I cannot imagine a better yoga retreat, or for that matter a better WEEK than the one we just had at Bardouly. Surrounded by vineyards and wheat fields, the house has the bones of a very old estate but has been renovated into a comfortable, welcoming home. The bedrooms and living areas are spacious and luxurious. The food was unbelievable. Every meal was a well thought out, carefully prepared feast of local French cuisine, never heavy, always fresh and tasty. And the wine was amazing. Lisa and Jean Claude shared not only their home, but their wealth of knowledge of the area and their estate. When we went canoeing on the Dordogne, it was arranged through one of their acquaintances just like the bicycle tour in Bergerac and the horseback riding and the wine tasting. We received first hand, insightful stories of this gorgeous area. I would go back in a minute.
