Reflect, Connect, Create … A Spring Retreat

How would it be to have a few days of uninterrupted space and time
to reflect, connect and create?
Or just to relax, unwind and recharge?

Spring is the perfect time to explore all things new and emergent.
A Place To Be Retreat is a creative and relaxing environment
(surrounded by nature) to do it.
Now days are getting longer and evenings are warmer
we  offer a rejuvenating environment
for an extended stay.
