Dates & Prices

Costs are very much based on your individual needs, particularly as regards treatment and rehabilitation, but average around £350 per night (not including flights and transfers).

Family rates:  We are keen to involve and enhance the health and fitness of children to give them the best start in life and so we offer discounts dependent on age of children and room requirements.  

Please contact us with your requirements.

Flights & Transfers

Flights and transfers are not included in the price of your retreat.

We recommend flight arrivals into Bordeaux-Merignac International Airport (about an hour away by road) with British Airways, Ryanair, Easyjet and Flybe flying direct from the UK.  You can also take the Eurostar from London to Bordeaux.
