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.

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.
