About Les Fraissies

You will be staying at Les Fraisses, this is Soraya's home, a traditional Alpine building that was originally handmade from trees cut down in the surrounding forest over a century ago.

Her partner started restoring it 15 years ago with a vision of running yoga retreats here, most of her summers of the past eight years have been spent digging, plastering, painting. Many people have offered their help along the way, with replacing the roof, carpentry, tiling, buffing, sanding, digging.

It has been a labor of love and each part of the house is filled with memories of community restoration, all held by the vision and commitment of Mike. He has many stories to share, if you're interested, around the campfire.

The yoga studio was the original barn and has a beautiful rustic feel to it. This is a place of outstanding beauty on the side of a mountain, that invites you to pause just to gaze in wonder at the ever changing beauty of nature.

The building is surrounded by Alpine woodland, wild flowers and a gorge. As you walk around the perimeter, you are rewarded with views of Mont Blanc. Or, spend time gazing at the stars whilst sitting in the wood fired hot tub.
