During this retreat, you will stay at home from home accommodation, Nikki's home, a quaint 300-year-old farmhouse set in the peace and tranquility of the Breton countryside, surrounded by four acres of private farmland. The ground floor offers two double bedrooms used for single occupancy, comfortably decorated with French style double beds, and a large shared family bathroom (toilet, wet-room style shower, and deep bath), two further shower cubicles, and toilet.

The first floor has a large open planned kitchen / diner with a huge oak farmhouse table seating up to twelve, a utility with washing machine, a garden room used as a quiet space for reading, a toilet, a salon with wood burner, and double French doors leading to the terraced garden featuring a wisteria pergola, plunge pool, hot-tub, and garden furniture. The immediate enclosed garden is full of colored flowers, trees, and secret areas to explore during the pauses and relaxation breaks.

Across the driveway is the lodge, a converted stone-built stable block. The ground floor is now an open-planned yoga and workshop space with a small lounging area for breaks and a shower room with toilet. French doors from the open space leads to a small, secret terrace. The upper floor has two double bedrooms for single occupancy, a shared bathroom with bath and sink, a separate toilet, and Nikki's private treatment room. Within one kilometer is a green route which is perfect for meditation walks in the beautiful countryside. The benefits of coming to stay in Nikki's 300-year old farmhouse are too numerous to list. Everything you need is already there, other than your personal items, like clothes and money. Such a great advantage!

  • Nikki Harris

    Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Yoga)

    Ontmoet je instructeur - Nikki. Met meer dan 19 jaar ervaring in holistische therapieën geeft ze haar volledige aandacht, inzicht en energie.

This journey of peace, clarity, and inspiration to transform your mind and body is set among idyllic rural countryside in north-west France. The region is known as La Pays de le Loire. Whether you arrive by plane, train, or car, the venue is easily accessible from the U.K. or Europe. Chateaubriant is a large market town situated between the cities of Rennes in the north and Nantes to the south.

Chateaubriant is always visible on route maps due to its remarkable history in royal connections, resistance during world war two, Victor Hugo, and, of course, the Chateaubriant steak. You can rest, relax, and rejuvenate among rolling hills and private fishing lakes, only a five minute drive from the center of town. The retreat venue is located 5 minutes to a large shopping area.

  • Chateaubriant city center - 5 minutes

On a Yoga Thym retreat, even the delicious vegetarian meals are part of the program. Known locally as the queen of puddings, Sylvie the cook, will provide you with an array of wonderful dishes that will tempt and tantalize your senses.

Between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m., you will enjoy a buffet-style breakfast in the farmhouse kitchen / diner, choosing from cereals, yogurts, fruit, toast with homemade jams, croissants, and pain au chocolates.

Mouth-wateringly scrumptious lunches are served al fresco during the summer months between 1.15 p.m. and 2 p.m. Afternoon tea is served around 4 p.m. with a tempting selection of homemade cakes. And, if you're still hungry, a satisfying evening meal and delicious dessert is ready around 6.30 p.m. with an optional glass of local wine.

Everything is lovingly prepared using only the fresh of ingredients that are locally sourced, many of them are grown by Laurie on Yoga Thym's own veggie patch. All beverages including tea, coffee, fruit teas, water, soft drinks, chocolate, and fruit juice are available throughout the day, too.

Your day is organized to obtain maximum results during your short stay. However, Yoga Thym has a well-stocked library with every book genre to choose from. Most guests love relaxing in the beautiful garden with a book or taking a nap in the warm sunshine. The surrounding countryside is breathtaking, so a stroll along the 'green-route' is a favorite too.

There is time to take a refreshing dip in the plunge pool, or a soak in the hot-tub (summer only) while watching the International Space Station orbit overhead or stargaze at the clear night skies.

For an additional price, you can book a deep floral bath followed by a 30-minute aromatherapy treatment, a stress busting deep tissue massage, a Thai yoga massage, or a full program of extra treatments that are always available to book during your stay.

    Fantastic break!

    CONS Contra's: Only the weather!

    PROS Pro's: Really made noticeable improvement with my yoga in just a few days. The meditation was just what I needed. Traveling there and back was very smooth. Only an hour flight from Birmingham to Renne and Nikki picked me up and took me back. Family so helpful and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble.

    "Spending a week in your retreat has made me realise the importance of treating myself well enabling me to be at my best. You developed an amazing program and it's flexibility in tailoring it to my needs made it more effective. I feel rejuvenated and ready to take on the world. I will make you proud someday. "

    "I'm in awe with your varied skills and your personality is inspirational. You and your parents are an absolute joy to be around. Sylvie's cooking is heavenly especially for people like me who enjoys good food. The desserts are just too good, I couldn't resist! Your father's calmness and great sense of humour is refreshing! The farmhouse is like a mini paradise, full of beautiful creatures and flowers. I loved every minute of my stay and I look forward to doing it all over again in the near future. Thank you so much for everything and most of all ...thank you for being your lovely self. You are like the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow! Namaste "

    "I've just come back from a 4 night retreat, and i feel energised, focused and it was a really positive experience. Nikki, Sylvi and Lori made me feel so welcome, and at ease. The practices and workshops gave me so many idea and useful tips to help in daily situations. Nikki's teaching methods are gentle, informative and she has a way of passing on things she has learnt in a straight forward and comfortable way. The Thai Yoga massage really was good, and although I had some yoga practice, it really has improved. My meditation hopefully will gradually get better, but i have lots of tools and ideas to draw on now."

    "Their beautiful home is roughly 2 miles, i'd guess, from the town of Chateabriant and there is a cycle path near them which makes a visit very easy and enjoyable. And is worth a visit."

    "Fresh and lovingly prepared food is cooked by Sylvi and shared by all. I was very lucky to have some of the workshop time with Matt, a friend of Nikki's, and the whole experience for me was amazing. Thank you all so much. Nor"

    "Lovely four-night break with Nikki and her family. I loved the yoga and meditation practice and Sylvie's vegetarian food was gorgeous. I would definitely recommend if you need a bit of "me time" and my break was excellent value for money. I especially loved quiet time in the garden with my book."

    "I spent the last ten days of June here on a retreat and loved every minute of it. Nikki and her family are so welcoming and it really felt like a home away from home. The personal development workshops are truly life changing, whether you're feeling stuck or have specific life issues you want to address. I can't recommend the retreat enough, everything from the accommodation to the food,the yoga and the workshops are wonderful. I've left feeling more at peace, more positive and looking forward to my future whatever it holds. I really can't recommend here highly enough!"
