Join author Dr Margaretha Montagu and indulge on a cultural wellness retreat France to indulge your senses - French Cultural Immersion & Camino de Santiago Walking Tour.
Have you always dreamt of living in a French farmhouse, surrounded by sunflower fields, of going to the weekly fresh food market to buy crusty French bread, succulent sun-ripened tomatoes and creamy, fragrant French cheese, of sitting down at a little table at a sidewalk café, sipping a petit crème and just watching the world go by? Now you can escape to the unspoiled and largely undiscovered southwest of France to an authentic, much-loved French farmhouse for 8 days of blissful contemplation of a completely different lifestyle.
Indulge your senses by visiting a bustling fresh food market, a kaleidoscope of sights, sounds and irresistible aromas, an intriguing antique shop, full of forgotten treasures, a world-famous annual music festival and flea market, by attending a sacred bread-baking ceremony, a yoga nidra practice while gazing at a million stars, an ancient connecting fire ceremony, by walking part of the unforgettable and life-changing Camino de Santiago de Compostela and discovering how to do walking meditation, by basking in the breathtaking beauty of a sunrise over the Pyrenées mountains, and by meeting some of the region's generous and gregarious women who will welcome you with open arms and open hearts, to Gascony, aka French Tuscany. During this wellness retreat, you will find out how you can use your senses to dramatically enrich your life, based on the age-old concepts that people here in the southwest of France have applied for centuries and that have given them some of the longest and most laid-back life spans in Europe.
Margaretha is the author of the Fabriqué en France book series, including Self-Confidence Made Simple - discover the secrets of 12 supremely self-confident French women. At the end of this wellness retreat, you will feel intensely alive, profoundly rested, serenely contented, positively radiant, intangibly irresistible, irrepressibly energetic, bien dans votre peau… and at least ten years younger, much like those enviable French women who manage to age so elegantly, despite eating and drinking to their hearts’ content, and live happy and healthy lives well into their nineties.
The Scottish Highlands are easy to visualize. Misty moors, lush glens, ancient castles and the rapture of folklore (or is it folklore?) surrounding mythic sea creatures. The verdant isles, jagged coastline, shimmering cities and deep lochs are the views that a dram of whisky were designed for!
