La Chouette

La Chouette, is the French word for ‘owl’. So it seems very appropriate that this room, once used an apartment, is now our Library room. Because we have so much material about good healthy delicious nutrition, it made sense to find somewhere to store it. And we wanted to make sure that it was accessible to our guests too.

As well as having a wide choice of healthy and nutritious reading, the room also has very comfortable seating. So you can stretch out – or curl up! – and relax with a good book. There’s also a small kitchen area, where you can make yourself hot or cold drinks, and a dining table and chairs. It’s the perfect place to chill out, or learn more about creating your own delicious and nutritious food and drinks.

Because it is such a peaceful room, it is also a wonderful sanctuary – a tranquil place to escape. So if you ever need time and space to gather your thoughts, just head over to La Chouette.

The best ‘me time’ retreat!

A beautifully holistic wellbeing experience with the loveliest of people. I thought the 2 x 90 minutes of yoga a day would be way too much. But I got so much out of it and enjoyed every minute. Shruti, resident yogi, was by far and away the best and most intuitive instructor I’ve ever had. And I achieved far more during the week than I would have thought possible – and her massages were sublime too!

The nutrition workshops, visit to a permaculture farm and sharing of knowledge were all fascinating and certainly gave me a lot of food for thought! (pun intended!). Thank you Ross and Neil and all of the other interesting and lovely guests I shared my week with. I’ll be back.

After the recent loss of my husband I went to Maison de Lunel for some recuperation and ‘me time’. I was not disappointed. The team are kind generous and extremely knowledgeable. I left a very different person – healthy and full of positivity. Beautiful setting and very comfortable rooms, and nothing is too much trouble. The juices and soup were delicious and I can honestly say I was never hungry. The daily yoga was perfect – with individual attention – and suitable for everyone. I do not have a negative word to say and will definitely be going back. Rest and relaxation, but enough activity so you don’t get bored.

Fabulous, luxurious, informative and restorative. A real retreat treat!

My first experience of a retreat and I certainly picked the right one! From the moment I arrived I felt welcomed, valued and invested in. Ross and Neil couldn’t do enough for me and the other ladies. They are incredibly warm and passionate about what they do and I found it both relaxing and challenging whilst learning a great deal about the benefits of juicing and good nutrition – all of which I have carried on now I have left the retreat. The yoga sessions with Shruti were amazing and I loved every minute of my time there. The location is superb with wonderful facilities. I will hopefully be returning sometime in the not too distant future and I would highly recommend it to anyone considering a retreat.
