CULTURAL, YOGA & MEDITATION RETREAT IN PROVENCE
September 28 - October 3, 2021
Yoga and meditation in the heart of Provence at a charming restored 18th century winery
Going to the Provence is literally like stepping back in time since this region has kept it's cultural heritage intact. Domaine Des Clos is a boutique charming winery set amongst vineyards and fields of agriculture. Towns such as Nimes, St Remy De Provence and Avignon are just a short ride away making it an ideal location for cultural visits in your free time with plenty of nature in close vicinity.
Your daily and meditation classes will be held outside by a stunning pool (if weather permits) and there will be a trekking excursion to the famous Camargue, a unique protected wildlife reserve known in this region.
Our vegetarian chef, Beth from the UK will be tantalising your tastebuds with her "no nonsense", richly flavoured, colourful, varied vegetarian food so that you are energised and well nourished during these 5 days of restoration. Her years of experience, passion and love for cooking are evident in every single meal.
