Pottery Retreat residents stay at the Potters Villa during their residency. The villa is a small building towards the far end of the property; it faces the orchard and is a two-minute walk from the studio. It can house 10 residents at any given time, on a twin sharing basis. The villa is a cozy space with all rooms opening onto a central lounge where residents get together for meals, music and socializing with other residents.
All rooms are air-conditioned and comfortably furnished. Each room has an attached bathroom and a large picture window that opens onto a private porch. Rooms are cleaned, the linen changed, and supplies replenished on request.
The Potters Villa has a small pantry equipped with essential crockery, cutlery, pots and pans, microwave, refrigerator, and a gas stove. Residents are welcome to cook snacks for themselves in between meals but must clean up the pantry after using it.
A small laundry room with a washing machine and detergent powder is also provided, along with an ironing board and shelves for storage. Each porch has a clothesline to hang up washing. Residents must clean up after themselves after using the laundry room.
Aura has lots of open spaces and a walking path that circles the entire property, perfect for that morning walk or a jog. Large lawns invite you for a stroll in the evenings. There is a large open-air swimming pool with attached changing rooms as well. Residents are welcome to use the pool from 6 am to 9 am and 6 pm to 8 pm.
We maintain a large organic vegetable patch for fresh vegetables and fruits and most of the meals served are organic. We welcome you to enjoy fruit directly from the orchard trees.
