Les Passeroses is the old French word for the hollyhocks which spring up around the walls of the property in summer. The stone-built farmhouse is set in the glorious rolling countryside of south-west France and has been tastefully transformed into what has been described by the Guardian as one of the "Top Ten Best Yoga Retreats in the world".
You will be drawn on arrival to the large oval pool, surrounded by wooden decking, lawns and a tiled terrace, Here you can enjoy the heat of the sun on one of the numerous sun loungers, or curl up in the shade on a huge outdoor sofa with a book. Or, just relax under the gazebo on a comfy recliner and take in the panoramic views of the French countryside. Steps lead you in to the large informal gardens, which are an ongoing project and Adrian's personal passion.
Most guests travel to Les Passeroses via train as it is the least stressful and most relaxing way to start your holiday. The whole trip will usually take six hours. If you choose to travel by air, there are four airports in the area that are each about an hour away from Les Passeroses: Bordeaux, Bergerac, Limoges, and Poitiers.
