Victoria Beckham took to Instagram this weekend to share a post from a wellness week that she had jetted off to in Germany. Victoria's caption read 'Back from a week of wellness at the amazing @villastephaniebadenbaden @brennersparkhhotel!'. Victoria is no stranger to the retreat, her last visit - to out knowledge - being the same time last year when she was accompanied by husband and fellow health obsessive David Beckham. Then Victoria posted an idyllic picture of the two together to her grid with the caption, 'Postcard from our wellness week in Germany! Kisses @davidbeckham xx @villastephaniebadenbaden @drharrykoenig'. It goes without saying that Villa Stéphanie has long been on our radar and any Victoria-Beckham-approved wellness retreat deserves our full attention and a comprehensive explainer. Scroll on down to learn more about one of VB's favourite wellness destinations.
Villa Stéphanie describes itself as a 'Hotel, Spa & Medical Center in one - A complete House of Wellbeing situated next to the Black Forest'. That'll do.
Victoria Beckham mentioned Dr Harry Koenig who, according to Villa Stéphanie, 'creates personalized therapies for you based on naturopathic medicine in association with the finest clinics and one of the best and most highly trained specialists. Needless to say the Beckham's were likely treated to a little more than your average herbal tea spa massage!

Victoria Beckham used this Victoria Beckham Beauty launch to say 'Posh is back' and we loved it. The lipsticks are smooth, creamy and come in 9 different shades. Which one will you choose?
This dusky shade of shimmer builds up easily from a subtle wash of colour to a dark punch of pigment. Apply it with a shadow brush or your fingertips.
This liner is as soft and buttery as they come. Create a sleek graphic line with a sharpened nib or buff it out gently with a liner brush for a gorgeous diffused smoky eye finish.
This sheer, glossed-up lip balm acts like a lip stay and matches each and every one of the Victoria Beckham Beauty lip liners perfectly.
These lip liners were a late addition to the range after its launch, and they're Victoria's own go-to liners. The colours are entirely wearable and they were an immediate hit.
Victoria Beckham and Sarah Creal wanted to create the all-purpose serum. Their aim was to be able to use a single serum and their moisturiser, rather than reaching for every lotion and potion under the sun in the midst of a complicated skincare routine. They joined forces with Professor Augustinus Bader to produce a do-it-all serum that seriously delivers.
This was the first collaboration between Victoria Beckham Beauty and Professor Augustinus Bader, a moisturiser packed with actives that plump and tone as well as smoothing skin from the off, so much so, they decided to highlight its complexion priming abilities in its name.
