"The Wellness Weekend was exactly what I needed. To disconnect from work, technology, family responsibilities and the usual routine; and reconnect with myself, friends and fresh air. The food was fantastic, the activities (if you chose to do everything or nothing) well organized and so much fun. We never stopped laughing.. Thank you!! "
