Singing Retreat Holiday 

Hauteville Sur Mer, Normandie France

20-27 May 2023

Singing at the Seaside. Breath in the fresh sea air, sing from the heart & enjoy delicious home cooked food on our small group singing retreat holiday on the stunning Normandy coast

A place for you to relax, nurture your wellbeing and connect with your voice. 

Absolutely all singing abilities are welcome. Our singing retreats are about sharing the joys and many benefits of finding your voice, singing together - and most importantly singing from the heart. 

Your days will be filled with activities to nourish the heart, body and soul. From joyous daily singing, meditation/relaxation sessions, exploring the beauty of the Normandie coast and countryside, sharing delicious home cooked meals and plenty of time to rest and relax. 

We have purposely chosen this beautiful seafront villa for our small group retreat to enable dedicated support and attention for everyone. There are only 4 guest places available, which allows us to be more flexible in the daily programme, and focus more fully on individual needs and requirements. 

We have been running singing retreat holidays in France for over 25 years, both in retreat centres and our own venues. You can read more about what others have said about us and our retreats on our guest testimonial/review page. You can also read about one of our previous singing and meditation retreats (before our move to Normandie) that was featured in a retreat special in The Guardian

During your singing retreat holiday we will sing songs in a variety of musical styles; including pop, rock, folk and world music, as well simple, soulful songs, chants, mantras and sound meditations from around the world to uplift, relax, bring joy and nurture our wellbeing. 

We provide a fun, friendly, supportive and non-judgmental space for singing and using your voice where absolutely ALL singing abilities are welcome. There is no need to read music, as all songs will be taught by ear. The only requirement is a curiosity to explore your voice, creativity and singing with others.

We will work holistically with the breath, tone, control and vocal range to develop and use our own authentic, natural and beautiful voice. Singing is for everyone, and we can all sing from the heart!

Home cooked food made with love

Good food brings people together. Our food is made with love and enjoyed at shared group meal times everyday during your singing retreat holidays. There will also be daily afternoon tea and home-made cake breaks. Delicious seasonal dishes with influences from all over the world - from slow cooked fragrant curries to local French classics. Ema has been cooking for groups and at our retreats for years and loves using local, seasonal and home grown ingredients wherever possible. She writes about food on her blog, and has also had her recipes featured in numerous publications and was a regular contributor (and winner) of The Guardian Readers' Recipe Swap.
