ZERO NEUF EXPERIENCES
In this increasingly sideways and overly connected world, we all need time to switch off and escape from our on-demand lives. Throughout the year we run a series of special events combining our shared love of food, creative, cycling and wellbeing. The philosophy remains the same regardless; giving you headspace to disconnect and claim back precious days and hours. You’ll find more details below.
Why not indulge yourself and join one of creative escapes. Run throughout the year you can try your hand at Annie Sloan chalk-painting (we are also an official supplier of her paints), fine art, sewing or perhaps a spot of upholstery appeals more. Our focus is one of gentle creativity in a relaxing environment with great food and drink enjoyed in unison.
Food is an integral part of life at Zero Neuf and this year, we’re collaborating with chef Gill Meller. Gill will use inspiration from our region’s rich local produce to prepare fabulous evening meals using the simple but delicious methods he is renowned for. He’ll also be present to take questions about his philosophy, methods and experiences.
In conjunction with our good friends at Essence Pilates and Room-2-Breathe, we run several yoga, pilates and reiki retreats throughout the year. The retreats will give you plenty of time to reconnect with yourself, escape and switch off while sharing your passion for pilates, yoga, reiki and the great outdoors. You will be treated to fabulous food, great wine and lots of increasingly important ‘You Time’.
If you’re seeking something a little different from your time on two wheels, why not join us for a weekend riding around the stunning Ariège, sourcing ingredients for chef Gill Meller to cook your evening meal over an open fire or a bike-packing trip with adventure cycling experts and a professional photographer in tow.
“In an age of speed, nothing could be more invigorating than going slow. In an age of distraction, nothing can feel more luxurious than paying attention. And in an age of constant movement, nothing is more urgent than sitting still.” – Pico Iyer
