14th Moon Women's Wellness Retreats
14th Moon defines a woman's transition into Menopause. Officially, this is when a woman has not had her cycle for 12 months. With 13 moons in a year, the 14th moon signifies your transition into this next phase of your journey. And what a journey it is. No clear start or end point, crazy diversions, and an estimated time of arrival that could span years. Menopause is most certainly a trip. While there are many roads to Rome, we are here to share tips, knowledge and experiences to guide you on your way, as part of a wise and caring community. At La Maison du Loup, we make menopause management a priority. Our holistic retreat offers nutrition and activity advice, as well as plenty of relaxation options that are tailored toward helping women on their menopause journey. A vast variety of factors affect menopausal symptoms, and they affect us all individually depending on our life experiences. Join us for a life-changing experience that will leave you energized and empowered. The aim of our 14th Moon retreat is to arm you with information and techniques to shape YOUR best path.

We have reached the age when everything is starting to change, its known affectionately as PRE-MENOPAUSE, MENOPAUSE OR POST MENOPAUSE.
Whether we like it or not, we have to go through this period of change and with our retreat we are wanting to add a bit more fun, a sense of adventure, acceptance and laughter into what we all now realise is a very difficult stage of our lives.
Simone Simpson (your activity guide), Nik Stapley (private chef) and Barbara de Moubray (your holistic health & massage expert) are very excited to host this retreat in the Southern French Alps.
We will look after you in every way, as well as guide you to visit some of the most spectacular places in this special part of the world. We will walk amongst sun kissed limestone terraces, swim in the Mediterranean Sea and visit french perched villages alongside a daily routine of meditation, stretching, hiking, wild swimming, laughter and fine food.
We can do this ladies, together, with grace and style.
