    "A wonderfully nourishing week; mentally, physically and nutritionally! I have always loved Barre but had never tried the original barre class, Lotte Berk technique. It is the perfect class to do daily and within the most gorgeous idyllic setting, alongside a great bunch of ladies whom, despite me being shy, I had lovely conversations with each and every one of them. The atmosphere was very welcoming. The food was delicious, the massages were great and the trips out and about to get a real taste of French life in this beautiful area were delightful! Country walks, French markets, art and historical buildings. This is the perfect way to treat yourself to a French escape but also feel fabulous and fit by the end!"

    "I loved Tina’s Lotte Berk Retreat weekend. The teaching was brilliant with a good mix of exercises in every class and fab music. My leg muscles were groaning going up the stairs on day 3 but by day 4, the aches had all but disappeared and I could feel myself getting stronger. I had a sports massage on the last day and can honestly say it was the best I’ve ever had...incredibly thorough and amazing value. The food prepared and cooked by Christopher was sublime. He used local fresh ingredients to make perfect meals that nailed it every time. All of this in a beautiful house with great company.  What more can I say,  apart  from: I’ll be back..."

    "If you wish to combine improving your fitness with eating delicious food in wonderful surroundings look no further than going to Tina’s house for a Lotte Berk experience. I went in September 2019, and enjoyed every minute. In terms of exercise, I was very surprised at how much more toned and flexible I felt after 5 days. It really made a difference. Christopher, the chef, cooked all our meals from local ingredients. The day started with a smoothie plus a varied breakfast, then a healthy lunch and a more substantial 3 course meal in the evening, accompanied with some delicious wines. During the day, we did a variety of activities either relaxing around the pool, going on walks, visiting a sculpture park or going to the market. Overall it was a delightful way to spend five days."



    “5 stars - Wonderful!
    If you enjoy beautiful surroundings, great food and the best barre class EVER then this is the perfect choice! I was recommended this retreat by a friend and went on my own, not knowing anybody. I must say that it didn’t disappoint on any level. If you choose to go you will enjoy every aspect and come home feeling energised and a big bit spoiled!Do it - it’s amazing!"
