Responsible tourism: Yoga and nature retreat in France

Environment

Being in a “green and rural” zone in France we will eat produce locally that is grown. Some is sourced organically and all is very local, very fresh and excellent quality.

Building – The owners of the La Bastide d’Avellanne have conserved this 17th century charming fortified Provencal demure and by doing so are part of preserving the cultural heritage of the area. The Bastide is set in 3 hectares of a private park in the heart of Provence, Cote d‘Azur. The owners have acquired this marvelous Bastide of the 1600’s in 2010, have restored and transformed it into a luxurious bed and breakfast with suites, apartments and a small restaurant. The Bastide still retains its unique charm and historical beauty. The attention to detail and the search for harmony meets once again where the nature is still unspoilt, between the sea and the mountains.

Water – Provence is a region in France that usually experiences low rainfall so we realize how important conserving water is, during our yoga and nature retreat we will ask clients if they want items laundered before simply washing towels and linens unnecessarily in order to conserve water.

Community

Experiencing the life of the local community is something we cherish. We will be visiting local markets and tour the countryside. We encourage guests to explore & immerse themselves into the local way of life.

Friends and neighbors - local employment is something we are very happy to promote - during our France Yoga and Nature retreat, we employ locals as tour guides, drivers, housekeepers, cooks, and therapists since we believe they are the real colors of the place, interacting with locals we believe is a genuine way to experience and learn about a new culture.

Local crafts and culture – one of the interesting parts of a culture is experiencing its flavor and food – we enjoy the traditional flavors of Provence combined with creativity and special attention to creating balanced meals, as we are convinced that the right food will influence our lifestyle. Wholesome ingredients, freshness of food, cooking times and methods are present in every meal you will enjoy. We will also have a special local cheese and wine tasting.

We will visit protected conservation areas such as Gorges du Verdon and Porquerolles Island in the French Riviera. We have carefully chosen our venue for this retreat run by friendly warm locals and their passion for what they do can be felt in the way they treat their guests. La Bastide d’Avellanne is set in 3 hectares of a private park in the heart of Provence, Cote d‘Azur, secluded yet within easy access to pretty villages where we can experience the market, daily life and the warmth of the locals.
