Born in the Seychelles Islands, Ken Jourdan, owner and proprietor of Rhone Retreat, grew up on islands throughout the world.  His diverse childhood experiences gave him an appreciation for all cultures and for a lifestyle that promotes health and wellbeing on an individual basis.

Graduating from Florida State University with a degree in Food and Nutrition, Ken furthered his desire to improve the lives of his clients by attending the CORE Institute of Massage Therapy. With these certifications, Ken moved to Telluride, Colorado where he was a staff Massage Therapist at The Peaks Spa and Resort for three years.  During that time he also developed a private massage clientele. 

Moving back to the south US Ken worked with the British Boxing Team during the 1996 Atlanta, GA Olympics before settling in Destin, FL where he continued to build his private clientele until his move to Europe in the fall of 2001.

Immersion classes in French while living in Paris and Toulouse, France then in Spanish while living in Barcelona, Spain have served Ken well as he explored the country and eventually purchased the property he has renovated to make Rhone Retreat a true destination vacation.
