About Ceangal​

Ceangal – pronounced ‘key-angle’ – is an Irish word which means ‘connect’ or ‘link’.  It is a word that resonates with both of us and speaks to why we’re on this adventure and also perhaps what we can create along the way – whether it’s hosting a Mindfulness Weekend, encouraging friends and family to visit or meeting new people and making new friends. 

We are immensely grateful to artist Kazuaki Tanahashi for his permission to use the Zen Circle (above) which perfectly reflects the spirit of Ceangal.

Ceangal is the creation of Olive & Charlie – an Irish couple on a French adventure – passionate about creating well-being programmes in beautiful settings across the Cognac region. Their breaks create the space for a very special experience. As featured in the Irish Times, quality instruction is complemented by an authentic French experience, from the local food and wine you will enjoy, to the visits to some very special local attractions...
