Raw food detox and yoga retreat in The Sunday Times

absolute sanctuary detoxIt’s not the done thing to boast but sometimes you just can’t help yourself. We made it into the Sunday Times 100 best holidays again this year – aren’t we chuffed to bits.

Here’s what they say…

Raw health in France

Your body is a temple; your aura is bright; your chakras are aligned. You have just been on a combined yoga and raw-food break in the south of France, and are possibly the healthiest person on the planet. It’s five days of learning to do clever things with uncooked ingredients — there’s more to it than you’d think, and you can expect Japanese, Italian, Mexican and Indian flavours — followed by asanas and pranayama, meditation, aromatherapy and massage, all in an 18th-century mansion or a 16th-century Basque farmhouse near Biarritz. NotInTheGuideBooks.com (0845 625 0445) has the trip from £636, including meals, but not flights. Head to Biarritz with Ryanair (0871 246 0000, ryanair.com) or easyJet (0843 104 5000, easyjet.com).

If, after that, you need some meat, the same company does a nose-to-tail eating break on which you will dismember a pig. Just a thought.
