nature & nurture retreats
The Dordogne is full of abundance in every season, wake up to sunshine every day, attend an early morning yoga and meditation practice, eat nutritious freshly-prepared vegetarian food and spend the rest of the day being fully immersed in the retreat and yourself. There is time to walk in the countryside, meditate in our natural space in the woods, swim in the refreshing waters of the river or our sparkling swimming pool and visit local markets and attractions. Come visit us and take time out in one of the most beautiful parts of France – the Dordogne region.
Creativity is at the heart of everything we do and our intention of nature & nurture retreats is for you to explore your creative expression and to connect amidst the beauty of nature enhanced by our holistic approach to every aspect of your stay.

A Summer retreat is a wonderful time to feel refreshed and restored. Walk along ancient pathways and feel the energy of the sun.
Our immune systems are truly remarkable; this complex system has the ability to produce a million specific antibodies within a minute and to recognise and disarm a billion different harmful invaders.
An Autumn retreat is a wonderful way of slowing down and feeling the change in season.
Autumn, a slow transition between the energy of summer and the stillness of winter, a time for reflection, balance and contemplation.
This retreat is about awakening and connecting with our mind and body.
Yoga is not just about learning to stand on your head but also standing on your own two feet when life gets tough.
The stories behind the food we eat and the impact our food choices have at both a local and global level from dairy to coconut and soya to tomatoes.
“Nothing in nature lives for itself. Rivers don’t drink their own water. Trees don’t eat their own fruit. Sun doesn’t give heat for itself. Flowers don’t spread fragrance for themselves. Living for others is the rule of nature. And therein lies the secret of life. ”Amit Gupta
