Keiko, New York
I had a good fortune of staying at the Bardouly for a week long yoga retreat in late May. Rooms (each different), yoga studio, dining and living area (indoor and outdoor) were all very enjoyable. We had morning and late afternoon yoga in newly finished studio. During the daytime, we went out for hikes around Bardouly, visiting local towns and markets, historical castles and gardens. Also, Lisa and JC arranged local wine tasting and a visit to Foie Gras making. Thus we were pretty busy every day! The food! Joining the yoga retreat, I did not expect the food to be so good (of course, this is France!). We had 3 course meals (starter, main and dessert) every day! They are simple but all tasted very good. And the wines! Everyone look forward to dinner time every evening! The only regret I have was that I should have spent more time on the ground of the Bardouly since it is simply beautiful and tranquil. I could spend all day by the beautiful pool side surrounded by greens and roses (they were in full bloom when I was there. Just gorgeous!). The last but not least, Lisa and JC were gracious hosts. They were always around to make sure everything OK. All in all, I highly recommend the Bardouly. I would love to go back to stay.
