Testimonials

The most relaxing and recuperative break so far, with the most delicious vegetarian home-cooked food. I loved the ethos at this place, beautiful surroundings and caring, welcoming owners. Can’t wait til next year!
A wonderful holiday in every way, from the yoga teaching by Claire to the venue at Casa D’Ouro with its amazing food and all the little touches which made it a very special experience.
What a fabulous holiday! I was able to stretch my body, relax my mind and expand my circle of friends with a yoga holiday with Claire at Bellevue where I enjoyed sumptuous food, local wines and all the beauty of this fabulous countryside
I was not particularly interested in doing anything other than meditation, yoga, swimming and eating! It was perfect!
