REVIEW from Lesley  ...  

"My husband Steve and I stayed with Shirley and her husband Nigel when their beautiful villa was run as a retreat. The villa itself is gorgeous and the rooms are so comfortable and spacious, with views over the surrounding countryside. There is a wonderful sense of peace there and all your cares melt away, within a short space of time. Shirley and Nigel have renovated this beautiful villa to their own specifications and they are such good hosts. Shirley is a great cook and the meals were delicious with the wonderful ambience. They took time to see that we were happy there. Their swimming pool is a lovely way to relax in the sunshine too. Shirley will now be running workshops there and I can't recommend her enough. We have also attended her workshops in the past in England and had a fantastic time with like minded people. Her meditation group was so inspiring as were the others she planned. They are well thought out and I always came away feeling uplifted and much happier. Book now on one of these workshops in Croatia. You will have a great time and feel empowered."


REVIEW from Jennie  ...

"It is a testiment to Shirley and Nigel, that although I visited Transition Retreat some years ago, I still harbour dreams of returning. I have been to various retreats, but this one has stayed special in my heart. I needed to find somewhere totally tranquil to take a friend recovering from a shocking bereavement. This place did more for us than I can even begin to explain. Shirley is an angel and so grounding. Talented in various healing principles. Everything, from the kindness and care we were shown, the wonderful healing treatments, the beautiful immaculate rooms and garden, the chickens and their freshly gifted eggs, the herb garden, the pool, the walks Nigel took us on, the lovely fresh food provided and biodynamic wine, the bespoke and respectful support we were shown to not only relax but also enjoy our time in Croatia - guidance of where to go, extra personal trips with them too. I look back and can't quite believe all the lovely things and good memories we had - even though it was a short trip at a very hard time. I'm sure some things have changed since I went, but if you want total peace, relaxation, beauty, kindness, nature, from lovely authentic people, you can't get much better. This is a retreat in every sense of the word".
