BFB's Overview

Back in the 18th century, ‘La Croix de La Jugie’ was the manor farm for the hamlet of St Priest Ligoure in the Limousin and today it’s a gorgeous, creeper-covered country pile which is used for holiday lets and award winning retreat stays run by And Breathe Post Natal. These parent-friendly retreats offer a week-long chance to truly get away from it all, relax, unwind and refocus on yourself and your family. Packages include delicious but health conscious meals (breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner), drinks, several hours childcare, a personal trainer session, fitness classes (tailored to your birth experiences, weeks post-natal and general fitness levels), massages are more. Plus the setting couldn't be more idyllic, set in six acres of beautiful grounds with a heated swimming pool, games room and more.

The parent and toddler plus retreat is a twist on the companies classic retreat and perfect for parents with more than one little one. Parents with their hands full, arrive exhausted and leave feeling refreshed and recentred. It's a dream having someone take care of the details whilst your main goal is to 'breathe'. Each meal will be freshly prepared, each activity tailored to your needs/fitness levels, there's even on hand childcare (up to 4 hours or one evening babysitting included) so you can put your little ones in safe hands whilst you relax (perfect excuse for a massage!). All in all we can't think of a better treat for frazzled parents looking to unwind.

Retreat in details;

Fitness: On each trip one of the dedicated trainers will act as guests fitness guru for the week. They personalise the experience so each guests receive the best workout for them whether they are just getting back into fitness after children or need a kick start. Both parents get two exercise sessions per day as well as a personal training session during the week. And to make things even easier, the retreat ensures little ones are looked after during your fitness classes.

Food: As it is a retreat, the aim is to refresh and recharge your body. The food provided aims to be both delicious and health conscious. Of course, it's a holiday too so there's room for a glass of wine and a slice or three of French cheese! The breakfasts are plentiful and healthy, lunches light but satisfying and dinners delicious and nutritious. There's also afternoon snacks provided before the fitness classes. There's tea, coffee and filtered water on tap.

Feel: The retreat is designed to bring everyone together and feel completely at ease. It's specific to parents, so the group are bound to have shared stories and experiences which will help everyone come together. The evening suppers act as ready made dinner parties and guests can take advantage of the childcare provided (more may be possible on request at additional cost) to enjoy some rare adult only time. Toddlers are bound to appreciate the fellow playmate during the day and hopefully be worn out come evening so they settle for a good nights sleep. Of course the massages and mindfulness sessions, which are also included, help parents to switch into a more relaxed frame of mind.

Location Information

Manoir La Croix de La Jugie is in the Haute Vienne department of the Limousin region, which is the least populated part of France and an idyll of slow paced rural life – the perfect antidote to frenetic family living. There are beautiful lakes within 20 minutes drive, for paddling and picnics, fairytale chateaux and medieval towns to explore and the famously pretty and foodie Dordogne, only half an hour to the south.


La Jugie is just outside the village of St Priest Ligoure where fresh baguettes and croissants for brekkie can be collected from the small shop, Le Comptoir. Local towns all have weekly markets and supermarkets for stocking up on general provisions and local produce. There is also a wide choice of restaurants within a few minutes’ drive, from rustic farm-to-fork auberges to acclaimed gourmet destinations.


Just 15mins drive from the Manoir, the grounds of a 19th century chateau is home to the Parc Zoo du Reynou, with over 130 species of animals from primates and porcupines to giraffes, zebra’s, rhinos and big cats. Also only 15 minutes away is the impressive, hilltop Châlucet fortress which is one of the highlights of the scenic heritage drive, La Route Richard Coeur de Lion.


Limoges (30 mins) is the capital of the Haute Vienne and besides being the world famous capital of fine porcelain, it’s also a lovely city to explore, from the medieval Cité quarter, alongside the river to the partly pedestrianised Château quarter.


Nearest medical services (GP / A&E): St-Yrieix-la-Perche, 20km/20minutes


Getting here: Limoges Bellegarde is the neatest airport (35 mins) with flights from the UK with Ryanair or Flybe. Alternatively, Brive la Gaillarde is 60 mins, Angouleme and Bergerac 2 hrs and Bordeaux 3 hrs drive. The retreat can arrange transfers at additional cost but we highly recommended hiring a car.

Who owns this place?

Clio and her husband Bryn bought Manoir La Croix de La Jugie in 2013, turning it into a wonderful, welcoming retreat for large groups of friends and family. Clio is an interior designer and upcycler (cliothemuse.co.uk) and her touch can be seen in the beautiful, warm interiors of the Manoir. Bryn and Clio have a daughter of their own, so they have first-hand experience of holidaying with kids and have thought of pretty much everything you might need to enjoy your time in the gorgeous, undiscovered Limousin region.

What do they love about it?

Our part of France is the true France Profonde, relatively unknown by Brits and big on farming, it's a rolling green landscape in which to indulge on delicious local produce and create your own peace of holiday magic. The Manoir is set on the ridge of a valley with amazing views, and we love the big field for rambling, lawns for rolling, small field for ball games and orchard for apples and chestnuts! The swimming pool is perfect for hot summer days (plenty of them!)

What do the kids love about it?

There's so much to do here, both on the estate and in the surrounding areas. One of our firm favourites is the Zoo Reynou, only 15 minutes drive away. There's also kayaking, lake swimming and paintballing for older kids, as well as beautiful walks and bike rides (with our bikes or we can hire you more). The Manoir estate is perfect for outdoor games, den-building in the wooded areas, running races around the fields, football or touch rugby on the flat field and splashing about in the pool of course. We have plenty of bats and balls, croquet set and a ping pong table and billiard table. We've also board games and a few DVDs for those who want to stay indoors.
