Your Hosts 

Who are we staying with ? 

Our hosts at St Jeans are the wonderful Paul Bedford and his family who bought a ruin in the 1980s and have turned it into somewhere just amazing. Did you listen to our wonderful podcast with Paul? 

The Food (and wine)

All meals are prepared fresh by local chefs and served in one of the many group dining areas at our private venue. The foods are locally grown organic where possible.

"The whole setup is incredible. To have running trails passing literally through the garden an outdoor yoga deck for us to balance out the leisurely miles couldn’t be more perfect."
"France was an unforgettable experience. I would say to anyone thinking of joining you at this running retreat that they should do it. You learn so much and make good friends."
