    We stayed 5 days, 4 nights at Revel, France in the great company of Lucas and Tania. It was our first trip without our 3 children. We were also celebrating my husband's 40th birthday. It was a much needed holiday in light of my husband's grueling work schedule and his doctoral studies, among keeping up with the demands of three young children. We were looking to be in a peaceful environment, explore yoga and meditation and eat clean. Tania spoilt us with a 1.5 hour massage individually, which also helped us to release any toxins coming into our holiday trip. My husband has not tried yoga and resisted taking any classes. However, my Husband now understands how yoga can help his body's needs. He has embraced yoga and is keen to take it up in his lifestyle. I have enjoyed taking many classes and styles of yoga and enjoyed the classes as well. What was profound for both my husband and I was learning that yoga helps one reach a state of meditation. I found performing the yoga poses allowed me to go deeper into meditation and was a good segway into our meditation class. In respect of both yoga and meditation, Tania is not judgmental and flexible in her teaching style and allowed us individually to achieve what we preferred while also challenging us. We enjoyed wonderful and organic vegetarian meals, despite being carnivores. I walked away with a number of recipes, that made me very happy. Lucas also led some meditation sessions; challenged and coached us in ways to think about our couple in light of our hectic lifestyle. He is very natural and is clearly a gift he has to connect and understand people and their needs. We thank them both for their commitment and time. We laughed a lot and enjoyed each other's company. It was a very safe, light, and meaningful week in which we hope has a lasting effect on our lifestyle. We also enjoyed some downtime. I got a chance to read a book on the hammock while taking in gorgeous views. We also enjoyed a long walk around the neighborhood and all the greenery. We also had a nice trip into town and to the lake. Overall, Tania and Lucas exceeded our expectations. I am hopeful we can make this an annual trip.

    The five-day transformational retreat gave me so much! Being at a crossroad in my life, Lucas and Tania helped me tremendously to find the right direction. They helped me open my eyes and confront myself with a few personal strategies. I loved this retreat so much because you feel how much Lucas and Tania enjoy helping people and sharing their knowledge. I know that my life will change now for the better using the simple tools, meditation techniques, and yoga postures which I learned. I very much recommend this retreat to anyone who is look for a change in their life!

    Lotus Village is a place of calm, love, and acceptance. Tania and Lucas are extremely welcoming and I felt at home immediately. Their blend of expertise, energy, and sense of humor meant that I was comfortable trying a wide variety of practices and new ways of thinking, even though this was my first retreat! The massage on the first night was invaluable as far as relaxing me into the whole retreat experience. I enjoyed the variety of activities and trying new things such as Sufi meditation and energy healing. I enjoyed opening my mind in a place without judgment or expectations on me. Most of all, I enjoyed being able to be myself.

    My stay at Lotus Village was very healing. I enjoyed the range of treatments and services as well as the delicious vegetarian meals. The couple running the retreat are kind and attentive. The atmosphere is relaxed and inspiring movies are played in the evening -- a much needed get away. I left a better person. Thank you, Tania and Lucas!

  • Anne Scotland

    I had one of the best experiences of my life with Tania and Lucas at their retreat in France. I stayed for 3 days on a transformational retreat but wished I had booked for longer! The retreat consisted of yoga, massage, energy healing and life coaching as well as amazing food and company. The best part was laughing so much, it was the best medicine. A life changing experience!

    I had a super relaxing time at the retreat. The food was amazing, and the retreat is in such a fantastic setting. Tania and Lucas have such loving positive energies, and I came away with some new life skills, feeling fully refreshed and energized. The visit to the local market was a bonus, as well as the late night rain-dance with thunderstorms on cue!

    What can I say when "truly amazing" doesn't even seem to fit the experience I have had. I was very nervous about coming and never had been away on my own before. I knew I needed to relax and some help but I didn't know how. Tania and Lucas are both truly amazing people and made me feel at ease from the moment they met me at the airport. They welcomed me into their home and put me at ease giving me a safe environment and the tools to explore and find myself. Most important they taught me how to love myself, be at peace and just have fun and be happy. I have not laughed so long and so hard for quite some time! I consider my expectations well and truly surpassed. I can thoroughly recommend Lotus Village for anyone who needs to get away and have some rest and relaxation or for someone who is looking for help and guidance on how to be happy. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have changed my life for the better.

    This retreat has been life-changing for me. It came at a point of cross-roads in my life and I could not have made a better decision. It has inspired me to pursue my dreams; it has challenged me to take the journey within even deeper; it has has allowed me to meet "family" away from home, and it has rejuvenated my soul. I am filled with so much happiness and peace and my heart if over-flowing with gratitude for Tania and Lucas.

