Writing holiday (not course) ideas?
So, first post for me but am a WM subscriber and after an online writing course last year I am slowly working on a novel. I have, through change of circumstance, got 7 days leave in August this year in which I'd like to go away for a kind of writing retreat, somewhere European, lovely but peaceful, so that I can hunker down and get on with writing! No procrastination, no distractions, just writing.
My requirements are pretty basic - somewhere interesting with a desk (ideally in front of a window) with a view and within striking distance of an airport for easy enough transfer. Not so hot as to be distracting, though I accept it will be August in Europe!
Would anyone have any ideas? Flights I am fortunate enough to be able to sort fairly easily, it's a place and accommodation I need inspiration for. AirBnB sounds like what I need... but with so many millions of places to choose from I am a bit stumped. So far my ideas are very broad... Barra (Scotland) to Dubrovnik and anywhere inbetween.
I'd be very grateful for any ideas, suggestions or pointers.
