I was delighted to lose 13lb during my first 5 day visit to Slimmeria last year, and even more so to have kept it off without any major lifestyle adjustments. I decided to return primarily for the walks which take up at least 2 hours of each day, as I know I need to get fitter, so the weight loss...

Galia's non-nonsense approach yielded the best weight loss results I've had in years: 6lbs in four days. Thank you! The food is spartan but beautifully presented and the walks are inspiring. The exercise classes / programme keeps you busy and your mind off food. The house / setting are perfect for the retreat. I can't wait to return!

And another amazing weightloss! I first visited Slimmeria at Easter 2012 with my daughter: she lost 11lbs and I lost 10! Neither of us are particularly overweight so were stunned by these results. Fast forward 12 months and we revisited again - with yet more spectacular results. This time I lost 11 (having maintained my previous weightloss), and my daughter...

Galia is an excellent hostess. The retreat is both relaxing and challenging (in the best way). It's a perfect way to slim down before a holiday but also allows you to look more deeply at your attitude towards food so that you can make positive long term changes once you leave. 'I;ve been twice and both times I've met interesting...

The decision to go to Slimmeria was very much last minute.. booked on the week-end arriving Tuesday afternoon .My intention was to relax and chill with my teenage daughter. What struck me immediately upon my arrival was the stunning location; breath taking country views with undulating fields, a pretty vineyard and a warm welcome and weigh in. This gorgeous property...

The Slimmeria is not for the faint hearted it is an excellent detox retreat, for those that are new to exercise or have not exercised much over last 12-6 months, the exercise is definitely manageable provided you are happy to walk. March 2012 I decided it was time to address my weight issues and what better way than to start...

Trudging for 2-3 hours through mud up to our ankles (or, better, by the sea); working up a sweat in a challenging aerobics workshop straight afterwards; and following that with a muscle-clenching yoga session, all on a fruit juice breakfast. What's not to like? Then a salad lunch and aaah, there are spa treatments in the afternoon to soothe away...

If you are expecting to sit back,put your feet up and relax then you are in for a shock. However if you want to loose weight and question your habitations habits then this is the place to come.

Wow, what a week! Great group of people and staff were discreet and hardly conspicious which contributed to a week focused on detoxing, fitness and losing weight. Lost 11lbs and my wife lost 8lbs and not just that, we both came away fully refreshed mentally and physically. Best parts were the massages, the yoga sessions and the long brisk walks...
