Location

This retreat will take place in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France. Stunning stone and the wooden chalet in the picturesque haut village of Villard Reculas, this is an ancient village where time has been preserved in the twists of the timbers that support the tumbling tiles and wood piled high beside the cowshed door and yet you can potter up the road and with one ski-lift.

It is located in the heart of one of Europe’s favorite ski areas, Alpe D’Huez. Pumping pistes and a rock and roll aprés ski make this an area that offers both peace and passion for the ultimate ski-yoga getaway.
