Peace, Love & Cognac Retreat
2nd – 7th September 2017
Finally, for 2017’s calendar, an indulgent all inclusive 5nt/6 day retreat catering for the guest who wants to explore the rich culture of the beautiful and historical Cognac region, indulge in organic Cognac cuisine and equally relax and enjoy our ‘wellness’ activities and spa packages.
From the minute you arrive you relax, indulge and let us do the rest! Set in a beautiful French country manor house in the midst of the wonderful Cognac countryside, PraanaWellness offers you a unique ‘getaway’ concept tailored to your individual wishes.
Amanda Graham, the brainchild behind PraanaWellness, truly believes in a balanced life, and offers a refreshingly new approach to the concept of wellness retreats. As Amanda says ‘the choice is yours, relax by the roman pool, taste the delights of the Cognac region or zone out for an afternoon with some restorative yoga – then please do.’ This is tailor-made tranquility at its best.
With this mindset being at the heart of the PraanaWellness way, Amanda created the special ‘Peace, Love & Cognac’ retreat, for those who want an all-encompassing program for the body, mind and soul. There is plenty choice for everyone: with optional yoga classes, meditation and massage coupled with indulgent organic cuisine and cultural tours of the region.
Morning tea, brunch, afternoon tea and dinner provided with selection of local wines and local Cognac (lunch is not scheduled as there are activities three out of the four full days and dinner will be lighter on the days when lunch is scheduled at a restaurant). All the food served at PraanaWellness is local, seasonal and organic. We have a focus on health and well-being and cultural exploration, within a totally relaxed ambiance. Anyone with special dietary requirements can also be catered for.
