Retreat location

This relaxing and inspiring yoga retreat will take place at the Château du Fraissinet, a beautiful country house on the edge of the stunning Cévennes National Park in the south of France. It is in the Gard department of Occitanie, the Midi, and enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year.

The Château du Fraissinet is set in six acres of beautiful grounds with a river running alongside. There is an outdoor swimming pool cleaned with UVC light, which is kind to eyes and skin, and a relaxing spa pool. Guests are also welcome to use the sauna. Two gentle donkeys, Daisy and Lily, help out with mowing the lawn and are always delighted to make friends with visitors, especially if they bring carrots.
