Yoga in the South of France

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!

 

What's Included

  • 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

  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner daily (one lunch will be pay on your own). All meals will be inventive vegetarian cuisine with a strong global influence.

  • 2 local glasses of wine with each dinner (it is France after all!)

  • Round trip private transportation from Perpignan to the retreat property (approx 1 hr, pick up from train station)

  • A private dedicated Facebook group with your fellow travelers, a detailed itinerary, a suggested packing list and constant support and communication leading up to and during the retreat. Let someone else handle all the logistics and planning. You just sign up, pack up and go!

What's Not Included

  • Round trip airfare to Barcelona El Prat (BCN) (recommended)

  • Train from Barcelona to Perpignan, France (about a 1 hr 20 min journey) - or other transportation to Perpignan as desired.

  • Early Bird by Sept. 30, 2019: $2280 - SOLD OUT

Please note:

  • 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.

Yoga in the South of France Retreat Past Guest Testimonial:

“This was my first yoga retreat with Anna & Above Yoga and it exceeded all my expectations. The pre-trip communication was perfectly detailed but not too much. I felt like all of my travel details were under control and the helpful tips on booking trains really made my preparation easy. Once we arrived to the retreat center, I felt like I was in heaven. The home and the property were like something out of a fairy tale book and I was completely in awe the entire time. The first full day of relaxation was my favorite and it was nice to have downtime to do yoga, read, eat healthy food and "just be". The following days were filled with perfectly planned excursions and really enhanced the trip. The bike riding with the picnic was probably my favorite as I would have never been able to plan something like that on my own. The food was incredible and very thoughtful. Anna & Jillian planned out appropriate yoga classes for the group and meditations included in the classes were really nice! The friendships formed on this trip will be something I will carry with me for a long time.”
