The Yoga Retreat

Removed from the stresses and strains of everyday life, imagine waking up in a corner of beautiful, rural quintessential France,

surrounded by rolling countryside, peace and tranquility. This retreat is a wonderful opportunity to combine nature’s own with daily yoga classes, meditation, delicious local culinary delights and experiencing the local culture.

This retreat is open to all, offering a wonderful opportunity to combine a deep practice of traditional yoga twice daily, guided walks in the nature, possible additional wellness treatments, swimming and relaxing in the soothing setting of our château.

A real time for oneself, to discover or rediscover the ancient techniques of yoga and reconnect and recharge, allowing us to become more flexible, to relax and know ourselves better.
