We escaped the dreary rain of England in the beginning of October 2019 and landed in paradise. A small village of ancient stone, warm locals and a grand maison; we were in store for 6 days of pure bliss. A 600 year old monastery played the home to a yoga and wellness retreat with the most wonderful people. The weather was in the high 20's every day which made the stunning stone plunge pool the perfect antidote to cool off in. We experienced a thunder and lightening storm one evening that lit up the giant crucifix in the front garden like a movie set. The food was sensational leaving all of the guests begging for Zoe to write a cook book. We ate out in a stunning seafood restaurant in a national park while watching pink flamingos from the windows. Each day was filled with another achievement as all of the guests had their personal victories in accomplishing yoga poses, meditations and breaking negative self talk habits. This retreat experience was truly magical and one I will hold dear to me for a very long time.
