Yoga Pool.jpg

We would like to welcome you to our very relaxing yoga retreat centre at Gites de Source, located in a beautiful region in the South West of France.

This retreat will be facilitated by husband and wife team Claude and Linda.

All the yoga classes will be instructed by Linda who is a 500+hour yoga alliance certified instructor who has been practising yoga for almost 30 years and teaching regular classes since 2017 at Primal Health Yoga

The yoga classes on this retreat will be a varied mix of Vinyasa flow, Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra.

The classes will be offered at all levels with adjustments suitable for all needs. Beginners are most welcome and will be guided and supported throughout.

This retreat will be small, with a maximum of 8 participants. Come on your own or come with a friend or family member. We have private double rooms for single or double occupancy with private ensuites as well as twin rooms suitable for 2 sharing.

Although we are located in the peaceful rolling hills of Charente Maritime, among vines and sunflowers, we are only one hour from the beautiful city of Bordeaux and one hour from the Atlantic coast. 

Pick up is available from Bordeaux airport (extra cost) which is just an hour's drive from the centre.

You will be the guests of Claude and Linda for all your meals but also have full cooking facilities available in your cottage.

Meals are vegetarian-based and where possible we will use our own vegetables, fruits and other local produce from the region.

Linda is a fully qualified and experienced nutritional therapist and will do her best to support your nutritional needs.

For this particular retreat, our yoga classes will take place in the garden room and/or around the pool.

The garden room is an indoor/outdoor space with a panoramic view of the rolling hills below.

As we are located in the South West of France you can expect warm, sunny weather without the extreme temperatures that come in the height of summer. Average temperatures are usually around 25 degrees Celsius throughout May + June. The pool will be open every day for your enjoyment and relaxation.

Looking forward to welcoming you to our haven of peace and sharing yoga practices.

A très bientôt!

Testimonials From Previous Retreats

"From the moment of booking Linda's interaction and encouragement began. Every detail taken care of. The location is beautiful the accommodation very comfortable and the whole environment lends itself to relaxation. Linda s guidance instruction and yoga classes were very enjoyable. Each session building on the previous one and including wonderful combinations of movement which helped me to reconnect with my body and deeply re energize. Yin yoga vinyasa and yoga Nidra all a part of this retreat. The food was an excellent aid to this. Relaxed mealtimes with delicious local and much home grown, fresh produce. Interesting recipes and tasty delights at each meal. Claude and Linda make an amazing team caring for all the needs of our group and not only providing yoga food and amazing space, but the addition of trips to beautiful places and shared time exploring local culture. The pool was also a fantastic addition and time to relax and unwind was Weaved into each day. I would highly recommend this yoga retreat and am sure I will return for more in the future."

"Set in a quiet and open countryside, Gîtes de Source boasts a lovely swimming pool and comfy little cottages which exude a wonderful sense of coziness and charm, the orchard and vegetable garden are as generous as the owners and I could feast on grapes, figs and peaches - I came as a complete beginner, Linda made it all seem easy for me - I really enjoyed the daily courses in the open air studio with a beautiful unrestricted view of peaceful fields and vineyards - After I registered Linda had sent me a short form asking for a few details and the question “What would you most like to get out of this retreat?” - I was at a loss on what to answer as I was not expecting anything specific, I said I just wanted to discover yoga and enjoy a relaxed and pleasant week Well, I got it all and a lot more - I cannot comment on Linda’s teaching as I know far too little about yoga, all I can say is that it worked beautifully for me - Linda and Claude put a lot of thoughts and efforts in making each one feel at home, from the welcoming smiles upon arrival to the warm hugs on departure they succeeded in giving me a most welcome lull in time, with no worries whatsoever, all was smooth and easy ! They have wonderful projects to make an indoor/outdoor Yoga Studio and I can’t wait to see it happen to treat myself with a new Yoga Retreat in Gîtes de Source ! This short holiday has been a success for me, thanks to Linda, thanks to Claude and thanks to the other amiable participating ladies".
