To all at Vila Mimosa, Thank you so much for everything you have done for me and my dad over the last two weeks. I came feeling tired, unfit and very unhappy with my body and the way I was feeling. After only 11 days I feel like a different person. Not only do I feel energised and clean but I am starting to feel better in my own skin. This trip has given me the foundations to go home and continue to grow in energy, health and confidence. The entire team here are fantastic. Everyone of you will remain in my heart, you all made me feel at home and provided such a positive environment. Thank you all so, so, so much. I cannot begin to thank you enough for everything. I will be back! Many thanks! Much love.

Message from Chris and Justine on 10.07.2014
Dear Team Vila Mimosa, We both thank you for a fantastic week. Our large group of 18 was a great fun group and forgetting the ´fasting´it was like a ´jolly holiday´. Fasting was a breeze - the juices and soups were superb, better than anywhere else we´ve been to. The villa is relaxed, supercleen and very cosy - the whole week has been a lovely experience - thank you for having such comfy beds, it makes all the difference when you need to have a good sleep. We love the combo of excercise and fasting - all the team have been amazing. Thank you for arranging the trips out, it was lovely to see more of the área. We are so pleased to have found you and can´t wait to come back. Thank you all.

I arrived at Vila Mimosa a week ago as an emotional and physical wreck! I am now departing feeling like superwoman! My heartfelt thanks goes to all the team, every single one of you has helped me achieve my goals and made my story here a wonderful experience. The attention to detail is impeccable.

So from now on it´s goodbye Homefield Grange and hello Vila Mimosa! Love
