The retreat was amazing. Set in stunning, peaceful surroundings, friendly and attentive staff, clean, comfortable rooms and an excellent choice and quality of food, we couldn't have wished for more! It was 5 days of bliss! 


The retreat was wonderful, staff so friendly and helpful. Lot of guests were people who went every year or so! The right mix of freedom to do what wanted and able to change your programme as wished (subject to availability). The instructors and therapists were all really good and most appeared to have been there for at least a few years, remembering previous visitors etc.


All the treatments were expertly delivered making me feel completely relaxed and welcome at all times. The Cacoa ceremony was incredible and had a profound effect on me as did the Sound healing session . The Life coaching session with Sylvi were extremely illuminating and how very fortunate you are to have such an intuitve and talented coach. Nathalia and Nathalie were expert in their yoga sessions and I felt revived and calm especially after their medidtation sessions.


The dining room staff similary had the same sense of welcome and nothing was ever too much trouble and the food expertly explained. The food was excellent every meal was a joy to my palette, so very memorable.The idea of a Shared table was a clever one and one young woman I invited to sit with me said she was very nervous and how nice it was to be able to sit with others. This group all agreed our stay had been excellent and we would all be returning next year.

The atmosphere was one of calm and peace perfect for unwinding and feeling a world away from the hustle outside. The staff on the reception desk always calm and capable, the everday running of the hotel was unseen and seamless.