  • John Netherlands

    Lotus Village website

    Perfect location with a very good atmosphere. It's a great environment to have a further introduction to mediation and yoga. It was a great experience for me as a person. I will definitely continue the things I learned in my life at home. Also, as a professional in psychosomatic medicine, I got inspiration from these days. Tania and Lucas made me feel welcome and at home, resulting in three relaxed days and a full "bag" of new things I can take home.

  • Sylvie Netherlands

    Lotus Village website

    It was a very informative and wonderful retreat. Tania and Lucas really made me feel at home. You can be yourself around them. The practices of meditation, yoga, and inner-child work were really wonderful. It helped me to be in "the now." In the meditation, I felt "in the flow," which was a very nice feeling. The house and the yoga space were very nice and peaceful with candles and singing bowls. There is a lot of space around the house so you can have space on your own. I really recommend this place if you are looking for a relaxed weekend and want to learn to be relaxed as well.

  • Selina Hong Kong

    Lotus Village website

    I stayed five days with Tania and Lucas for a transformational retreat. A simple holiday with yoga and meditation experience turned out to be an amazing journey of self-discovery, development, and spiritual renewal. It totally exceeded my expectation, and I felt so lucky and privileged to have chosen this retreat. Tania helped me to identify the real need of my body, my energy, and gave me tools that I can use and continue to practice in my post-retreat life. Lucas guided me though some of the essential issues I have in my life and showed me the possibilities and different ways to deal with them. Tania and Lucas made themselves available and mentally present for me when I needed their advice or to express myself. I felt myself reconnected to my body, mind and soul. Thank you Tania and Lucas.

  • Heidi Germany

    Lotus Village website

    The days I spent here were very relaxing and soothing. A chance to set back the clock, reconnect, remind myself to focus on the present and quiet the "monkey mind." Tania and Lucas are wonderful and easy-going hosts who make you feel at home.

  • Angele France

    I received this retreat as a birthday gift and I really thank my mom for having this great ideal!

    I discovered here very beautiful people and new things. I needed guidance, and I received what I was needing. I spent a great time that brought me a lot.

  • Mandy Germany

    Lotus Village website

    Amazing experience with lots of insights and fully re-charged batteries! The holistic approach that considers body, mind, and spirit makes it very effective and the dedication and positive energy that is given by Tania and Lucas makes it very special. Lots of laughter, good conversation (and food!) and smiles, and lots of good vibrations to be taken home. Without knowing me, they got to the grounds of what I needed to be focusing on immediately - that was very impressive. I felt understood from the very first minute and all the way through.

  • Line Denmark

    I had an amazing five days at Lotus Village. It's like being in a little bubble far away from the buzz and stress of the city. Tania and Lucas are very loving and supportive. I loved all the new ways of meditation they taught me. The talks around the dinner table and the food were all very memorable. I will definitely recommend others to go.

  • Esther Netherlands

    These five days were not only a retreat, but also a treat for myself. The environment, the cozy house, and very personal care of Tania and Lucas created a very safe surrounding for relaxing, focusing, and working on myself. I especially liked the various activities which were very well-connected to each other. What makes this retreat so special is that it is absolutely not business-oriented. Tania and Lucas want to help you, they want to do good, and are very devoted to that every single moment even outside of their services. Lastly, they focus on your life after the retreat and give you tools to keep up the benefits and take something home with you.

  • Marit Netherlands

    Lotus Village website

    I never thought I would be able to take such big steps and have so many new meaningful insights about myself. It has been a very special experience that gave me the personal growth I needed. Staying at Lotus Village was warm, supportive, and relaxed. Lucas and Tania gave me the tools to move forward. I can recommend anyone to take this challenge.

  • Maset Israel

    Lotus Village website

    The five-day transformational retreat is an opportunity to dive into your deepest parts and encourages you to find your way, giving you tools and it helps you to bring everything to your daily life. It integrates body, soul, mind, and faith. Lucas and Tania are powerful, calm, and impressive holistic coaches. They adjust the program to your personal needs with a big belief in change. These were the most healing days of my life as I was able to concentrate on my inner self without worrying about anything else. Thank you so much for giving me the tools to help myself.

  • Simonne Australia

    My experience at Lotus Village was very pleasant. The food was healthy and delicious. The accommodation was comfortable. The pace was easy with activities well-balanced with free time. The guidance offered by Lucas and Tania was always gentle and encouraging but without pressure. I enjoyed all the activities as well as the lively conversations we enjoyed at the dining table.

