7 days + 6 nights // May 30 - June 5, 2020 - SOLD OUT
Our incredibly popular South of France boutique retreat experience is back! This retreat is limited to 10 guests and is expected to sell out quickly.
Whether it's your first time in Europe or your fifth, indulge in life’s simple pleasures in one of the area’s most breathtaking regions - famous for their organic wines!
7 days + 6 nights shared accommodations at an environmentally conscious retreat center held exclusively for Above Yoga guests
The property is in the Languedoc wine region in the South of France tucked between the Pyrenees Mountains and only 30 minutes from the Mediterranean Sea; enjoy the vineyards, olive groves and an organic garden on-site
Daily yoga classes in breathtaking indoor and outdoor practice spaces with spectacular views of the nearby mountain ranges
Several excursions to fully immerse yourself in the stunning landscapes, food and culture of southern France:
Biking tour through picturesque vineyards, villages, gorges and ancient castle ruins with a mountain side picnic
An interactive wine tasting and food pairing night on the property; tour of a local vineyard and winery
Excursion to Collioure, a former fishing village on the edge of the sea, that was the inspiration for the Fauvist painters with brightly colored vistas
Exhilarating guided mountain hike with spectacular views
Time to explore the quaint local French villages nearby - shop for treasures to bring home or dine al fresco while sipping wine on a cobblestone street side cafe and patio
New in 2020: A multi-course luxury lunch at the nearby world-famous Auberge du Vieux Puits. Chef Gilles Goujon has been awarded 3 Michelin stars, making this one of only 133 restaurants in the world to receive the highest possible Michelin star rating. This will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience in this cozy restaurant tucked into the nearby village of Fontjoncouse
Plenty of free time to explore the property: wander through vineyards, walk to a local village, read in a lounger or take a dip in the ecological swimming basin

You will need to leave the US on Friday, May 29 in order to arrive by Saturday, May 30. Taking more time in Europe before or after is encouraged… no better spot than beautiful Barcelona to stay a few nights to bookend your retreat!
This is a eco-friendly and fully autonomous property that is off-the-grid. So, like much of Europe, there is no A/C, but the house’s thick walls and the area’s breeze keep it naturally temperature-controlled.
Also please note that there is no WiFi access at the retreat property and cell service is spotty. Guests are encouraged to take time away from their devices to reconnect with nature, themselves & other guests.
Average weather for early June: high 77 / low 62
If you are traveling with a friend(s), please email us to indicate your preferred roommate(s) after sending in your deposit. All other guests will be placed with a carefully-chosen roommate.
