Live life to the full, cherishing each moment and renewing your passion for life. 

This week is all about enjoying yourself whilst discovering the gorgeous surroundings. We will explore the local area visiting mediaeval villages and the fabled city of Cahors with its famous medieval bridge and it’s impressive cathedral. There will be a series of organised walks exploring the stunning countryside plus a chance to canoe down the River Aveyron.

There will be a vegetarian cookery class with our cook Enzo. We will also spend time doing laughter exercises, chi kung and other meditative practices as well as singing your heart out and dancing your socks off! All activities are optional and all are welcome.
Nigel Shamash, the owner of La Roane, has lived here these past 24 years and has been running yoga and activity holidays here since 1999.
He founded Cortijo Romero (see www.cortijo-romero.co.uk ) in 1986 and was its resident director for 5 years before moving to France.

He has had a varied career as a banker in South America, Senior Lecturer in Business Studies at Portsmouth University and a yoga teacher and masseur in Australia. He has spent a lot of time visiting yoga ashrams in India and alternative communities in California.

He has a profound interest in all aspects of the spiritual path with a particular interest in yoga and music. He sings and plays with a local band. He is fun-loving with a special blend of humour and sensitivity – an ideal host and group leader.


Guests are housed in 3 beautiful buildings set around a large oval-shaped pool in a lovely sunny spot in the centre of the garden. It is an ecological fresh water pool cleaned without the use of chlorine or salt. Accommodation is in comfortably furnished single and double rooms – indoor towels provided. Plenty of bathrooms for everyone. There is also a luxury yurt with an outdoor hot shower and compost toilet. It’s at the entrance of the woods so perfect for star gazing and hearing the the night owls. Just ask for it when booking, there is no extra charge.
