If a holistic lifestyle and innovative green design is what you are looking for in a retirement venue, look no further than The La Vie Nouvelle Retirement and Wellness Village, conveniently located in Broadacres, Gauteng.
The concept of holistic wellness, financial, physical, spiritual and emotional, forms the basis of the village's ethos. This flows through from the specialised architectural design and greening design principles, to the security measures, on-site wellness centre and amenities, amongst others.
The village consists of 220 well-appointed units, varying from two- to three-bedroom simplexes to one- and two-bedroom garden cottages. A 47-bed frail-care centre forms part of the six-phase complex, currently due for completion by the end of May 2019.
Various concepts including energy consumption (gas, heat pumps, etc), water conservation (rainwater harvesting, grey water usage), the optimisation of natural light and wind circulation are implemented to save on utility expenses.
The centre offers a heated indoor pool, consulting rooms, hairdressing services, hydrotherapy, a gym area, as well as chronic diseases treatment/therapies.
