Sign-up for Detox in Luberon a Healthy Break in Provence
Enchanting image galleries of Provence flood the Internet. The region is like a pretty girl with an extensive wardrobe, endless photos of lavender fields, market produce, chilled rosé and turquoise swimming pools. The mild Mediterranean climate is a magnet for holiday goers seeking a chance to relax in the sun.
Need a Health Break?
Détox in Luberon is the perfect recipe for that healthy break in Provence. The concept took form in 2015 when Danielle Jouval, a massage therapist and passionate cook, and her business partner Thérésa Mazzolini, a certified nutritionist, decided to combine their talents to create Provencal experiences that are focused on well-being.
Located in the Vaucluse, their base of operations is a restored farm house – Domaine Saint-Jacques near the hamlet of Saint Saturnin lès Apt. The team at Détox in Luberon offers their clients a range of experiences, with an emphasis on health and relaxation. There are cooking classes, nutritional seminars, photo workshops, and opportunities for nature walks to discover local wildflowers and herbs. For those who can tear themselves away from the pool, sauna and Jacuzzi can take advantage of guided mountain bike tours and or nocturnal hikes by the light of the moon.
The founders are clear that the program(s) at Détox in Luberon are about pampering and taking a healthy break, not about fasting or mono-diets. There are a daily cooking workshop and many opportunities for exercise.
