    "Perfect little time out, dedicated and experienced hosts"

    I enjoyed the stay at La Borde Blanque quite a lot, because the host Elleke, her husband Peter and their two friendly dogs made you feel very welcomed and were passionate for helping. The house is situated in a beautiful yet remote piece of nature where you can have nice views and stargazing, and enjoy fresh water of their own source that even comes out of the shower, so my skin felt great. The cook Marianne prepared just lovely plantbased food with optional french cheese and egg in it, being inspired by the kitchen of Indonesia, India, Mexiko or France, for example. There was plenty of food and tea. As for the program, I especially enjoyed the hike in the fairytale-like woods at New Year's. The yoga/meditation room is just gorgeous with a very inspiring atmosphere. Every morning meditation ended with a sharing session in which Peter and Elleke showed their professionality and their long-term experience in working with human beings and their inner insights which was fascinating to take part.

    "Une magnifique découverte"

    Le domaine de la Borde Blanque est magnifique, accueillant et tellement apaisant.

    Peter et Elleke sont deux personnes magnifiques, bienveillantes, et généreuses. Ils ont tout fait pour que l'on se sente bien durant notre sejour et nous ont tant apporté.

    Les matinées en silence permettent d'emerger à sonrythme et de se centrer.

    Les sessions de yoga nous ont montré la grande diversité de cette pratique.

    Elleke a un talent tout particulier pour enseigner les principes du yoga et nous apporter des réponses justes et sensibles.

    La méditation a été pour moi une vraie découverte et Elleke a su nous guider sur ce chemin.

    Nous avons tous profité des soins de Peter qui nous ont beaucoup aidé et poursuivent leur travail.

    Tous les autres moments de partage ont toujours été très ouverts et enrichissants et nos hotes ont eu la patience de répondre à nos centaines de questions.

    En fait tout a été très positif. Il ne reste plus qu'à savoir quand je pourrai y retourner.

    Merci beaucoup poir ce magnifique moment.

    This retreat was absolutely fabulous : the surroundings, the quality of the food, the yoga and meditation teachings, the teacher Elleke, her family, the vibe... As the week went by, I felt my connection with the place and the participants went deeper and deeper. It's hard to explain what I felt there : you have to check it out for yourself ;-). Thank you so much, Elleke. Karin
