Experience summer solstice at the endless Atlantic coastline. Be there when the sun awakens in France and the beaches are still empty. The long lasting summer day around the summer solstice makes it one of the most beautiful times of the year. Spend this precious time by deepening your yoga practice, immersing yourself in surfing sessions, joining French classes, or just relaxing at the beach or in the garden.
During this retreat, you will be staying at Atlantic Surf Lodge. Because of its quiet location, the Atlantic Surf Lodge is perfect to calm down and relax. The accommodation is dorms for four or five in mezzanine style, but you can also book a single or double room at an additional price. The bathroom is common and offers a lot of space with several showers, toilets, and sinks.
The meeting place is the large sunny yard, and to chill, you can withdraw in the beautiful garden. Furthermore, the lodge has a large living room with fireplace, a cozy television lounge, two sun terraces, a new yoga room, and a barbecue area. Apart from free Wi-Fi, books, Indoboards, and bikes, there is water, coffee, tea, and fresh food available all day, so you can feel like home.
Come and join this perfect week of retreat to dive into summer. Yoga Delight chose this week on purpose around the summer solstice as the long lasting summer day make this time of the year one of the most beautiful, the temperatures announce summer but at the same time you benefit from the advantages of the low season.
You will start the day with yoga on the dune and view over the endless coastline along the Atlantic Ocean, have dinner outside and with daylight, and enjoy the sunset with red wine on the dune. It is totally up to you how you spend the time between the yoga sessions, surfing, French classes, or just relaxing at the beach or in the garden. As with all, this retreat also accommodates other guests as well, so that you can travel with a friend or partner who wants to do less or no yoga at all.
Each morning, a new dynamic Vinyasa Flow will wake you up on the dune with view over the ocean, afterwards an ample breakfast buffet is awaiting you. The time after breakfast you can spend as you like, surfing and beach, table tennis and slackline in the garden, bike tours in the pine forest, or trips to the beautiful Basque country (Bayonne, Biarritz, St. Jean de Luz, San Sebastian) or to the nearby surf mecca, Hossegor. Maybe you want to improve your French? Yoga Delight works with a local language school and can organize a private or mini group course.
In the afternoon, it is yoga time again. For the evening classes, you will change between restorative Yin Yoga (three sessions) and special classes (two sessions). The special classes are the benefit of the retreat: They are designed so you can intensify your individual practice. You will talk about all kind of questions and work on positions which are challenging you, no matter if it is downward facing dog or handstand, cobra, or full wheel. Your yoga experience does not matter here, as well as in any other classes.
In the evening, you will chill out with a bottle of French red wine in the garden, for sunset on the dune, or in one of the nearby beach bars.
Yoga Delight does not want to organize neither a group holiday or an ascetic fasting retreat. It is totally up to you how you want to spend your time, there will for sure be enough people to share it with. This retreat is created to be flexible on purpose, so there are always participants there who have nothing to do with yoga, which means you are welcome to travel with a friend or partner who are not into yoga or just want to take a few classes.
The core of the week will be to deepen your yoga practice, exercise in nature, good food, relaxed atmosphere, and some Bordeaux or Merlot for the heart and pure yoga delight.
This retreat will be held in the cozy village of Vieux Boucau, in the region Les Landes, directly at the French Atlantic coast. Only five minutes from the beach, the lodge is located perfectly, with some very good beach breaks or as a base to reach the more hidden spots up north and the world famous breaks of Seignosse and Hossegor in the south.
The nearby center has surf shops, cafes, bars, restaurants, supermarkets, boutiques, ATM's, cinema, post office, and pharmacy. Les Landes is only a few kilometers north of the Basque country, but the nature could not be any different. While the Basque country impresses with bays and a green hilly scenery, at Vieux Boucau, you find endless beaches and dense pine forests.
During this retreat, you will be served three daily meals. Each morning, there will be a full continental and diverse breakfast buffet, consisting of fresh locally baked baguettes, tea, coffee, eggs, cheese, marmalade, honey, Nutella, muesli, yogurt, fruits, vegetables, guacamole, humous, and more.
For lunch, for a perfect day on the beach, you can prepare yourself a sandwich and choose from a selection of fruit. It is suggested that you bring your own lunch box and refillable water bottle.
At night, you will be served a varied hot dinner accompanied by salad and homemade desserts. Once a week, there is a big barbecue and of course you have the option to book vegetarian or vegan nutrition. Any allergies will also be taken into consideration, please let Yoga Delight know if you have any.
Vieux Boucau provides a couple of popular clubbing spots. Around the lake, you can find cafes, bars, and restaurants. You can sip on a cocktail while watching the sun sets and prepare for a wild night at the Mojito bar, which is directly on the beach. During you visit, do not miss Wednesday night‘s Bluefunkt gig. Just outside the village, the "discotheque le fun" will re-open under a new name.
Table tennis, baby-foot (Foosball), slackline, indo, and skateboards are the sportive pastimes in between the sessions, but there are also movie nights, board games, books, and magazines. A cycle track which connects the whole coast runs right past the lodge, or you can go for a walk beneath the pine trees.
Around the corner, there is a skate park, tennis, basketball, volleyball courts, and a golf course, as well as the good old minigolf, and of course the classic French game of boules. In the nearby Wavetours Surfcamp, just behind the dune, you are always welcome to hang out or share punch nights or take part in flunkyball tournaments, and last but not least, do not forget to catch sight of the terrific sunsets.
During your free time, you can sign up for a surf course. A ten-hour surf course with two hours of course each day will cost you 155 EUR, while a 20-hour surf course will cost you 255 EUR, all already including the material. You can also arrange a private yoga class which will cost you 60 EUR for a 60-minute session. Alternatively, you can book French classes as well, please let Yoga Delight know for further details.
