There are times when we just need to stop, switch off and have a deep, deep rest. It may be you’re facing burnout or you’ve suffered a trauma. You may have lost someone you love and be battling with grief, or you may have had a tough time at work, at home or in your relationship. Whatever your reason for a restorative break, the retreats in this section will care for you deeply away from the busyness of your everyday life and put you back together. Our restorative retreats stretch from the rolling countryside of southern England to the foothills of the Himalayas in India, from the cognac vines of south-west France to a leafy coastal resort in Sri Lanka, from high in the Ibizan hills to an atoll in the Maldives. Whether you stay in a 200-year-old house, a holistic spa or an elegantly converted barn, you’ll be in trustworthy hands and the care and pampering you receive will be second to none. Specific programmes have been tailored to help you through this period. Choose treatments that will calm your mind and encourage you to listen to the voice within, or opt for a healing programme to build you back up. Rest, chill, cosy up and just be.
