Boot camp is true but except for the diet which is truly awful but gets the results which is what counts this was a fantastic experience. It is for those who seriously want to lose meaningful weight and having put yourself through this experience you should then be motivated not to put it back on. I lost 7lbs in 6... More

I was on the week of Sunday 28th April to Sunday 5th May. I lost 14 pounds by starting my detox 3 weeks earlier. Then 14 pounds on the week at Slimmeria. I have never tried portion control before - I was amazed by how easy it was - but then I expected to be climbing the walls! The exercise... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
