    This was an excellent experience. I went as a single person, thinking that I would experience some social elements but would largely find myself on my own for much of it. I would have been respected for wanting to be solitary too, but the people, the yoga and the day programs were just so engaging...the atmosphere so inviting and inclusive, I just allowed myself to relax into the lovely, warm rhythm of the place, and I'm so glad I did.

    The most memorable parts of the holiday were the people we met and the fantastic planned activities. The yoga was some of the best sessions I have attended and really made the week find a pleasant rhythm. (more)Jill Martin

    Memorable parts? The unknown! Everyday was whatever we wanted it to be, because we had the freedom to bike quickly to our next destination, or stop and gaze at every landscape or building or ANYTHING we felt like doing! We discovered something new everyday. Tips? If you book it for the time frame we did (mid May) beware the mistral winds! They are more fierce at this time, as we discovered very quickly. It did not negatively affect our experience because we are athletic and love... (more)Melissa Ferrari

    We loved the stunning location and tranquillity of the area. Although the roads were a bit "white knuckle" at times the rewards of the views dotted with towns hanging from the cliff sides were amazing. A real treat for any photographer. Providing access to Nice, just over an hour away or heading further into the mountains the location provides the option of dipping into nature or culture. (more)Karen Mckiernan
    It is the best holiday we’ve had in France and that's from a perspective of over 40 years holidaying in France...The walking in the beautiful mountains in the Mercantour with snow,sun,isolation and good companions.Why did I reach 67 before finding this most beautiful place? (more)Tony Bell

    Memorable parts? A truly special experience in a little corner of the Mercantour where time seems to have stood still. We went with the flow of life at the pace of an ambling donkey. Every detail of the trip was well thought out, and the route guidance booklet (which we carried with us all the time) was spot on. The range of different landscapes we walked through surprised and delighted us. The effectiveness of the route marking was also great. The holiday providers team was hugely... (more)Carolyne Mason

    The excursions which were well thought out and very informative. So much we wouldn't have known if it wasn't for Benoit. Corrines cookery lesson was amazing too and very relaxed. (more)Brenda Muir
    By the end of the week (helped by the glorious weather) I had laughed a lot, had some hugely interesting conversations, seen some beautiful places, learnt a lot of interesting facts, made some new friends, eaten some delicious food, tried lots of new things and completely relaxed. I practically cried when I had to leave, I'd loved it so much! (more)Ali James

    The most memorable part of the holiday was that I actually relaxed.. Its not just the yoga.. its the ambiance in general. St Jeanet is not touristy at all, the hosts Benoit and Corinne are very welcoming. (more)Karen Flegg

    I particularly loved our mountain walk, with spectacular views and carpets of Pyrenean irises, and I think one of the highlights for all of us was swimming in a beautiful mountain lake. (more)Trisha Cochrane

    Memorable parts? The great organisation that appeared effortless but I'm sure reflected much planning and forethought. Every day the walks were 'just right' for the weather, our legs and our mood without us having to think about it. The food was superb, varied and appeared as if by miracle in the right amounts at the perfect time. Tips? Do what preparation you can but don't worry as there are so many walks requiring so many different levels of fitness that you will love it regardless... (more)anne webb
