Home for the duration of your retreat is a cosy country house surrounded by an idyllic garden, in the historic village of Montesquieu.
The atmosphere in the house is homely and welcoming, and guests are encouraged to make full use of it. With just three guest bedrooms and meals served en famille, it’s warm and convivial experience.
Down time is yours to do as you please. Borrow a book from the library and cosy up by the wood burning stove in the living room, or find a private spot in the garden and soak up the views. We have bikes you can use and can point you in the direction of some lovely walks and cycling routes alongside nearby rivers and canals.
The house comprises of 215m2 on three levels. There are three double bedrooms offering single or shared accommodation, each with ensuite bathrooms and a separate teachers room, providing space for seven in total. Rooms are in neutral shades with high quality mattresses and pure cotton bed linen to ensure a good nights sleep. Towels and shower products are provided for each guest.
On the ground floor is a comfortable living room with wood burning stove, spacious kitchen and dinning area that leads out onto the veranda, shaded under the pergola. The terraced garden is split between three areas and covers an acre, offering scenic views and the perfect spot to sunset gaze every evening.
We share our space with our rescue hounds; Lucien and Edie and two cats Suri and Billie Jean. We think our disarming love hustlers add a little extra warmth to the retreat experience, yet we are mindful of others and so they are not allowed in guest rooms and the yoga area for those that may have allergies.
Shared verses a single room?
”It was my first yoga retreat. Although it was advertised for beginners, I was a bit anxious that I wouldn’t be able to keep up and didn’t know what to expect from the other participants. What if it all got too intense? So I requested a single room, thinking I might need the solitude. A single wasn’t available but I am now so thankful for this. I had a lovely roommate, with whom I could talk about the sessions, check out my reactions and yet feel I still had space when I needed to get away. We were seamlessly respectful of each others’ needs and boundaries. I imagine anyone who comes on a retreat of this type, focused on self-exploration and understanding the benefits of Yoga and Ayurvedic approaches, would be a similar gentle, kind soul. We have remained friends. Thanks to the universe for putting us together!” - Susan, Discover Yoga Retreat.
