Parents of Vanessa and generous supporters of this family project, Rosemary and Brian have lived and loved the rural lifestyle, starting in Australia, then England, now France.

Brian is a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and is dedicated to helping people recover from their personal difficulties and make the most of their lives. He hopes, along with his daughter, to create a space for healing and therapeutic retreats at La Closerie.

Courses and retreats

In a converted barn we have an amazing space for teaching. With our connections to Permaculture teachers, nature connection experts, yogis, craftsmen and women and renowned therapists we plan to offer a wide range of residential courses. We are also happy to host others who wish to use the space for work that encourages any form of healing, opening, artistry, connection, environmental or alternative education, dance or general positively affirming teachings!
