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).

The first floor has a large open-plan 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 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 coloured 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 offers an open-planned yoga and workshop space, a shower room with toilet. 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.

Retreat location

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, and 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 famous Chateaubriant steak. It's a great place to explore during your free time and takes about 30 minutes to walk along a beautiful green route. %If you would rather reserve your energy, you can rest, relax, and rejuvenate among rolling hills in Yoga Thym's beautiful garden, taking advantage of their little splash pool or hot tub.
