For the first time in July 2019, we will be running a Pilates and walking holiday in conjunction with Karen Jackman,  a certified Level 3 Body Control Pilates teacher who lives locally.

Your Pilates instructress – Karen

Karen qualified as a Body Control Pilates teacher in 2012 after years of practicing it for herself.  Body Control Pilates is widely seen as a benchmark for safe and effective teaching of the highest quality.  It is Europe’s largest professional Pilates organisation.

Coming from a performance background in dance, theatre and music Karen has always believed that movement is the key to a healthy life.  Through Pilates she encourages you to reach your movement potential, whatever that may be.  It is not a one size fits all exercise program it is more about finding and working within your own movement capabilities and requirements.  She will tailor each session around your needs and you will benefit from a 1:1 session where you can fine tune what you are learning in the group classes.

You don’t have to have done Pilates before to come on this holiday, it is open to all – beginners through to advanced.

Your walking companion – Caroline

Caroline just loves being in the mountains and in 2012, she qualified as a hiking leader with the French Mountain Environment Federation having spent the last decade or so discovering the multitude of tracks that criss-cross the Grand Massif and beyond, both on foot and on horseback.

She is an enthusiastic amateur when it comes to geology,  flowers and other wildlife and is keen to learn more and share this interest with others.

Your Chef – Nick

Nick has been catering for our guests for the past 18 years and over that time, he has amassed more than 200 different recipes, taking culinary influences from every corner of the world.

He is passionate about cooking and loves trying out and creating new recipes.  His home-cooked meals are wholesome and delicious.  Many guests return as much for the food as for the activities on offer in Les Carroz.
