....During the summer of 2018 I sadly lost my mother which was very emotional and very sudden.  It was at this point I was drawn to calling Kathy, booking and on a flight to France.  The whole weekend was very cathartic.  I was able to relax, face some of  my emotions and was able to feel at peace.  The hospitality, food, service and the retreat were all amazing.  Both Kathy and Robert treated me like a family member.  We laughed, I cried and totally relaxed.  So much so, that I have booked the house to celebrate my 50th birthday with four very close girlfriends.

An ideal place to share and make memories.  I shall always spend the weekend in September to remember my deal loving mother as I know she'll be looking  down on us.  Kathy and Robert are true gems.  This hideaway should be added to everyone's "bucket list".  Thank you both for giving back some love.  Justine."   2018

Personal Fitness and dietary guidance

If you want to incorporate fitness into your visit, I specialise in the over-40s although my London clients range from 16 years to 70's.  Exercise is for everyone at any age.   

Your fitness sessions could combat any fears, remove obstacles, give you the inner confidence, control and motivation you need... you'll feel so much better.  You might want tailored sessions for a special occasion, recover from an injury, learn safe exercises for a painful back whilst pregnant, or simply keep up with your exercise regime. It's all about what you need for your mind, body and soul wellbeing.

We have a good exercise bike as well as the saltwater pool and bodyweight exercises on the grass or decking.  If you believe in being fit in healthy and natural ways, you'll also benefit from dietary and healthy lifestyle advice and adaptations, grounding and stress management for a better future.  

My holistic teaching style can include flexibility, stretch, balance, exercise to music, Zumba, step, rebounder (in London), yoga and Pilates moves, kick-boxing, HIIT (high-intensity interval training), circuits, sport-specific training, visualisation, stress-relieving mindfulness, meditation and grounding techniques.  As an exercise instructor and PT for over 30 years and former jazz dance teacher, there's an exercise style for every body and everyone's personal tastes.  

Emerge feeling fitter, flexible, strong, balanced, connected and whole.   Contact me to discuss your requirements.
