And you will also enjoy Jonny´s plant-based & vegetarian food!
Note that this is NOT specifically for people living with MS. If you’d like to spend a week exploring how to manage specific health issues and symptoms (such as balance issue, spasticity, fatigue, etc), please consider joining a retreat in Portugal instead.


What’s really brilliant is that Veronique gives a whole range of potential ways to engage with the pose, whatever level you are at. She is hugely encouraging. (Cath R.)

The location

La Perdrix  is a gated  private  property on the edge of the village of St Martin de Riberac in the beautiful Dordogne area of south west France.  Originally built as  a 13th Century Monastery, the property has undergone many transformations over the centuries but has maintained much of it’s original features and historic charm.

Ingrid and Jonny have trawled the local brocantes and markets to find the furniture and art that best compliment the style and character of the property. The garden is rambling. It’s an ideal place to swing in a hammock listening to the birdsong, or watch the night sky from the swimming pool. La  Perdrix  isn’t grand , it’s a little ramshackle but it’s rustic and true.

Getting There
The nearest airport is Bergerac airport which is a 45 min drive from the property this airport uses Ryanair  which flies from Bristol, London, Liverpool, East Midlands and Flybe carriers and has good connections throughout Europe, it is a small airport and therefore pleasant and speedy to travel through.
Bordeaux airport is a 1 hour and 20 minute drive and also connects with European central hubs with both budget and mainline carriers.
There is also a train station at Mussidan, which is about 20 minutes from La Perdrix.
We can organise transfer from and to the airport (price not included above).
