Bespoke Retreat in Bulgaria

From £1150 pp

What You'll Do

During this 7 day retreat you will receive all the support you need to make meaningful, lifelong changes. Learn how to lose unwanted weight in a healthy, sustainable way.

The Bespoke Retreat programme starts with a Nutrient Core DNA test, that essentially gives you state of the art insight into how your body responds to the foods you eat including gluten, lactose, caffeine, and microbiome diversity. Your personal nutrient core report includes vitamin needs and further information about your metabolism. It’s yours to keep as a valuable reference guide for life. It will help remove the guesswork when deciding what foods and lifestyle factors best support your body and wellness goals.

During your stay we will develop a plan in line with your DNA Nutrient Core Report and other lifestyle factors and start making positive steps to improve your metabolic health.

During our interactive workshops and cookery demonstrations we will give you plenty of useful ideas and recipes. This will include a shopping list to return home, so you’re armed with what you need to continue your health journey going forward.

This small & friendly group holiday for up to 7 offers a personal service, tailored around you and your needs.

Operating dates: 3rd – 9th June, 1st – 7th July, 12th – 18th August and 23rd – 29th September

Clients need to book their Nutrient Core DNA Test a minimum of 5 weeks before attending the Retreat.

Location Information

The retreat is located in a traditional village called Pungovtsi, nestled in the northern slopes of the Central Stara Planina Balkan mountain range. Nearby is the picturesque historical town of Tryavna, with its cobbled streets and famous for its typical revival architecture.

Here you will be transported back in time, to a quieter and simpler version of life. An area renowned for its clean air, pine forests and far-reaching views. Home to less than 20 residents, makes this ‘hidden gem’ of a village the perfect place to retreat.
