Cool Recipes Weekend Getaway

Cool Recipes Weekend Getaway

  • Are you confused about what you should and shouldn’t eat?
  • Do you have disturbed sleep that leaves you feeling exhausted?
  • Is your weight going up or your body shape changing?
  • Are you noticing changes in the balance of your hormones?
  • Are you not sure what actions you can take to get back in control of your life?


If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, read on.

It is not easy to make transformational changes to your lifestyle, nutrition, and mind set while you are at home and in your usual routine.   It is so much easier when you are in relaxed surroundings being guided by experts.  You are leading a busy life and although you take time out occasionally to treat yourself, you know that there is more you could do to improve your wellbeing.

You want to feel confident about making practical changes that will have a positive and long-lasting effect so that you can get on with enjoying your life.  You want to understand what the options are so that you can be in control.

At this weekend getaway in the beautiful Aveyron region of France you will be part of a select group of like-minded women.  Jenny and I will help you to discover nutrition and proven mind/body techniques that will support you through this stage of your life and beyond.  This can be the best time and we want you to be excited about the changes you are experiencing.

Read what our previous guests said:

Superb facilitating from both Pat and Jenny. Obviously both ‘know their stuff’ well but I was gobsmacked at the way Jenny had such a vast deal of information on anything to do with food.  They put over knowledge in an interesting and lighthearted way. The venue was lovely and Nicky and John were such good hosts. Mrs MH, Norfolk 


Very friendly, relaxing and comfortable to be with. Very knowledgeable and informative without being condescending. Interesting and inspiring to listen to. Worked well as a team. I enjoyed the relaxed but purposeful atmosphere and meeting new people. Learning (and relearning) new ideas and concepts that could be used in real life! Mrs NC


I felt so lucky to be with you and Jenny at Bournazel – what a treat it was. Mrs KG, Bucks

What would improve the Retreat?  Make it longer!!! Mrs KH, Herts


It has been enlightening and interesting….It has given me a much bigger insight into the things that I can do and will do. Mrs HA, Cambs

Each of the gites has a well-equipped open plan kitchen, dining and sitting area.  The double and twin bedrooms are on the upper floor and are provided with crisp linen and towels. Free WIFI is accessible throughout Le Roc.
