For those who prefer yoga with a touch of glamour… Treat yourself to a week of spring sunshine in an exquisitely restored private hamlet set in the lavender and thyme-scented hills of Provençe (South of France) – May and June 2013 only.
Walk in the footsteps of the famous artists and writers from the 1960s and 70s who sought refuge here and left their mark on this timeless and magical place. Each of the hamlet’s eight houses has been restored with a tasteful and elegant simplicity. Eeverywhere you look you will find some object of beauty, or work of art, some artefact from the past, some secret bower, some idyllic vista over the wide, rolling, Mediterranean landscape.
Rooms with a view
Entirely secluded from the outside world and as though hewn from a single piece of rock, the 500 year old hamlet is surrounded by lavender fields, green oaks, fig and cypress trees. Walk from your cool, white room through the dry stone streets to the large, limestone-surround swimming pool with its views of the wild hills that provided the setting for classic French films, ‘Jean de Florette’ and ‘Manon des Sources’.
Enjoy yoga, walking, eating & dancing
Each 6-day Kaliyoga retreat includes:
- Morning and evening yoga classes
- Guided walks through the surrounding hills and gorges
- Three delicious, authentic, Provencal meals a day using local produce
Walking in the hills offers a dynamic and meditative space in which to experience the natural world. Breathe in the landscape before returning to a delicious, home-cooked lunch. In the evening, champagne cocktails are served on the terrace to the song of the cicadas…
