What an incredible retreat
What an incredible retreat. Visiting for a long pilates weekend with a group of friends, Suzie and James welcomed us into their home from the moment we drove through the gates. I can honestly say that I haven’t felt as calm and relaxed in years.
Suzie’s pilates sessions were perfectly paced for the wide range of abilities in our group and easy to follow, with plenty of attentive guidance when we needed it. Best of all, the pilates studio was set in an open barn area, surrounded by the sounds of nature and fresh air. Truly special.
The house itself is a delight, with loads of character, comfortable bedrooms, large pool and pretty gardens. Set in beautiful countryside, close to the Pyrenees, Domaine du Pignoulet is the perfect base to explore the surrounding area.
Staying full board, we were treated to incredible fresh, home-prepared food, with a whole range of allergies and intolerances in our group being catered for without fuss. Being Coeliac, it was a treat to be looked after with wonderful meals without worry. The flourless Orange Cake and Cacao energy bites were divine!
A couple of days on and I am still reaping the benefits of the relaxation experienced. I feel privileged to have stayed in such a lovely place with such amazing people. Thank you so much Suzie and James for making our break with you so special. I truly hope that I will be back soon.
