I have stayed at this lovely retreat twice now and am currently planning another trip. It’s so peaceful and calming with nothing to disturb your tranquility at all. The pool is a great way of exercising and also relaxing at the same time. The grounds are lovely and I enjoyed everything about my stay, going home feeling relaxed and refreshed for whatever life brings. Linda is calm and welcoming and made my stay very special with a comfy bed and lovely home cooked meals. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for such a break whether it be long or short.

I was recently working locally to Linda’s Turners retreat. I contacted Linda via her website http://www.franceretreat.com, to enquire if I could make a booking to stay for a few days as I need to be somewhere with a relaxed atmosphere, strictly no stress & no dramas please!

From the time I contacted her from the time I left it was an absolute pleasure. The accommodation was perfect, the surroundings are stunning, the view from the garden just beautiful & breakfast to die for (oh boy can I eat & she feed me well). This is a little gem tucked away, it’s a secret that should not be kept! Linda & Paul made me feel at home the few days that I stayed. I had one problem through! ….. I did not want to leave….you really needed to stay here!

I have been through a very traumatic time with my family which affected my mental state ability to function. Linda helped me greatly through this time by giving me a clear understanding of the situation. Her knowledgeable, caring and patient manner helped me to start to start to function again, live well and see a way forward.
Even just for time out, a visit to Linda’s beautiful large country house, which overlooks wooded valleys and farmland, is a very easy going and relaxing experience. I certainly recommend.
