Set in the rolling countryside of the Duras region in South West France, our retreat venue is a blissful getaway where you can relax, unwind and destress.The location is about as remote as you can get, with the nearest town being about 6 miles away. We are surrounded by sunflower fields and vineyards, making for stunning views and peaceful tranquillity.
The accommodation is luxurious, with each gite having its own character and individual design. The food is fresh, healthy, hearty and wholesome and all home cooked. The yoga sessions involve a perfect mix of dynamic flowing movements, gentle relaxing postures and mindful meditation.
More active guests can get out and about during the day, either using the bikes we have available or just heading out for a local hike. We also provide short trips to local towns and chateaus and include a fantastic wine tasting experience on the last evening.

Summary of what to expect…..
Flights from Liverpool arrive in Bergerac mid afternoon on the Tuesday and you will be collected by car for the short transfer. On arrival at the retreat one of the first things you will notice is how calm and peaceful the area is. The nearest town is five miles away, so the only sounds are from local wildlife and farm animals.
After receiving a welcome drink you will be given a tour of the grounds before gathering for your first evening workout (either yoga in the traditional French barn or fitness session overlooking rolling fields and vineyards). This will be followed by dinner served in the garden of the cottage, with excellent local wines available at very reasonable prices.
The remaining days will begin with an uplifting morning yoga session or fitness workout followed by a hearty and nutritious continental style breakfast. Guests will then be free to spend the day as they wish, with packed lunches provided. Pedal bikes and maps will be available for guests to explore the beautiful local countryside, or they can simply relax around the grounds and by the natural pool.
Optional short day trips will be provided to give guests an opportunity to explore and appreciate the local area. On site massages will also be available and these are top quality at very reasonable prices.
Guests will come together in the early evenings for relaxing yoga and meditation, or more high intensity fitness training. The days will end with an evening meal based mainly around local fresh and seasonal vegetables with lean meats and fish (vegetarians and vegans will be catered for).
Friday evening will be slightly different in that the group will head out for a wine tasting session followed by a meal in a lovely restaurant in Eymet.
There will be a final yoga or fitness session on the Saturday morning followed by a lazy brunch to end the retreat.

“Best vegan catering ever”. – Gordon, Manchester
“I loved the area, as soon as I got out of the car I felt relaxed. After doing the bike ride I noticed there was miles of area to do hikes or rides”. – Paul, Manchester
“The food, yoga, location and even the circuit training far exceeded my expectations. Plus everyone there was super friendly too, which made it a really lovely experience”.
“This was the first retreat I’ve attended and actually felt more like holidaying with friends rather than a health retreat with a bunch of strangers!” – Melanie, Manchester
