Our Environment

BEAUTIFUL YOGA WITH SOOTHING ENVIRONMENT

The natural pool provides the perfect location for Tranquillités yoga sessions.  Position yourself on the decking which is surrounded by large trees in the most secluded spot. The slight breeze and the pool create a feeling of escapism and being at one with nature.

Relaxing Location

Yoga sessions may also be held in the yoga room, which is situated within the main cottage. The original stone walling, high ceiling and exposed beams provide the perfect feeling of tranquillity.

FOOD & DRINK

During your stay, all meals will be freshly prepared using locally sourced, organic and wholesome ingredients.

Joe, our resident chef has a passion for cooking nutritious, yet tasty, food. His menus are carefully prepared, so you feel healthy, satisfied and energised throughout your stay.

We respect that everyone has different preferences, tastes, beliefs and intolerances so we provide food which is varied and tailored to meet the individual needs of our guests.

“The quality of food exceeded my expectations. I’m a typical meat and 2 veg fussy eater who refused to eat loads of stuff when I was young. However, the food was excellent, I really enjoyed every meal and felt like I was eating healthily” – Paul

Breakfasts

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and there is always plenty to choose from to ensure you will be fully satisfied and energised for the day ahead. We provide wholesome options including homemade granola, fruit salads, smoothies, wheat free pancakes, omelettes and quinoa porridge.

Lunches

We offer buffet style lunch at the retreat, or packed lunch if you are out for the day. Choose from a selection of lean meats, fish, beans, grains and salads. Add a little homemade dip or dressing that is sure to tantalise the taste buds.

Dinner time

Sit down to a group dinner using recipes and ingredients from all around the globe. Mediterranean, Asian, South American, all tastes are catered for and we ensure you are fully rewarded after your busy day’s activities.

Non-alcoholic drinks

Whilst top quality, locally sourced wines are served with the evening meal, all non-alcoholic drinks are refreshing and thirst quenching. Choose from freshly made juice, herbal teas and infused water.

Things to do and places to see

THINGS TO DO

Natural pool

The natural pool is a real hidden gem, set privately amongst tall trees and grassland so you have the space to yourself. It’s clean and filtered, yet chlorine free and is surrounded by decking, which is a sun-trap in the summer, so it’s the perfect location for sunbathing and swimming.

Massages

Tranquillité provide a range of massage and therapy treatments to help enhance your relaxation during your stay. Each treatment is tailored to your individual needs. Feedback has been extremely positive and we fully recommend adding a treatment to your schedule.

Bikes and hikes

We provide each guest with a map of the local area, highlighting suggested routes that are great for exploring by foot or on bike. Cycle down country lanes surrounded by stunning views, with hardly a vehicle in sight. Alternatively, you can try one of our suggested walking routes that take you through stunning fields and woodlands.

Canoeing

Between the start of June and end of August canoeing is available in the nearby village. Take a quiet sleepy route down the river Dropt and enjoy the endless views of the region.

Daytime trips

The local regions of Duras and Dordogne have so much to offer so we plan small, and not too tiring, activities including trips to local Chateaus and a visit to the local market of Eymet.

Wine tasting and restaurant meal

On the final day of your Tranquillité retreat, we visit the local town of Eymet to try out the local food and drink. The evening starts with a wine tasting experience. Local wine expert, Mitch provides a range of local bottles, most of which are organic or biodynamic. Her passion and knowledge for wine and the local region, make the wine tasting a memorable experience (she isn’t shy with her measures either).

After this, we visit one of the local restaurants situated around the picturesque square in the centre of town.
