FRENCH RIVIERA WINE RETREAT (JUNE 9-16, 2018)
This retreat provides a the tasteful mix of yoga, wine knowledge and tasting taught by sommeliers trained in French wines. Accompanied with delicious and healthy French cuisine, this is the perfect getaway.
There will be a total of 18 hours of Yoga in total, taught by Melissa Andersen.
Melissa Andersen is a licensed Yoga Instructor with 13 years of experience. The classes will be for all levels. The morning classes will focus on a Vinyasa mix, exploring many types of practices such as Ashtanga, Hatha and Bikram styles. We will ease into the evening with restorative, yin, breath work and guided meditations. We will focus on on the depth of yoga, re-centering our minds and bodies by escaping the chaos of society with a goal to take the peace of yoga home with us in the mind, body and soul.
The house stands in Roquefort-les-Pins, a series of hamlets on the wooded slopes of the Alpes-Maritimes, high above the most famous resorts of the Riviera: Nice, Antibes and Cannes. Located in a quiet residential area but within easy reach of the shops, and the renowned restaurant of the Auberge du Colombier, it offers wheelchair access, comfort and security.
Even the closest of friends and families occasionally need space and this villa, an ingeniously developed traditional stone provencal mas, enjoys space in abundance. The ground and upper floors benefit from separate entrances on opposite sides of the house. Each has a fully equipped kitchen, supplemented by a huge, arcaded barbecue and terrace leading directly on to a substantial, fully fenced swimming pool. On ground and first floor level large lounges with UK satellite TV, Internet and DVD players, ideal for un- cooperative teenagers, lead into agreeable bedrooms, many with air conditioning and en suite facilities.
Behind electronic gates, the villa’s grounds provide parking for four cars, manicured, constantly watered lawns, table tennis, and a boules court that may be floodlit after dark.
Nice airport can be reached in 20 minutes and the fashionable beaches of the Riviera in less than half an hour. You may find, however, that energetic plans are abandoned as each day passes seamlessly by in this delightful haven away from it all.
