Come with us and revel in the beautiful sun while you soak up fresh mountain air on this 7-day retreat held at Le Ferme St Pierre in the mountains of Southern France’s beautiful Gorges du Verdon River Valley.
With rolling green hills, wild almond trees and a stunning view of the castle Bargeme, you are sure to feel re-born, re-vitalized and awakened inside and out…The farmhouse is located 45-minutes just north of Nice in the foothills of The Alps.
Carina and her family have completely renovated the farm house that was built in 1100 and created a beautiful place to rest and revive. The farm has over 20 horses that you can ride and visit daily. They also have geese, goats and chickens where the fresh eggs come from. Along with the house is a bunk house that has it’s own kitchenette, shower and wood pelt fireplace. Both the farmhouse and bunkhouse are available for the retreat. There are many activities in addition to the daily yoga classes and optional Reiki or massage with Carina. Massage, Reiki, Yoga, hiking, castle visits, visiting the animals and just soaking up the sun are all activities to partake in to fill your day in the best way.
We will partake in 2 day trips. One day we will take a guided horse tour to the River Gorge du Verdon a hidden gem within the Southern France landscape that features beautiful scenery with a white rock gorge and pristine blue waters.
While another day we will venture to Castellane, famous for their perfumes where we will visit the weekly market and hike to the historical Castellane Rock.
Upon returning we will eat our lunch of organic, fresh food on Carina’s sun soaked large veranda. at La Ferme St Pierre there is plenty of beauty to surround yourself with. There is also many activities including horse riding, hiking trails, beautiful scenic views of The Alps and historic castles to visit.
Just imagine awaking to the morning with the lifting fog of the night and starting your day out with a morning yoga class led by Caitlyn at the spring fed pool. In the afternoon find yourself lounging on the patio with a prepared lunch of organic, farm raised, local fare for every palette. Enjoy a dip in the spring fed pool, then taking a walk to the nearby castle. Thai massage, Reike, horse rides and trips to the local wine region or Gorges du Verdon are our day trips.
The schedule of the retreat is designed to maximize your experience and each day will start with yoga and meditation and every afternoon with a healthy lunch and then you are free all afternoon to explore; roam where you like, enjoying the many surrounding pleasures and coming back in the evening to a nice warm fire or sunset watch.
