The Team

We host and collaborate with experienced health practitioners and yoga teachers that compliment the ethos and teachings at Little French Retreat. Practitioners come from around the globe to share their knowledge and facilitate retreats.

Tamsin Chubb

Founder of Little French Retreat, yogi, and vegetarian cook. She is never without her camera, admires those who have an altruistic heart, has an eclectic selection of books, likes Jazz and travelling to countries out of season when you get to see the truth of a place. More details about Tamsin can be found on pages; classes, food, about.


Lina Bou

Lina is a nutritional therapist, creative cook and artist that will be joining the team in April, September and October. She has worked for different health and food companies in Sweden and France. Now freelance, she cooks for different yoga travels and other events around France and the world. For Lina, to cook is to create and it is a passion she does with her heart. Intuition is very important, she has very few rules when she cooks but the essential rules are to cook with feeling, care and that she enjoys what she is creating.

Resident cat and nonchalant observer. Rescued from a local centre, she'd obviously had a good life before as she is very trusting and made the place her own very quickly. She's partial to a belly rub and foot massage. 

Edie and Lucien

Edie and Lucien

Resident hounds and love hustlers that like to sun-worship , snooze, stretch and fetch.  Both rescue dogs arrived in 2016. Edie was living as a puppy in the wild with her mum and siblings before being rescued, arriving with us at 6 months old. Lucien was very skinny and sad when he arrived.  Now both have a home, they are the best of friends, happy and healthy again.
