Dear Kristi and John, thank you for hosting us for our annual Holis retreat. We enjoyed our stay in your beautiful house. The nearby market is a festival for any food lover. The walks in the surroundings gave us an opportunity to have deep talks. Your hospitality made us feel at home. I'm grateful for that experience. Hope to be there again soon.

Dear John and Kristi,
you’ve created an amazing place, filled with peace and unique energy. A place that adjusts to the pace of the visitor, and inspires on so many levels. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experiences, for the walks in nature, and for the hospitality that created a feeling of home. It was a great and unforgettable experience.

First of all, I’m super grateful to John and Kristi who gave me a chance to have a very enjoyable time in their home. It’s a very beautiful memory. I was addicted to the peaceful and comfortable life of Ganges. At the same time, many very valuable opinions and suggestions have been obtained both in professional and life by talking with John. Looking forward to meeting next time!

In the place that “chose him”, @john.a.thackara opened his house for small meetups. Not everyday you have the chance to discuss your projects with someone, whose work helps you understand this world. Thanks for advising @weareholis (again)! As @lmaximl said: “It’s not easy to leave Ganges”

The Thackara Meetup 2019 was a wonderful experience overall and a unique opportunity to develop a better understanding of my personal-professional practice. After a week spending time with John and Kristi, the other meetupers, in Ganges and nature, and on my own, I was able to develop a more cohesive story to define my personal-professional practice and goals. I am forever grateful for this opportunity.

For me, the meet-up was truly life-changing; brilliant content, group company, accommodation, food and the waterfalls were to die for! John gave me the boost I needed and input from the group kickstarted a project so dear to my heart — thank you John!!

I genuinely enjoyed the every single moment I spent during the week. Thanks to not only the fantabulous Thackara team but also amazing talents from diverse backgrounds who all were absolutely lovely, I had a very productive week. It was just a right balance of fun & work time in the absolutely gorgeous environment, which contributed to the great creativity/ satisfaction.

John and Kristi, your house is an absolute dream! I felt so welcomed and comfortable. You allowed us to take everything at our own paces, and gave us access to some beautiful places around Ganges.
The mixture of one-to-ones and group conversations provided a loose but effective framework to help push my design practice forward. I'm coming away feeling refreshed, excited to work, and with a whole new set of amazing friends!

I was working on my first book and it was amazingly helpful to have the space (both mentally and physically) to concentrate on this whilst getting constructive input and advice from JT and other participants.

the perfect place to hide out and finish writing that thesis, project proposal, or book

Bright, spacious, homie and comfortable with vintage furniture and art/design books. Highly recommended if you want to see the real french countryside out of the touristic trails. Merci!

We used the place as working retreat to concentrate, to be together and to work. We enjoyed the relaxed feel of the area and the nice atmosphere of the house.
The apartment on the second floor has a very good size and we fit perfectly with 4 adults. It is like described, even better. Highly recommended!
