French Chateau Quilt Retreat with Mandy Shaw, June 2019

Dates: 2 - 9 June 2019 -7 nights

Prices: from £1695 per person

Join Mandy Shaw for a week of creativity surrounded by fabulous alpine landscapes. We’ll be staying at the wonderful Chateau des Comtes de Challes, a stunning 15th Century chateau that has been lovingly restored and retains many of its traditional features. There will be great opportunities to learn new quilting techniques during the 4 days of workshops, as well as to explore the local area on two included excursions to Lyon and Chambery.

Your 7 days in the Alps will also include delightful excursions to:

  • Chambery – visit the capital of The Alps on market day.
  • Lyon - including a visit to the Musée des Tissus, home to no less than an incredible 2000 years of textile history and a visit to Maison Des Canuts to view the full-size looms from every era of Lyon’s silk weaving timeline.
  • Plus: Fine dining and a wine tasting in the Chateau's cellar with the hotel's sommelier.
