GENETICS-BASED HEALTH RETREATS
Lavish private estate of Cap Bénat on the French Riviera
A luxury retreat with a full schedule of exercise and healthy meals tailor-made to your genetics. We rejects the notion of a one-size-fits-all fitness and nutrition and instead look at your key genes associated with diet, fitness and weight regulation so you have a bespoke health plan for life.
Who it’s best for: Anyone who likes some serious luxe with their fitness and who is fascinated by a scientific approach to diet and exercise.
Despite the high glamour of the location the retreat has a serious educational side, with health lectures and one-to-one consultations to help you change your lifestyle in line with your genetics.
Where you stay:
"La Radieuse is a spectacular, architect-designed, 9-bedroom villa carved into the side of the hill like a Bond Villain lair on the French Riverira close to Bormes-Les-Mimosas. The villa garden offers five acres of hillside, with a hot tub fashioned out of the rock and a lower terrace, where some of the exercise sessions take place."
"..lavish private estate of Cap Bénat on the French Riviera, a place so stylish that we couldn’t quite shake the feeling we’d landed on the set of a Tom Ford film." Sharon Walker, Queen of Retreats, 2016
The bedrooms and communal areas (including a cinema room for lectures) are layered over three floors and multiple terraces, with breathtaking views across the Med.
What you take home:
A detailed diet plan, tips on how best to exercise for my body type and a printed report going into details on your genes that relate to fitness and diet – which includes sensitivity levels to a number of nutrients and food types, from caffeine to carbohydrates and requirements in essential micronutrients such as vitamin D and B-vitamins.
