After that we have a healthy brunch and then we have a talk on one of the main areas of health with a time for questions and discussion at the end of it. The plan is to give you some take away realistic changes that you can implement into your life at home.

After that you have free time to journal, sleep, go inside or just read. You can explore the grounds, swim in the pool or wander through the vines.

Your hosts

Jennifer & Rupert have been together for over 10 years and previously lived in the UK. They found La Rouxane by accident one day and fell instantly in love and spent several months working out how to buy her. Having achieved their initial goal, they set about working out how to move to her permanently whilst still maintaining their links to their families at home.. they now live at La Rouxane for the majority of the year but go back to the UK for the summer when they rent La Rouxane out so that others can enjoy all that she offers..

Jennifer is a health coach and has worked in the health arena for most of her life.. she is a qualified reflexologist, occupational therapist, meditation coach and has taken courses in cranio-sacral therapy, massage, shiatsu, ear candles, Indian head massage, essential oils, nutrition, craft therapy, counselling and cookery. She has done yoga for more than 20 years, meditated on and off for many years, reads health books, listens to health podcasts and loves to share her knowledge of all things health..

Her focus is on helping you determine how you can feel your best. She focuses on the 4 main areas of health (in her view) stress, sleep, movement and food. Some 1:1 time with her will help you to determine how you can tweak your existing lifestyle to really benefit from improved energy. Real change doesn't come from big changes, it comes from small changes made consistently and Jennifer will help you work out how you can incorporate these into your life.

Rupert, your chef, has been cooking his whole life and loves to experiment with dishes and flavours from the local area and most especially our garden. He trained with Keith Floyd and in Switzerland before deciding that he liked people too much to work in a kitchen and not meet the people who eat his food. Having had a long career in the property industry, he has finally found his niche and loves cooking for small groups. He uses La Rouxane's olive oil, olives, grapes, wine, vinegar, fruits and herbs as the basis for many of his dishes.
