Join the most wonderful retreat set in the stunning and peaceful French Alps
Eat, hike, yoga
An unforgettable experience to spend time surrounded by majestic ice-capped mountains in the summer sun.
Yoga, hiking and delicious local food made with love from our private chef.
We will stay in the charming ‘le dojo’, a previous farm house, converted into a beautiful chalet. Le dojo boasts its very own private Yoga Chalet, where we will practice every day.
With views over the quaint village of Samoens and surrounded by the sublime French Alps we believe this is one of the most magical places in the world.
Le dojo has 2 twin rooms, 3 rooms of 3 and a room of 6, some en suite and some shared bathrooms.
Please let us know which room you would like. We will only reserve it once the payment is made in full.
Some reasons why Samoëns is 'tres magique'
It is a natural heritage site!
Samoëns is the only French mountain resort classified as national heritage. Daily life revolves around a picturesque marketplace, whose centrepiece is an imposing lime tree, Le Gros Tilleul, planted in 1438.

A Typical Day on Retreat
We rise and shine early in noble silence and roll into a therapeutic yoga class with a specific theme, eg correct breathing techniques, and finish the session with a calming meditation. Then it’s time to sample the delicious breakfast and tea. This is followed by some downtime to mingle, digest and energize then its a more active class followed by lunch and then the afternoon to explore the magical surroundings. We meet again in the afternoon for a softer practice, delicious and nutritious dinner and a final talk to round off a perfect day of nature, movement, and meditation.
Other top tips!
- It can get a bit cooler hiking in the mountains or at night, so bring something warm to snuggle around your body.
- If you want to hire a car so you can get around easier in the afternoons let us know and we can give you some recommendations.
- If you are into photography we really recommend bringing your camera as the scenery is breathtaking!
- Marie is a magnificent masseur and has her very own massage room in the chalet. So if you want to treat yourself to an ayurvedic, Hawaiian, Californian, hot stones or foot Thai reflexology let us know and we can book a spot.
- Last but not the least, don’t forget your swimwear for the lakes, the waterfalls….. and the hot tub under the stars!
