Château du Fraissinet is a pretty country house which has been nestling in its beautiful valley for at least four centuries. It is mentioned in the annals of 1640 as a fortified farm presided over by a Seigneur. Situated on the edge of the wild, mountainous Cevennes National Park and bordered by the river Gardon, the stunning six-acre grounds have lots of quiet corners to explore. Read in the shade of the hundred-year-old chestnut and plane trees, salute the sun on the yoga terrace, or take a cushion to the river bank and meditate on the myriad tiny fishes and the play of sunlight on the water.

This is real countryside and light pollution is minimal. When night falls, you will love star-gazing and planet-spotting and often, on a clear night, will see the Milky Way. Yoga classes take place on the yoga terrace with views of trees and rivers or in the dedicated yoga studio with lots of natural light. You enjoy cooling off in the 11m x 5m pool, fed by spring water from the source and cleaned by UVC light to keep chemicals and chlorine to an absolute minimum.

You can choose either a twin-bed room or a single with shower and WC shared between two or three people. A superior single with ensuite shower and WC is also available. Couples may prefer to rent an apartment and be completely self-contained. There are chairs and tables outside on the terraces so you can enjoy an evening glass of wine surrounded by trees and birds. And if you need to keep in touch with the outside world, there are plenty of Wi-Fi hotspots to tap into.

  • Pool with sunbeds
  • River for paddling and wild swimming
  • Sauna and hammam
  • Table tennis
  • Beautiful grounds to explore
  • Donkeys and two friendly dogs
  • ​Starry skies and some of the cleanest air in Europe

Program

You can expect mindful yoga and relaxation that increases your confidence and gives you the space to reflect and to be yourself. ​Other activities at this stunning venue include hiking in the hills, swimming in the pool, meditating by the river, kayaking on the river Cèze, paddle-boarding on the local lake, visiting the nearby market, or chilling in the shade of the ancient plane trees. The retreat is about you so everything is optional. Simply choose from the activities on offer to create a mix that leaves you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to get the most out of every single day.

The theme for 2021 is 'space for you'.

  • Postures and mediation to develop self-awareness and create space in your lives to nurture yourselves
  • Asana practice to find space in your bodies and make progress on your yoga journey
  • Meditation and mindfulness to stop the chattering in our heads and find space between your thoughts
  • Relaxation to enable you to unwind and let go

A yoga retreat at the Château du Fraissinet gives you a place away from the world where you can be yourself, find your own rhythm, and grow into who you really are. In this green jewel surrounded by mountains with its pool, river, and friendly animals, you can relax and grow in the company of like-minded yogi friends. You leave feeling energized, balanced, and complete.
