The retreat run by David and Michele Lambert is - for me - one of the very best places to write. The setting is lovely, the hospitality fantastic but more than this: there is a great sense of both peace and productivity.
"A fabulous retreat venue with plenty of spaces for relaxing in the sun, and idyllic Périgord countryside. The spacious meditation/yoga area provides a quiet nature-embedded space for practice. The hosts were wonderful at integrating the group and taking part in enriching exchanges. I'm excited to come back for a Yoga retreat in July 2018!"
"Le Verger was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone studying AS or A2 level French no matter what grade you are hoping to get. It helped me become so much more confident in my speaking, especially constructing a debate and discussion. David and Michèle are excellent teachers, always very encouraging, but also making sure you challenge yourself to improve."
