Aged to Perfection 

"Time is precious, and none of us have enough to waste on unhappiness." 

If you're questioning whether your current relationship is worth your time, craving the return of romance's spark, or yearning for more fulfillment in life, you're not alone. 

Maybe you've recently become an empty nester, feeling adrift without your children at home. Perhaps retirement hasn't unfolded as expected, leaving you and your partner wondering what's next. Or maybe unexpected circumstances, like raising grandchildren, have upended your envisioned future.

Now, picture yourself in a place where the beauty of the surroundings sooths your soul. Envision being in this tranquil setting connected with a close-knit group of like-minded individuals, all on a journey to find peace, happiness, and a fresh vision for the future. Together, you explore facets of yourself while discovering the nuances of fine wine. You have found that special place.

Struggling to figure out what comes next? Our life experiences can either empower us with wisdom or confine us to a suffocating existence. You have the power to choose. Despite your circumstances, you can find happiness and freedom. Let us guide you on that journey.

Navigating life's transitions can be a difficult journey, particularly when they catch us off guard. Questions like "Who am I now?", Will I ever find happiness again?", can echo through the core of our identity, leading to anxiety, restlessness, and depression.

Have faith! The answers are within you – If you know where to look!


Take a morning stroll through the lush domain of Chateau Angueiroun, where the careful cultivation of grapes mirrors the initial stages of personal growth. Engage in workshops and activities focused on awakening your senses to experience the beauty of life, exploring the uniqueness of your own life experiences while experiencing the intricacies of fine wine and the romance of the French Riviera.

Amidst the serenity of the vineyard, take time for you. Our experienced facilitators will guide you through a process that awakens your senses, helps you assimilate your experiences, and extract valuable insights into the person you want to be. You begin to feel the dormant flame reignite within. You know you want more from the next season of your life.

Experience the breathtaking allure of the French Riviera as you hike along the Mediterranean. Pause along the cliffs to marvel at the boundless expanse of serenity stretching before you. Feel the sensation of paradise as you inhale the invigorating sea breeze, confirming that you are indeed in the lap of French Mediterranean luxury.

Welcome to Bormes les Mimosas - and this is just the beginning!

Life's finer things become priceless with time, each moment gaining immeasurable value. Aging, like the careful crafting of beef, bourbon, cheeses, or vintage wines, intensifies the pleasure and significance we appreciate. This intentional aging brings about a symphony of positive effects.

As we age, our edges soften, perspectives mellow, and rich, flavorful notes emerge from our personalities. Just like the aging process of fine wine, our transformation thrives in a conducive environment, shaping us into the person we are meant to become. Embrace the journey—this is Aged to Perfection, a celebration of life's beautiful evolution!

John and Sylvie's Story

John and Sylvie, both divorced after years of marriage, each had abandoned the idea of dating and short-term relationships. Instead, they dedicated themselves to self-discovery, healing, and creating a meaningful life without relying on a partner. Embracing the idea that their current life season might be a solo journey, they discovered a passion for serving others through coaching. Their paths converged when John, having given up on finding someone, stumbled upon Sylvie's coaching profile on Facebook. Struck by her genuine philosophy and honesty, he sent a spontaneous friend request, leading to a surprising and prompt reply.

Sylvie, determined not to compromise on genuine love, tenderness, and shared happiness, recalled a 4 am Facebook friend request that sparked daily conversations about their learnings, dreams, disappointments and shared passion for coaching. The exchanges evolved into video meetings, eventually culminating in a proposal to meet in Paris on Valentine's Day.

John and Sylvie, now married, are united in pursuing their dream of helping others through the power of coaching.
