The main house has a French manorial feel with high ceilings, lots of beams and typical decoration. Adjacent to the main house there are three attached cottages with a simpler, rustic feel of roof beams and exposed stonework.
All rooms from the bedrooms & bathrooms to the communal spaces, are generously proportioned and comfortably furnished.
The large salt water swimming pool is for your exclusive use and is available all day.
With 74 acres to explore the estate is perfect for walking. There are woods with ancient trees and protected species of flora and fauna, bordering a small river. Open fields and rolling countryside merge seamlessly into nature.
We have excellent local massage therapists available, who should be paid in euros cash. There are two dedicated therapy rooms in the main house.
WIFI is connectable in the majority the buildings though can’t be guaranteed in every bedroom due to the heavy stone walling.

Our retreat begins at 5pm Saturday 25th June, ending 10am Saturday 2nd July. Please bear this in mind when booking your travel arrangements.
I would suggest travelling by train if at all possible, as it is better for the environment and you will arrive fresher and usually less stressed!
The best connected station to our retreat venue is Bordeaux St Jean, with a 40mins drive from there.
Coming from the UK you can book the entire journey on the Eurostar website selecting Bordeaux as your desitnation, with just one change in either Lille (the easiest) or Paris (you need to change stations, but we have tips on how to do this).
