Nutrition and Lifestyle is at the very core of what we do at Vie Retreats. Food is fundamental to our health and so it must be fundamental to your experience with us. Our in house chef; Hannah is an elite sports nutritionist and has many years of experience in top restaurants around the world. Her food is inventive, healthy, balanced and most importantly, absolutely delicious. We believe that eating healthily doesn’t need to be something to bear, when done well, it can be something to be amazed by. If great tasting, healthy food is important to you then Vie is the place for you.
