Many other programes have focused on large cities; this might make getting there a little easier but we think it’s a shame to miss some of the worlds most unspoiled beaches and pretty countryside.
We’ve kept the program costs to an absolute minimum. This doesn’t mean we skimp on workspaces or wifi, or that you won’t have a good standard of room – it just means we choose our locations carefully and don’t have investors to please. We also head for low-cost of living areas, so your living expenses won’t be high either – a particular bonus if you enjoy eating out and want to enjoy activities too.
Our program is three months. Some other programmes encourage shorter or much longer stays: we think three months is a good length of time to enjoy a break from the routine of home life and properly get to know people and places.
We want to encourage interaction with local people and that is why one meal per week is going to be cooked in the villa by a local chef.
