About the event
Are you looking for a joyful wellness experience in a gorgeous rural French setting? At last, a wellbeing retreat that isn’t about deprivation or counting calories, but instead promotes a sensory journey of nourishment. Convivial mealtimes which ritualistically mark the day and bring people together, a balanced approach to exercise and a respect for the healing power of sleep. This retreat is ideal for anyone feeling numb to the joys of life, lacking energy, struggling with sleep issues or simply wanting to learn new, helpful habits.
Are you interested in learning from a registered nutritionist and wellness expert about living well through nourishing self-care? Fiona Berry, a registered nutritionist, full-time wellness expert and founder of Itstheberries, has designed this luxurious rural escape to share her knowledge on how to enjoyably and sustainably improve your overall health. Acarefully curated programme mixes nutrition discussions (covering topics such as ‘mindful eating’ and ‘balancing energy’) with organic, wholefood, plant-based meals. Joyful balanced movement is also honoured, including mindful walking before breakfast to kickstart the circadian rhythm, guided meditation and yoga. Workshops in sleep management add an educational element, sharing gems of information to help repair broken sleeping patterns and aid recovery after prolonged periods of stress.
Would you like to eat delicious, vibrant, healthy meals and learn more about how to prepare great wholefood, plant-based food? Stephanie Cruchandeau, of Chef Naturelle, will be your guide to delicious food throughout the retreat. ‘I am inspired by the seasons and the healing benefits of food. I was brought up in the heart of French food culture which is all about bringing people together to enjoy the art of good food’, says Stéphanie. Expect a wholesome, accessible approach to food, far away from fads, which both satisfies and nourishes. As is traditional in France, Stéphanie prepares the main meal of the day at lunchtime following an eating pattern which many believe supports our bodies’ natural rhythms.
Come on your own or with friends and share a prefect retreat environment. Your private ensuite bedroom gives you the best of all retreat worlds, the privacy of your own comfortable space but also the opportunity to share your experience with a wonderful group. Great friendships are formed on our retreats.
A day in the life of the retreat includes plenty of “me” time. In your free time perhaps you’ll want to swim in the heated pool or play tennis or walk in the vineyards or simply kick back and read in a quiet cosy corner. Our fantastic therapist, Nadia, will be available for (pre-booked) deep tissue massages in the afternoons. The choice is yours!
This is slow French rural living at its best, in a region of France where huge pride is take in produce, and where a passionate Anglo/French team will support the relaxation of mind, body and soul. Ideal for anyone looking to live life with more energy, passion and a renewed sense of purpose. Discover your joie de vivre once more.
