Pleasures of Provence
Immerse yourself in the cultural and culinary worlds of Provence, one of France’s most storied destinations. Be a part of history while making memories in Provence. Prepare for your soul to be nourished and your mind to expand.
Seven amazing days, six blissful nights in Provence…..La vie est belle.
Your home base will be the stunning Château St. Victor la Coste. “The Château nestles in a sleepy little village of the same name, 20 minutes north west of Avignon. Surrounded by vineyards and stunning forests this is Cote de Rhone country, elegant wines, wonderful produce such as local wild mushrooms, honey sweet melons from Cavaillon, wild strawberries from Carpentras, pungent green olive oil, tomatoes busting with flavor. The sun shines fiercely against the cloudless azure sky and the air is pure and clean. The only noise is the cicadas in the cypress trees. The Chateau is a stroll from the wonderful old church and the Mairie.” You’ll wonder why you ever put up with less than magical before.
Imagine strolling through the cobble-stoned streets of French villages and the medieval walled villages of Provence. Stopping for a freshly baked baguette, enjoying people watching as you sip un café. Touring vineyards and tasting wines from their specific terroir. Walking the magnificent Pope’s Palace in Avignon where Popes and Kings alike have lived.
The South of France is a foodie paradise. Our food will be lovingly prepared. We’ll have a private chef for meals at our home base, or we’ll be sampling the area’s freshest and most delicious offerings. Local wines and other seasonal offerings from Provence will be at your disposal.
What’s included? Travel and Transformation!
Your retreat payment includes three meals a day. Six nights accommodation in a gorgeous room with your own private bathroom. No sharing!
All of the private tours and excursions. A car service to take you to and from the airport. A massage to help you relax fully into your getaway. Yoga on a grassy plateau. Time to meditate or daydream. Basically: everything but airfare and souvenirs.
And of course…
Life coaching, self-development, and well-being. I want to ensure that you leave the retreat feeling clear-headed, energized and calm, ready to set new goals and life practices once you return home. All you need to do is show up with an open heart and be ready for the time of your life.
Dates: Arrive Sunday, September 23
Depart Saturday, September 29
Breakfast. Yoga and/or meditation to help you set an intention for the day. Or use the time to journal, daydream, and let your heart soar with the beauty surrounding you.
A workshop on the topic of the day: clarifying your purpose through values, setting goals, saying “no,” dealing with fear and resistance, or clearing distractions—for starters.
Private guided tour of medieval walled villages around Provence, the Pope’s Palace, or a trip to an open-air market. Plus independent time for writing, reflecting, and exploring the grounds surrounding our retreat venue. Down time is essential for reflecting, absorbing, and learning. And you’ll want time to enjoy the splendor of the château.
Dinner prepared by an onsite chef, lively conversation and laughter into the night! We’ll have a special soirée our last evening together.
Your retreat price of $6000 includes everything you need to have the perfect pampered Provence getaway–everything but the souvenirs! Just make your airfare reservation into the Marseille airport. (You can also fly into Paris and take the TGV to Avignon.) Your private driver will take you to the château.
Your deposit of $600 in May holds your space. Then make either five monthly payments of $1080, or three payments of $1800 (balance must be paid in full by September 1). Pay in full by May 25, 2018 and your price is reduced to $5400.*

*Please note: I do not offer refunds for retreat deposits. Why? Because people let fear get the best of them and start thinking about all the ‘reasons’ they shouldn’t take time for themselves. Instead of cancelling, how about this? Clear your calendar. Claim this time. Make it happen. Show up for yourself and for the life that you want.
