The hosts seem to forget that people come to have fun and relax and not to be repeatedly given orders or instructions. Yes we are at their house but life is stressful enough and we did not feel at ease there. Sorry guys, you have a nice place but you are too obsessive....

Spent a weekend here in November at a Tantric Massage workshop and was totally impressed by the whole setup. From the warm welcome from Louis,to the moment I left,I could not have felt more at ease. It is true,that the sleeping arrangements are not what I am used to,but hey as Louis says,"you are all going to massage each other,so... More

I attended the 2013 yoganu yoga retreat and had a wonderful time. The villa itself is a charming property with several social communal areas and plenty of room to find space and solitude in the beautiful garden, if you choose. In particular, hours of fun can be had in the swimming pool, particularly late at night after the final yoga... More

Gay hotels are supposed to be safe haven where you can relax. Unfortunately I cannot say I could relax in the Vieux Donjon. I was asked to join in for a naked picture in the yoga hall for the hotel website (that is for making free publicity which I turned down) and I decided not to go for very personal... More

The place is very conveniently place one hour from Paris and it is beautifully located although you will need to rely on Fred/ Luis to come and pick you up at the train station if you don´t have a car as it is not near it. I went on a naturist gay yoga retreat and quite frankly I would not... More

From the moment we got there it wasn't good. They didn't have rooms assigned. I didn't have a bed that fit me and I had to share the same bed with another person the same size as me, although we became good friends :) Double occupancy here means 1 bed. The first couple of meals left something to be desired.... More

Wonderfull place. Huge work done to built and maintain a wonderfull garden. The house is huge and nice. But the host (Luis) will ask you to take your shoes off any time you enter the house. He will be after you checking everything at all times. No relax time, allways talking. Rooms are ok in surface but very "lady" decorated.... More

Outstanding in everyway! Luis has worked wonders with this place from a excellent private courtyard to an enclosed pool and heated to just the right temperature. I stayed for 2 nights if only it could have been longer, i was staying on my own so I lazy and had lunch and dinner here and everything was homemade and cooked fresh.... More
