"If you’re looking for a peaceful place to escape the rush and drag and grind of everyday life, then you needn’t look any further than Pure Heart Yoga Retreat. I have visited Maria’s retreat on several occasions and have always been impressed and delighted with each stay. Nestled in the quiet heartland of the French countryside in a gorgeously green setting, it feels like you’ve retreated completely from the bustle of the big cities while still being within easy reach of many incredible destinations worth exploring for their history and beauty. The old homestead has been completely renovated with all the comforts and facilities of modern living, but retains its rustic old-time charm and historical feel. I especially love the huge, crackling wood-burning fire place keeping the kitchen toasty during winter! The rooms are light and spacious with ridiculously comfortable beds, and the enormous old-style tub in the bathroom is a big draw card. Maria is an excellent host who does everything in her power to make your time there as memorable as possible, providing delicious home-cooked food and relaxing yoga sessions, and happily showing off her tranquil little town and its surrounds. Get yourself down to Pure Heart Yoga Retreat for an experience you won’t forget. "

"What an amazingly beautiful part of France to relax and reconnect. With only the church bells and bird song to break the silence, I would highly recommend Pure Heart Yoga Retreat. The renovated farm house accommodates a truly beautiful yoga studio and the hub of the house, the kitchen, draws you to sit and chat around the big table with many great meals of local market produce enjoyed throughout our stay. With a great balance of activity and rest, Maria has created a wonderful space."
