About the Programme

 Relax, revitalise, re-balance…

In a world where our minds never stop and we find it difficult to switch off, this weekend is an opportunity to take a complete break and press the reset button for body and mind. You will be guided through simple – yet intensely powerful – meditation and relaxation sessions, which allow stress and tension to melt away. You will also learn techniques, which you can go forward to use in your daily life as required.

Slow down, switch off and tap into your inner reservoir of creativity, energy and peace. Delicious deep relaxation guaranteed! This weekend is a great introduction for those who have never experienced meditation, while more advanced practitioners can go deeper and strengthen their practice.                  

“Tension is who you think you should be…relaxation is who you are.”

About the Venue

Perched on a hilltop overlooking the rolling Cognac countryside, Chez Perot stands restful and serene. This period property is a hidden gem, surrounded by ancient trees and gardens which in spring yield flowers, fruit and vegetables. The interior of the house is a sensitive mélange of country comfort and luxurious modernity with large bedrooms, stylish furniture and an ample contemporary kitchen including an original bread oven. The grounds lend themselves to long walks and restful relaxation under the wisteria.
