Yoga In The Alps
From our base in Morzine, in the Portes du Soleil region of the French Alps, we comb the Alps for unique and beautiful places to host our yoga retreats. We bring you properties in inspiring locations, with spacious indoor and outdoor areas ideal for yoga practice, relaxation and rest.
Today we are doing a photoshoot in a Chalet in Morzine area, meeting Estelle, the cook & owner and showing you why we chose this Chalet specially for you.
It’s less than 15 minutes drive from Morzine to a small village called Saint Jean d’Aulps up in the mountains. Morzine area is perfect for a yoga retreat, with stunning views, walks and mountain peaks you can easily reach with a chairlift, as well as Lake Montriond where you can do yoga on a SUP, swim or just relax.
The Chalet is located at 1,000m, and sits peacefully above the traditional French farming village of Saint Jean d’Aulps; 75 min’ drive from Geneva airport.
Located in a sunny hamlet in a remote area and a quiet neighborhood (30 minutes’ walk from the main village), it faces a stunning mountain vista. Step out the front door and within a few metres you can be hiking on a forest trail that will sweep you high up into the mountains.
A beautifully renovated old school, the architecture of the chalet incorporates new wooden beams with the ancient stonework of the building. The interior is designed for relaxation: six spacious ensuite bedrooms boast newly fitted bathrooms; a unique dining hall with a wooden knights table is perfect for sociable mealtimes; comfy indoor and outdoor seating areas provide hidden areas to relax; and the ground floor hosts a secret yoga studio away from the main hub of the chalet.
The owner of the chalet and the cook, Estelle comes from a French family of foodies; her great grandmother, grandmother and mother were all very keen cooks, and her mother is also a dietitian. Estelle followed their footsteps into the kitchen and emerged with a love and passion for healthy cooking. She also took her passion to the classroom to gain a degree in nutrition. For us, food is one of the most important aspects of a yoga retreat, and we can’t wait to share with you Estelle’s delicious creations.
During this retreat, you will receive nutritionally dense, artfully prepared, plant-based food that will fuel your body and delight your senses. The chalet has a large dining room where meals will be served three times per day, either inside or on the balcony.
We are happy with the photos we’ve done today! We hope now you’ve got a clearer idea where you going to stay this summer. Can’t wait to see you here soon!
