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.

The Dominican Tree House Village was a unique experience. Our trip was full of activities and good times, I would definitely consider doing this again.

For my first trip to the Dominican Republic, it was good to learn how the people really live. The DDY staff and travellers were great. The yoga was great. The jungle vegetation and beaches are beautiful. Jumping off the boat and swimming in the ocean was the most fun. For my comfort, daytime "jungle" excursions would be enough. We were "too close" to nature at night( snakes, tarantulas,frogs, dampness and rodents in the treehouses).The amenities of a traditional resort, that would enable adequate nighttime rest and restoration is preferred.

PARADISE!! This was my first time traveling to the Dominican Republic. Being at the Dominican Tree House Village was a new experience as well. The sounds of nature and gentle rain showers were relaxing. The excursions were fun and the food delicious. The yoga and meditation experiences were so healing and much needed. I met some amazing people and DDY Travels made sure I had everything I needed including travel information. I’m so excited to participate in the next yoga retreat!!

One of the most unique experiences I’ve ever been on! The treehouse village is like something from a story book and this was such a cool and fun experience. I went into the retreat without any expectations or prior research and Shelley knocked it out of the park. DDY did not disappoint. I was absolutely blown away by the location, the excursions, the planning, and the experience. I loved everything from the zip lining, to the waterfall excursion, the ATVs and the catamaran tour. The yoga was so incredible. I tried new styles of yoga I never had before. The cocoa ceremony at the beginning was such a great way to start us off. Everyone was so kind and so great to hang out with. I will absolutely be back and 100% will be going on more DDY retreats!
