Lower Hamlet and Middle Hamlet are One

During our renovations (click here for more information) we will not be able to receive guests at Lower Hamlet. All guests who register at Lower Hamlet will get to enjoy their retreat at Middle Hamlet (2 km from Lower Hamlet on the way to Upper Hamlet) with accommodations in nearby guesthouses. There will be scheduled activities led by the sisters, Days of Mindfulness and Lazy Days, just like a regular stay at Lower Hamlet.

Please note that we will only be able to accept guests who speak English during this time except during the Francophone Retreat. French-speaking women will be hosted at New Hamlet.
