About Praana Wellness

It is our wish is for people to find what it is they need at Praana Wellness, whether it is peace and quiet, fun and laughter, support and therapy.

A place dedicated to relaxation.

Set in the majestic French Cognac countryside of the Charente Maritime, our retreat centre offers you a truly tranquil respite from everyday living: fabulous food, massage, meditation and yoga classes for everyone.

Your wellbeing is our business and one of our unique selling points here at Chez Vallée is that this peaceful and picturesque Charentaise retreat centre is also our home.

Our aim is for you to experience a feeling of total comfort and ease as you enjoy the many delights of Chez Vallée and perhaps take the opportunity to explore the vineyards and the local area.

Amanda has amazing life experiences and travels since the 1980’s, living, studying and working in Africa and Asia, the Middle East and now France. These experiences have given her the confidence and knowledge to realise her dream and offer a place for retreat.
