My first ever yoga retreat at Chateau de Bardouly was nothing short of amazing! With yoga classes twice daily in an idyllic setting and lingering over delicious, fresh, French meals with my fellow yogis, I had the trip of a lifetime in the French countryside. There was so much to do. I fondly recall scenic walks near the property, lounging by the pool with friends, riding horses, canoeing down the Dordogne and taking in the sights, sounds and tastes of the local farmer's markets. And, there was a day or two that I just stayed in at the chateau to take in the beauty and tranquility of the place. I felt that my week long experience at Chateau Bardouly was a uniquely French one, far away from the madness of my own city. And, as a foodie, I must mention that I've never eaten so well in my life. The beautifully appointed and curated rooms at this sprawling residence just lend themselves to the charm of the property and the warmth and hospitality of the chateau's owners permeates the place. I certainly hope to return to Chateau de Bardouly for another lovely stay!
