About this trip

Imagine yourself waking up to the smell of coffee and croissants in a 17th century chateau in the South of France.  The lovingly restored  grounds include a heated swimming pool, hard-surface tennis court and 100 acres of protected woodlands and trails. Castles, medieval villages and historical sites dot the surrounding countryside.  

After breakfast, effortlessly flow into your day with a vigorous vinyasa class in either a beautifully curated yoga room with exposed brick walls and beams, or outdoors on a yoga platform set into the countryside.  

Enjoy your farm-to-table meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner)   prepared by a private chef, using fresh local organic produce, and savour the chef’s heavenly creations with wines from the region’s oldest and finest wineries.  Enjoy all of your meals and coffees at  various indoor and outdoor dining areas of the chateau.

Each day, you will have plenty of free time to. lounge by the saltwater pool, hike through local vineyards, or ride a bike to a local village to explore the charming French countryside.

Join Dancing Dogs Yoga for a yoga and culinary adventure in the South of France!  Space is limited-- sign up now!

This was my first retreat, and it was out of this world! The people, the yoga, the food, the chateau, and the adventure! Every last moment was perfection, and can’t wait for the next one!

This was my second retreat with DDY retreats. A huge thank you to Shelley for a once in a lifetime adventure in France. It was an amazing time. It was obvious that everything was thoughtful and planned for an enjoyable trip. It was a week I will never forget. I got to meet new friends, eat amazing food and practice yoga in the French countryside. I seriously cannot wait until my next DDY retreat. Thank you again.

SLAM DUNK!! HOME RUN!! GOAL!!!!!! There are not enough words to describe the incredible time I had on this retreat! Not only was the facility beautiful, I met some amazing humans who are now family! Shelley went above and beyond to make sure we had what we needed, and to make this an experience we will never forget. I am so excited for the next retreat, and I am encouraging as many people as I can to reserve their spot on one of these amazing yoga retreats. I was NOT disappointed!
