For those who are seeking an impromptu break from the city for a weekend without wanting to travel too far, consider France to indulge in pamper sessions overlooking the great outdoors with a retreat in France.

A destination flourishing in romance and renaissance art and culture also serves home to pristine rural countryside grounds and whimsical woodlands. Approximately two hours away from London on an international train service, France is simply a stretch away, ideal for those wishing to take a short and simple retreat from the city for the weekend or a couple of days. With the magical settings nature has to offer, abuzz with life, choose a wellbeing retreat in France for a hassle-free getaway and life-enhancing experiences.

Shuffle your priorities while embracing the French outdoors in a range of classes hosted by teachers specialising in their fields. At the end of each session, enjoy a sound night’s sleep surrounded and lulled by the soothing sounds of nature. The French are typically praised for their effortlessly calm and serene way of life, which forms the parameters of the each programme held in France. Offering guests the opportunity to experience various treatments and classes, at the end of the retreat, guests will be armed with the essential tools to upkeep a balanced lifestyle independently at home.

For those looking to return to nature to establish a new relationship with themselves, a retreat in France is an option. Surrounded by the wonderful woodlands and laurel forests where the only distraction is the chirping morning birds and leaves whistling in the wind.

Sourcing mineral water from the French Alps and fresh ingredients from home-grown garden farms, each meal is carefully considered and carries an authentic taste of France.

For the curious individuals, take a hike along the soft soil ground or lounge in the outdoor patio with a book. Lose yourself in a maze of wonder and curiosity on a short weekend break zoned into the French outdoors as never experienced before.

Why a retreat in France?

Often misunderstood as being two things the same, although the definition of a retreat and a holiday share a similar definition, the approaches and the results vary. A retreat is an immersive and unique getaway from the comfort of home and haste of everyday life. The aim is to establish a new balance and to align the body with the mind. An option would be escaping to the forests to spend the weekend in a wooden cabin, engaging in breathing exercises and lying still to gaze at the twinkling stars at night.

Every retreat is a new opportunity to relish in an unforgettable experience. Choose a retreat and programme to suit your own needs and begin choreographing your path of balance.
