1st - 5th JULY 2020


Featured on Channel 4's Escape To The Chateau DIY! 


I'd love for you to join me for a truly special yoga holiday experience at Chateau de Montvason for five days of yoga, freshly prepared food, workshops, beach yoga, meditation and total relaxation.


It is my aim to help you let go of your stress and feel a sense of freedom and joy. 


Based in the beautiful French countryside, where the only sound is birdsong, Chateau de Montvason has been restored to its former luxurious glory. Each room has its own character and glamour making this the perfect space to unwind in style.

As the weather will be warm we will be taking a trip for some beach yoga followed by free time to have some fun in the sun and sea. As well as the beautiful white sandy beaches of Normandy, Chateau de Montvason has a gorgeous heated pool complete with a sun deck and lounging furniture around the pool making it the perfect place to simply be - perhaps with a glass of French wine in hand too.


If you love the glamour of the Art Deco and Art Nouveau eras then your home for five days will feel like heaven. Picture original 20s and 30s antiques, decadent bespoke comfy beds in lavishly decorated bedrooms, tranquil salons for reclining with your favourite book or in conversation with another guest, along with brilliant retro detailing - peacock feathers, disco balls and a hand painted oriental inspired reception room. 


There will be plenty of time for you to explore the stunning chateau grounds as well as daily yoga and meditation and few sessions of the dreamiest thing of all - evening yoga nidra around the fire pit. This is truly the best way to a restful nights sleep. By the end of the five days you will feel refreshed, light and free.


This is a special and supportive space where you can enjoy health promoting practices, a treatment of your choice from reiki or Indian head massage and time for you. As I said, this is not your typical retreat. This is your time to uplift your energy, have some fun and nourish your soul.


This is just to give you an idea of what our weekend might look like. I will be spending time drawing together inspiration for the retreat and so this schedule is subject to change. During your stay you will have time for your treatment of either Reiki or Indian Head Massage, more details regarding your choice of treatment will be shared with you ahead of time.

There are a few ways to get here including


  • Flights from London Southend airport to Caen airport - the chateau is approx 1 hour drive from the airport

  • By car either through the channel tunnel to Calais (which is approx just over 4 hours from Calais to the chateau) or via ferry from Poole or Portsmouth to Cherbourg (approx 25 mins from Cherbourg to the chateau).

Flight prices and times aren't available just yet but I will update here as soon as they are. If you wish to travel this way, transfers can be arranged at a small extra cost. Please let me know if you would like to take up this option as it could be arranged that you share the transfer with other guests for a more social and economic.


Or if you'd prefer to travel on your own, you can rent a car inexpensively from the airport. There are many interesting stops along the way from the airport including the Bayeux Tapestry and many D-Day beaches.



"I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed and needed the retreat. The mix of people was so interesting, and everybody so lovely. Your attention to detail was amazing and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. I particularly liked that we were in the middle of nowhere and had no distractions. I will definitely be coming again, should you run any more." 


"I really liked the Ayurvedic workshops as I’ve only ever been to one workshop which touched upon it briefly. The handouts were a lovely touch and a nice momento of the retreat. The rooms were lovely – a really nice space and I appreciated the fact they were private and not shared with strangers. Being in the countryside was amazing, it was so lovely, quiet and peaceful. I preferred your yoga classes to all of the others though, as on previous retreats they have been much too slow for my liking. The food provided at Nourish Yoga Retreat was WAY nicer too!" 


"I loved the Ayurveda info..wanted more! Amazing food..well done. Loved it all, the surroundings outside were perfect!"
