Holiday in Mâcon

Filed under: Places — Tags: — Mary @ 20:55


It was an offer I couldn’t refuse. A five day retreat in a health centre in Mâcon, 5* accommodation with ensuite bathroom and all meals included.  Treatment programme to ensure rapid loss of weight, detox and a cure for addiction to alcohol and caffeine. A team of health care professionals on call day and night. As an added bonus a five day immersion course in medical French with emphasis on bodily functions.

5* menu for the week

Unfortunately in order to qualify for this luxury accommodation I had to get appendicitis. After the op I couldn’t eat the lovely dinners but survived all week on yoghurts and apple compote, neither of which I ever want to see again.

But now that I’m home every meal that Chris prepares tastes absolutely delicious, the flowers look brighter and the world is a wonderful place. Thanks to all those who visited and supported me, especially Chris who drove to Mâcon twice a day to spend time with me, and now looks after me so well at home.