  • Evelyn Unites States of America

    I just finished my seven-day retreat with Tania and Lucas at Lotus Village. I love the location because it is surrounded by beautiful farmland. Tania and Lucas prepared the daily schedule in a way you can do activities but also have plenty of time alone to read and relax. What I loved the most was the cooking as they cooked very delicious and healthy food. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to take a break from their busy life.

  • Kristin Germany

    I had a great and pleasant stay here at the beautiful Lotus Village. It gave me time to relax, to think and become more confident. Tania and Lucas are fantastic and caring hosts who made my stay so enjoyable.

  • Maria France

    Lotus Village website

    It has been years, or maybe a lifetime, that I haven't thought about myself. I was feeling lifeless and this was the moment I needed to do something. I met two amazing people who really care about our well-being and who gave me tools to start the journey back to the real me. I really liked all of our discussions, the positive interactions and positive energy. I particularly connected to the inner child work that helped me realize so many things about myself and my behavior. The energy healing with Tania was a very powerful experience and I'm leaving with a better understanding of my real value. Even if I have more work to do, now I have the tools that were given to me in during this time. Five days was too short! I will miss you!

  • Anna Netherlands

    Lotus Village website

    What makes this retreat so powerful is the combination of yoga, meditation, life coaching energy healing, massage inspirational movies, healthy food, and good company. Lucas and Tania have a passion for helping you see what you need and encourage you to pick what fits you. They also make sure that you have a plan for after your retreat when you're back in the "real world" so the good work continues. For me, the pieces of the puzzle fell into place and I'm really grateful. Thank you for that!

  • Celine France

    Lotus Village website

    I searched for a calm place to rejuvenate for a few days in the sun, however, my retreat with Tania and Lucas brought me so much more than this. My mind, body, and spirit were all rejuvenated. I appreciated the calm environment, the wonderful smoothies that Tania made with fresh fruits and vegetables. Thank you.

  • Liliane France

    Lotus Village website

    I came here to reconnect with myself and I rediscovered myself which I had forgotten. Thanks to you both. We can lose ourselves, but with beautiful people like you, we can find our way back. I really liked the atmosphere, the schedule, library, yoga, coaching, and the energy healing. I loved all our discussions and I felt good and at ease. I enjoyed the free time where I could reconnect with myself, the peacefulness and the meals with all the conversations. I came with a lot of doubts and after a few days I reconnected with myself and my body and I'm leaving with a lot of goals, hope, joy, and positive thoughts.

  • Norman United Kingdom

    Lotus Village website

    I arrived here from a stressful life back home and, within hours, I had left all that behind and was able to focus on myself, learning how to cope and change things if necessary. I leave feeling more serene than I have been since taking adult responsibilities and now am able to respect being me.

  • Cristin and Andrew Spain

    At this moment, we cannot foresee how this retreat will change our lives, but we can say that it has deeply touched our hearts. In the perfect setting in the south of France, and through the shared practices of yoga, coaching, meditation, detox, massage... with the loving and professional support from Tania and Lucas, we've developed a common understanding and we've been inspired for pursuing an authentic purpose in our lives. See you soon!

    I had a terrific time! It was a week of learning, introspection, and amazing relaxation. Tania and Lucas are genuine in their caring and interest in their guests. This is a great thing and I appreciate it. The environment is calm, the surrounding nature is beautiful, and it is just easy to relax and find your balance here. The food was delicious and healthy. The classes and instruction were paced nicely. The life coaching gave me some things to think about but more importantly, I'm leaving with concrete steps to see real change and growth in my life. Thank you.

    This three-day retreat, bought as a gift for a friend, has turned into a great gift to myself! It has been a lovely stay and experience with I strongly recommend to anyone looking for ways to make a change in their lives.

  • Valerie France

    Lotus Village website

    First of all, it was my first experience with a "spiritual retreat" and it won't be the last! I didn't know at all what to expect besides the yoga. I had the three-day Transformational retreat, which I highly recommend to all those who want and accept to go deeper into themselves. I really loved all the activities and this new approach of yoga. I really liked the energy healing which was very beneficial. I also liked sharing the meals with Tania and Lucas and the vegetarian cooking which was new for me.

  • Myrna Brazil

    Lotus Village website

    I decided to start my sabbatical with the Transformational retreat and it has surpassed my expectations. Tania and Lucas were able to put together a variety of elements that allowed me to relax, have deep insights, connect with my strength, create a road map to fulfill my goal and mission in life. Here, I found a magical combination: beautiful scenery, skillful and compassionate support, delicious, vegetarian food and everything was encompassed with love. You made me feel at home, the "home" which we all should have. The one that makes you feel protected, whole and connected to your true self.

