If food is an important element in the enjoyment of your holiday then we promise you won't be disappointed when you stay with us!

We're passionate about food - planning, shopping, growing, cooking and especially eating it!

We try to source all our ingredients locally, from markets, farms and merchants, as well as our own garden and hens, so that we can offer you the real taste of the ‘terroir’ and French regional cuisine at its seasonal best.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My last retreat at SMC was so inspiring and so relaxing. But i'd love to have more time there to spend at the Stupa, visit the Kami shrine, and generally interact with the beautiful enlightened society happening on that entire land. Brett

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
