France 2020

 

 

We are delighted to be returning to one of our favourite retreat venues in 2020.  The beautiful La Pierre Verte in the South of France to host 2 weeks of family retreats in a fantastic Oak woodland venue, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves.

Through running retreats in the past, we know that being with Nature and spending as much time as possible outside is so important and it helps us to move away from technology and the modern world and reconnect with ourselves. We will be walking distance from the village of Arpaillargues and 5km from Uzes in the Languedoc Roussillon region.

We came here in 2019 and loved the place.  To check out the 2019 retreat and see some pictures then click here.

The venue.

Accommodation on these retreats comprises of spacious and comfortable Mongolian yurts and bell tents. The yoga will take place in a purpose built fully equipped outdoor shala. There is also a swimming pool, woodland play area and slide, rope swings, hammocks, slacklining, table tennis and many hidden away chill out area if you just need some ‘me time’ or to relax with a good book for a couple of hours. You can view the venue in further detail here.

Every retreat is different.  This is mainly down to the different families that come along and bring different energies and different ages of children to be a part of the retreat.  To get a rough idea of what happens on a family retreat we have shown a schedule from a previous retreat so you can get an idea of what is in store.  Every year we have different helpers that join us who bring a range of skills or interests with them so you never quite know what will happen!

 

Arrival times for all retreats are from 4pm and departure by 11am on the final day.
