The retreat is a fitness holiday for people seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of life, to reset and refresh, whilst also enjoying being active and challenged physically.

This retreat is built on a strong ‘opt in’ format, which means you can get involved with as much or as little of the extra activities as you like, so that the retreat is completely individual to each person, depending on what you want to prioritise.

Daily workouts will include a morning high intensity weighted fitness workout, and in the evenings, a barre class followed by a stretch/mobility class. All workouts will take place outdoors in the fresh air and daylight, making the most of the warmer climate and beautiful surroundings.

During the day between workouts, there are additional ‘opt in’ activities (at cost price - cost is extra), which include: horse riding, wild swimming, and a day trip to Limoges - a beautiful town with food markets, botanical gardens, Cathedral and many French boutique shops. You can choose to participate in as many of these activities as you like. Or subsequently, you can take the time for yourself to go for a solo explore of the local area, go for a walk through the orchard, or relax by the pool on the property and read a book.

The Manoir itself is an 18th Century manor farmhouse, with acres to explore, stylish vintage and homespun collected interiors, a pool to splash in, and views that will feed your soul and calm your mind. The location is the rural landscape of Nouvelle Aquitaine, Limousin, a region often referred to as ‘the French Lake District’. All food and non-Alcoholic drinks are included. The resident chef takes care of all cooking and the menu will change daily, with both vegan, vegetarian, and meat/fish options. All dietary requirements can be accommodated.

Alcohol is optional, giving you the choice to have a detox week, or sample the local wine in the evening in one of many rooms on the property, or outside on the patio.

The retreat has been designed so that all you need to do is turn up, and we take care of everything else.
