The Koumkinvi Roots Music Retreats are 6 days long, they include 5 nights full board and accommodation. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with price options for singles, doubles or shared rooms. For the 2020 retreat some single / double accommodation will be off site but very near to the Koumkinvi venue itself. The homemade food is healthy and locally sourced. Expect french pastries and great coffee, yogurt, fruit, breads and cereals at breakfast, wonderful lunches and wholesome evening meals sampling all you’d expect at a French country house, cheese, bread, meats, wine, fish. Vegetables and salad from the garden…




Arrive at Koumkinvi for an afternoon or evening check in.

Collection at Brest Airport (close to Koumkinvi) or local station is possible if required.

After a drinks reception we’ll have an evening group meal with good wine and we’ll settle in to the wonderful surroundings, the beautiful stone house with roaring fires and we’ll be welcomed by our hosts John and Daphne. Relaxed jam sessions may take place, we’ll also have a playlist of great blues music on the stereo!
