SEPT 16-20, 2024

Provence Lavender Fields

Hello, Beautiful. I'd like to invite you to experience a transformational week with me in Provence, one you'll likely never forget.

Picture yourself strolling through narrow streets in charming hilltop villages, surrounded by stone houses with colorful shutters. Every corner reveals architectural treasures, ancient fountains, and picturesque churches, a rich heritage.

One of the most magical aspects of Provence is its natural scenery. The expansive fields of lavender, lush vineyards producing renowned wines, and centuries-old olive groves... each panorama is a living painting. 

You will be captivated by the vibrant colors and intoxicating scents of the Provençal nature.

Gastronomy is a pillar of Provence's magic. Local markets are brimming with fresh and flavorful produce: vibrant vegetables, artisanal cheeses, aromatic herbs, and, of course, the indispensable Provence olive oil. 

But what truly sets Provence apart is its traditions that celebrate the art of living. Meander through lively Provençal markets and you will be immersed in a warm and festive ambiance that makes the heart of Provence beat.

Lastly, Provence is a haven of peace and relaxation. Its tranquil landscapes, peaceful vineyards, and fragrant gardens offer an ideal setting to rejuvenate and reconnect with yourself, find inspiration and serenity. The perfect backdrop for our transformative time together.

My philosophy for living life is simple - why would you settle for less than absolutely everything? 

What if we were to get all of our needs met? What if you gave yourself the permission to make your ideal life a reality?

This intimate retreat is about giving you the space and inspiration to create a juicy, inspired, and deeply fulfilling life for yourself, even in the midst of what you already have going on around you.   

The idea is that, together, we’ll look at what dreams you’ve been pushing down in the water like a beach ball, and finally give you the permission to live your truth, express yourself, and explore what it means for you to be the most authentic version of yourself. 

We’ll reverse-engineer how to live your best life, and you’ll walk away with an action plan to manifest your version of A Delicious Life. 

Your dreams, desires, and aspirations matter.
Let’s discover these together in Provence.

 I have since spoken to countless women who feel they have settled in many aspects of their life, have let themselves go, or who want to feel like their needs matter, that they are more than worthy of “more”.
In past retreats in Provence, I began sharing with women the tools, experiences and best practices I had used to create a Delicious Life I love, and they then used those same tools in their own life. 

They blossomed, found pleasure and joy in the everyday. They felt more beautiful, became happier and more carefree.

This process changed their life too. And now, I’d like to share it with you.

Could just a week change a life forever? Apparently so.

"'Being with Fabienne in Provence for a week was a magical experience that had a profound impact on my life. Fabienne has a gift for creating a welcoming environment that encourages self-discovery and growth. Her wisdom, love, and guidance helped me to envision and work towards a life that is deeply fulfilling and authentic. The fact that it was held in Provence only added to the amazingness of it all. I came home with newfound confidence, a sense of purpose, and a toolkit of practices to implement in my everyday life. The retreat was truly a life-altering experience."
- Retreat Attendee

I believe a Delicious Life involves all the senses,
so you feel what it's like to live fully.

Picture yourself waking up to the gentle fragrance of lavender fields, a symphony of colors and scents enveloping you.

As the sun rises, you'll embark on a voyage through medieval villages classified as the most beautiful in France, and take in the breathtaking views.
Throughout the week, we'll embark on excursions to enchanting Provançal markets brimming with abundant local foods, select olive oils for you to take back home (lavender honey too), and savor world-renowned wines that embody the essence of this region, that you can ship back home, if you like. 

We’ll dine together, get to know each other, have fun and talk about what you dream of and how to make your most rewarding life a reality. 

Here, we will have deep conversations, laughter, camaraderie, and if the mood presents itself, we may push the dining table to the side after Derek grills us an incredible meal so we can dance, or better yet, talk all night next to a fire beneath the stars, under cozy blankets.

I have carefully curated this week as a feast for your senses.
And for me, delicious food is a big part of that. 

Some days will also be filled with hands-on instruction in my kitchen, surrounded by the melodies of jazz or French café music. 

Together, we will indulge in the art of cooking simply and elegantly to have you replicate this with ease at home and experience the joy of sharing meals with your loved ones.

With a glass of chilled rosé in hand, you'll discover the magic of creating elegant food that nourishes your soul, effortlessly.

Everything we prepare comes from what I intend to include in my upcoming lifestyle & cooking book called, A Delicious Life. I will show you how to easily make food that feeds the soul, whether for an elegant midweek meal that feels like you’re eating out, or for dinner guests on a Saturday night, with surprisingly low effort and very few ingredients.

Most importantly, you’ll be giving yourself permission to have it all, whatever “all” means to you.

All week, we will combine Powerful Conversations with Exquisite Excursions. Each day, we'll dive deeper into self-discovery, engaging in meaningful topics that center around manifesting your dreams and having it all, on your own terms. 

A Delicious Life is about embracing all facets of your existence, and I believe that transformation happens when we stretch what we believe we deserve and boldly go after it. We will do this in the company of other wonderful women who are successful in their own right but want more out of life (just because).

Past participants are still raving about how it changed their lives at a core level

"Attending the 'A Delicious Life Retreat' with Fabienne was truly a transformative experience. It was as if I had walked into a space where I could fully be myself, unapologetically and completely. The retreat is so much more than just a getaway – it's an exploration of self and possibility. I can't thank Fabienne enough for creating this experience. It's been a few months since the retreat, and I still feel the effects rippling through my daily life. If you're on the fence, let me tell you, it's worth it. It’s more than worth it – it's life-changing."

It's time to release those dreams you've been pushing down into the water like a beach ball all these years.

In the stunning backdrop of Provence, surrounded by centuries-old landscapes, you'll be inspired to infuse even more beauty and fulfillment into your life. 

Each sunrise will remind you that you're meant for more than just going through the motions, while each sunset over the lavender fields will invite you to embrace the life of your dreams.

Imagine a sacred space, in a loving community of women you will call friends, where you can manifest the life you've always dreamed of—a life filled with passion, purpose, and pleasure.

It's about giving yourself permission to put your needs first by unearthing and creating the Delicious Life of your dreams. 

We'll help you gain clarity on what your ideal life looks like, and together, we'll reverse-engineer your intentions, crafting a tangible plan to bring your dreams to fruition.
"Fabienne Provence retreat was a game-changer for me. It gave me a safe and supportive space to examine my life, reconnect with my desires, and reignite my zest for life. The activities, from cooking lessons to visiting all the villages I’d only dreamed of going before, were all curated with care and love. I returned home feeling rejuvenated and motivated to create a life that is aligned with my values and what makes me happy. Joining this retreat was one of the best decisions I've ever made."
- Retreat Attendee

This intimate retreat has limited spots to ensure a personalized experience that you'll cherish forever.

I want to invite you to join me here, beautiful soul, for a week of transformation, eating delicious food with me daily, laughter, visits to markets and gorgeous villages, friendship, wine and olive oil tastings, and more. 

Obviously, this intimate retreat has limited spots so you have a personalized experience. Past attendees will tell you, this is an experience you will never forget.
"The 'A Delicious Life Retreat' exceeded all my expectations. Fabienne’s approach of exploring what 'having it all' means on an individual level made the experience very personal and deeply rewarding. The mix of personal development, adventure, and culinary experiences was absolutely perfect. Not only did I leave with amazing memories, but I also came away with practical tools and insights that I've been able to integrate into my everyday life. If you're considering attending, don't hesitate. It's an investment in yourself that will pay dividends in the form of a more fulfilling and delicious life."
