Book early to avoid disappointment and for cheaper plane fares – courses may fill up months in advance.
A maximum of 18 participants on each course ensures a nurturing environment. Around 15/20 hours of structured group activities leaves plenty of time to laze around by the pool or explore on your own.
A number of excursions are on offer each week. There are various options depending upon the time of the year, the weather and the needs of the group:
• a morning at our traditional local market in St Antonin.
• a day trip visiting one of the nearby mediaeval villages: walk, picnic, swim in the River Aveyron.
• an optional 3 hour canoeing trip through the river’s spectacular limestone gorges where you may see herons and kingfishers (€18 per person). Those not canoeing will be offered an alternative excursion visiting another mediaeval village, going on a walk followed by a picnic by the river.
• an evening trip to listen to or dance to a local band.*
Courses take place either in a lovingly restored former barn with a high ceiling and exposed beams or in our outdoor yoga studio.
Do you have a friend or partner who would like to come to La Roane but not do the course? There is a £85 reduction for non-participating guests. Always plenty to do and see so they won’t get bored.
“This was my first retreat and I think the bar has been set very high. I would highly recommend La Roane to all I know. Nigel and Anna are such wonderful souls. Everything about this week has been marvelous. With such organisation we haven’t had to think about a thing except listening out for the bell.” Sheryll (group participant)
“Everything was amazing – venue, food, care, excursions etc. I can’t explain adequately how much it has lifted me and the memory will stay with me for ever.” Adele (group participant)
