Indulge in not only the beautiful surroundings and relaxation, but also the variety of courses on offer as well as local activities.

From yoga, French conversation and wine tasting, to health and fitness and cookery classes, courses can be organised to suit your requirements.

Enjoy the use of two heated swimming pools, Jacuzzis, a gym and yoga studio and table tennis on the retreat. You can also make the most of a host of local activities such as cycling, paddle boarding, sailing, windsurfing, surfing, tennis, golf or some relaxing massages and beauty treatments.

We can arrange lessons in any of these sea activities. If you would prefer something slower paced you can take in the beautiful Vendée coastline with a beach walk and some sightseeing. Rob Brooks, the retreat manager, will ensure that your stay is exactly what you are looking for, whether you wish to be pampered, active, relaxed or a mixture of all three, he will make sure your activities are arranged to suit, providing a smooth and hassle-free stay.

We are planning several fitness and yoga long weekends.
