A real French treat!

2nd - 5th July 2021

Experience a long weekend with Molly Melhuish starting Friday and ending Monday.  The retreat includes 8 classes and a walk with meditation, with accommodation and breakfast provided.

Set in the majestic French Cognac countryside of the Charente Maritime with easy access to Cognac, Bordeaux, Jonzac and La Rochelle, our retreat centre offers you a truly tranquil respite from everyday living: fabulous food, massage, meditation and yoga classes for everyone.

There is a sitting room for relaxing, a formal dining room and a fully equipped kitchen.  We offer a swimming pool, exercise facilities and also a myriad of quiet spaces for total relaxation.  All the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and have linen and both bath and separate pool towels.  Basic toiletries are provided and toilet roll.  The kitchen is fully equipped with crockery, cutlery, pans and the necessary linen.  Our aim is for you to experience a feeling of total comfort and ease as you enjoy the many delights of Chez Vallée and perhaps take the opportunity to explore the vineyards and the local area.


Flights run direct from London Gatwick and Bristol and transfers and car hire can be arranged.

I have arranged for us all to have an in-house three course vegetarian meal during the evening of arrival.  This will cost £20 per person.  Please feel free to bring your own wine.  For the Saturday evening meal, I have booked a table in nearby restaurant Le Comptoir du Marche.  A three course meal there is set @ 27 euros per person.  The Sunday evening is free for you to dine as you choose, whether self-catering, in-house, or restaurant.
