2nd – 4th July 2023


2 nights / All Inclusive / Private Château / Vineyards / Yoga / Pilates / Wine


This is no ordinary wellness retreat!

For me a nourishing, rejuvenating weekend is a weekend that fills your cup, a weekend filled with doing things that make you happy!

Movement, fresh air, in beautiful venues with delicious food, wine (which always tastes its best when consumed where it’s born) all with like-minded people that you may well end up calling friends for life – now this is a dream weekend.

Come and join us for an amazing few days of Wellness & Wine in the vines, in the sunshine, in the beautiful Bordeaux region of France! After the incredibly successful summer of one day events in some beautiful vineyards in the UK we are expanding into a whole weekend AND into the most incredible private chateau in the best wine region in the world (*IMO) – Bordeaux, France.

I have been looking for the perfect venue for this event for a while and I’ve finally found it. With a wonderful selection of fully renovated (keeping their original beauty) ensuite bedrooms in this truly stunning chateau in the heart of Bordeaux that has its very own vineyard and produces a fabulous selection of wines. This could not be a more perfect location to hold our first abroad Wellness & Wine.

We have the whole chateau, just for us, inside and out. We may do our classes outside in the lush green grounds and if we choose to be inside, we will be using the Grand Salon! Could this get any better?

Well yes it can…

How about 3 days of Pilates, yoga, walks, bike rides, incredible food and two fun, informative wine tasting sessions delivered by the lovely chateau and vineyard owner, Estelle Borgeat.

My name is Lucy and I will be hosting the whole weekend and teaching the majority of the classes. I have been a fitness instructor for many years and a lover of wine since I can remember so I decided to do the level 2 WSET in wine which led to holding a variety of Wellness and Wine events over the summer. The feedback from these has been incredible, better than I could have ever dreamed of so I knew this was something I wanted to expand further. It combines my love of travel and wine with making the world a happier, healthier place through fitness, wellness and wonderful people. This is going to be a fabulously nourishing weekend of goodness for the soul!

The photos of the venue speak for themselves but if you like a little history…This beautiful Neo-Gothic castle built in 1856, includes a vast body of building flanked by an octagonal tower with machicolations and a small turret. Multiple gargoyles and chimeras decorate the building and give the château a magical feel. There is also a chapel decorated with beautiful paintings and stained glass windows. As for the vineyard, it was classified in first cru bourgeois (very good in wine terms) and in second bourgeois for the wines of palus. The Borgeats have restored the 19th century atmosphere to the château in order to make visitors travel both in its prestigious past and in the discovery of the most renowned wines in the world.
