provence valley and can comfortably provide places for a group of up to ten.

These retreats have been created to provide you with an unforgettable community experience, shared with people just like you. The most import factor is to have fun and enjoy the experience.

Very few people can afford to live in one of these houses, and we ask all guests to respect the time and effort that goes into setting up and maintaining these high-quality coliving accommodation.

The Brain Tank

e-Work-Exchange program: This program has been specially created so that you can experience this amazing place and not have to fork out the full price for our stays (includes food and drink, we cook together everything is supplied, saves super amounts of time and there is a "Can we have board" so you do not go without).

We are part of an ever-expanding group promoting Coliving as a way of life, where you can call our spaces as your "Home" and we are offering you 65% off the Coliving price for this with our e-work-exchange program.

This is a living experience and you can be part of the team "Charlie's Creative Angels" developing the ecosystem and also know exactly what the differences are because we certainly are not Airbnbs.

We have worked so well together that we are making a platform for "Charlie's Creative Angels" so that we can continue working.
