Accommodation

RainbowLight Yoga Retreat offers the tranquillity of the French countryside and the charm and luxury of a former 17th century relais chasse with spacious dorm rooms or quad rooms (only three or four in each room) and also offers double and single rooms. Each retreat or yoga teacher training accommodates a maximum of 12 participants, so you can be assured that you will get time and attention.

Step into a romantic time enjoying the ambiance that is created by retaining the much of the building's original features like period fireplaces, claw foot bath tubs, column barge walls, and terracotta tiles. The property sits on 10 acres of its own land, surrounded by an organic farmland and views of undulating low sweeping hills. Enjoy walking the wild meadow garden or take a stroll down to the lake reservoir.

Guests gather at the grand reception room for meals across the way from a dedicated yoga hall. Enjoy all the outside garden space for meditation, contemplation and some outdoor yoga in the late spring, summer, and early fall. One of the barns has also been converted to a fun yoga chill out room.
