If you’re looking to refresh and refocus after summer, head to St Tropez where there are two high-demand Pilates and wine tasting weekends scheduled at a stunning villa.
The villa is in L’Escalet, which is about 20 minutes from St Tropez centre and in the gorgeous national park area of Ramatuelle – also just 10 minutes from the infamous Pampelonne beach.
The dates are:
- Friday 9th October – Monday 12th (3 nights) and
- Friday 16th – Monday 19th October (3 nights).
Each weekend will include two Pilates classes a day (either in the villa or on the beach) taught by Ruth Tongue (www.ruthtongue.com), a wine tasting and bicycle/walking tour, hike and picnic and optional other activities (paddle boarding, kayaking, beauty treatments, massage, cookery).
All meals will be healthy and nutritious, yet by no means a detox. When in the south of France who doesn’t want to enjoy a little bread, cheese and wine?! (Hence why it’s called a holiday not a retreat!). If you are keen to have a healthier weekend though there will always be lighter options available and special diets can be catered for.
The villa sleeps 10 (5 double bedrooms). Prices are £495 per person (based on sharing a double room) or £565 for a double room with single supplement.
This includes brunch each day, picnic on two days and three dinners. Flights and transfers not included.
There are just two rooms left for the first weekend, and the second weekend is also booking up quickly so if you’d like any more info contact Ruth as soon as you can via email firstname.lastname@example.org
