Roll on next year
I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect from my weekend and was pleasantly blown away at every element.
The rooms are spacious and clean, and the beds were super comfy beds. We didn’t spend very much time in our rooms, but had a lovely view when we did. The night sky is just stunning!
The food was incredible, and with multiple allergies to cater for, Susie and James really were up against it. Far from underwhelming “free from” processed nonsense, they put some serious effort into ensuring our party of 10 ate together in an inclusive way, which is really important to people who feel excluded everywhere they eat. The local wines are delectable, and don’t give you a hangover the next day!
We had brilliant weather for September, and were able to spend a few hours by the pool each day, which was amazing considering it had started getting chilly back home in the UK.
The pilates classes were the bonus for me, and although I’ve not done pilates for many years, I really enjoyed them. Susie’s teaching skills are phenomenal, and it’s made me want to continue practising locally. Coming home with sore abs felt like a rite of passage.
I cannot thank Susie and James enough for their hospitality, and I shall be recommending Pignoulet to every single person I know. Roll on our retreat next year 🙂
