It is said that you never forget your first love: the way your heart fluttered at every thought of them, the way they made you feel, that time when all was good. This is how we feel about Le Tournié, the site of our very first retreat. This is a magnificent property set on twenty rolling acres in a small hamlet in rural south west France, a place where we come to relax, enjoy the company of others and use as a springboard to active excursions in the vicinity. Think summer camp that’s grown up and gone chic.

Every day, optional morning and evening workouts will bookend an adventure off the property. It’s an active week with plenty of time to relax and unwind. Please note that to make the most of this trip, you should be able to swim at least 25 metres and also know how to ride a bike.
