About us

On this painting holiday we paint en plein air in the stunning Dordogne region of South-West France.  We take daily excursions to breathtaking locations such as the medieval town of Sarlat,   the famous La Roque-Gageac, Cahors and many more. Draw and paint the many architectural subject in the medieval towns and villages, the lush riversides of the Lot and Dordogne Rivers and the bustling atmosphere of markets.  Learn to paint in watercolours or just come along for the company of fellow artists. Help from your tutor will be available at all times.  All levels welcome!  

We are staying at the Perigord Retreats where you can enjoy the indoor/outdoor swimming pool, excellent views all around and a superior service by our lovely hosts Angela and Adrian.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda
 

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.