  • Anke Netherlands

    Lotus Village website

    Since this was my first yoga retreat, I didn't have any expectations at all. But, from the first moment we got to Lotus Village, we did all these wonderful activities that helped me to get in touch with my inner self. We started with a massage on Friday evening, which made me totally relaxed from the beginning. The meditation, yoga, and energy healing made the retreat complete. Thank you so much for these wonderful three days!

  • Judith Netherlands

    I am not that good in writing testimonials but, I really loved my stay at Lotus Village. There is a lot of time and attention and I enjoyed the food, the discussions and there is no rush, judgment or obligations. Thank you.

  • Any Panama

    Lotus Village website

    I would personally define it as a life coaching week. The yoga helped me to improve my connection with my body, the meditation helped me learn that I can control my thoughts and how this can become an important tool in life. The contact with nature had a relaxing effect and set the tone for a transformational week that showed me the tools to practice and learn how to live in a more meaningful way. Tania and Lucas, behind the programmed schedule, I could really feel how you try to help people live better and this has an incalculable value. I could say thank you many times but, I'm sure that life will better reward you for an incredible mission in life.

  • Vincent France

    Lotus Village website

    Welcoming, warm, and great. The place is amazing with greenery and is very peaceful. The program was adapted to my needs with a good flow between activities that focused on the body and the mind. Everything is organic and tasty and I discovered the world of vegetarian cooking with great pleasure! Super experience!

  • Stella United Kingdom

    Lotus Village website

    Wow, what can I say... Tania and Lucas are so, so, very welcoming and excellent hosts. It was the perfect, refreshing break away. It gave me a greater understanding of meditation and the massage was amazing. The food was delicious and a real treat to be cooked for. Thank you both. I feel recharged and shall cherish your guidance and advice that will help give me more time for me!

  • Kim Luxembourg

    Lotus Village website

    Meeting Tania and Lucas was a powerful experience with two people who transformed themselves and share their knowledge with sincerity, generosity, goodwill and in a very humble way. In a bubble of protection and love, they helped me to connect with myself. I had the three elements that I was needing: spirituality, a deeper understanding of myself, and concrete tools. Between the coaching with Lucas, which was simple yet direct, and the sensibility of Tania, which helped me to integrate into my body, I'm leaving with a lighter solar plexus, an open heart and a suitcase full of concrete tools that are easy to practice and effective. My head is full of dreams and I have the real conviction that I can realize them all. I had a full transformation of my mind, body and spirit. I feel free and ready for new and beautiful adventures and I feel very grateful. Thank you.

  • Birdie France

    Lotus Village website

    I came here for a five-day detox retreat in order to escape the banalities of life that were pulling me down and pushing me in wrong directions, and I left with a quieter mind, a stronger body, a lifted spirit, and a happier heart!

  • Tayane Brazil

    Lotus Village website

    As my first retreat, I came expecting to expand my knowledge about yoga and meditation. But I got so much more, by actually expanding my knowledge about myself, and how my mind works. And most important, how to guide it towards happiness and for that I'll be never grateful.

    I enjoyed everything! The space is super cozy and relaxing. The schedule was perfectly balanced, and the food was amazing.

  • Malaika Tanzania

    Lotus Village website

    I came here needing time alone and to heal from the chaos of life, and it's exactly what I got. All was organized in an incredibly efficient manner and it all felt streamlined into place, exerting no pressure on me and allowing me time and opportunity to "just be".

  • Sandra Portugal

    Lotus Village website

    This was my first retreat and I went in with no expectations, but this retreat filled me with so much energy and good vibes that I never imagined was possible. I learned to make myself a priority in my life again and to treat myself with love. This retreat was life changing for me in how I feel about myself, how I see myself, and how I should live my life! I highly recommend it!

    What an amazing weekend we had here. From the moment we arrived, a feeling of peace and relaxation took over and our busy lives were soon a distant memory. Tania and Lucas took care of our every need, the food was delicious, and yoga in the garden before breakfast was amazing. A healing session with Tania totally blew me away, she is amazing. Next retreat, Bali, how excited am l!

    I enjoyed that it was small, personal, and flexible. It was good to know that the timetable wasn't rigid. There was also time to just be free, relax, and do your own thing if you wanted. I loved sitting at the table for meals and just talking and laughing with Tania and Lucas about anything. The food was divine and plentiful.
