A transformative experience
I have been to many destination spas over the years. Cal-a-Vie is very unique for the following reasons ... -Small groups (only 24 rooms) -Gorgeous grounds and beautifully decorated -Personalized service - when I was visiting, there were only 15 guests, so I had one-on-one sessions with fitness trainers! Awesome! You truly feel like you have stepped into a small, quaint European village. I will be back again and again!

Enjoyed my vacation
I very much enjoyed my visit to Cal-a-Vie and will probably go there again. The spa treatments, fitness classes, and the spa cuisine were all terrific. The décor and scenery were beautiful and relaxing at the same time. Everyone that worked there was very pleasant and accommodating. It was very convenient that they provide T-shirts, sweatpants, shorts, robes, etc, and housekeeping restocked the rooms several times each day. Extra clothing was also plentiful in the fitness center and spa. Many guests wear their spa-provided clothing to all 3 meals, so you really don't need to bring much with you at all. While the fitness classes were plentiful, I would have preferred there to be more in the ways of nutrition or healthy lifestyle talks/discussion, as there was only a very brief talk by the dietitian during breakfast one morning (less than 10 minutes) and some healthy food tips from the chef during the cooking demonstration. Anything more required a private consultation with the dietitian for an additional fee. This would have been a good use for the evenings, when there were little or no planned activities (a slight disappointment). One thing to consider when visiting Cal-a-Vie is that it is small, there are sometimes under 20 guests, and you are seated at tables of 6 for indoor meals (generally breakfast and dinner) or 4 for outdoor meals (generally lunch); seats are not pre-assigned. This can be good or bad, depending on who the other guests are. If you travel there alone (which most people seem to) and there is a good group, it's a great way to meet others, make friends, and have interesting conversations. If you are not comfortable with some of the other guest, it can be awkward at mealtime.

A Little Piece of Heaven
I go to Cal A Vie yearly now. It is something I look forward to all year. I have met wonderful people there and have learned to change my lifestyle. The morning workouts are tough but wonderful. It makes the afternoon pampering all the;more better. The food is so creative and filling that I don't even realize that I'm consuming only 1200 calories. The grounds feel like something out of the south of France. It is a must do!

Luxuriously appointed with fine linens and hand crafted furniture, each villa is decorated uniquely to welcome and relax you.

World-renowned for its low calorie gourmet cuisine, Cal-a-Vie guests enjoy meals in the comfortable and inviting dining room as well as on the beautiful and serene courtyards. Proper nutrition plays an integral role in helping achieve personal fitness goals. Cal-a-Vie has developed a menu that not only nourishes, but also strives to instill within each guest the notion that simple, healthy eating can be elevated to gourmet status. The gourmet cuisine is enhanced by garden fresh herbs and vegetables that are carefully prepared and artfully presented to help slim, balance, and revitalize your body while meeting your unique nutritional needs. Guests so enjoy the cuisine at Cal-a-Vie, that a cookbook was created to stem the constant requests from past guests for recipes used at the spa.
