The yoga, bike & surf retreat at La Foret d'Armotte is all about having an active and fun holiday with like-minded singles, couples & groups in a luxury setting. We believe that you should be able to enjoy and pamper yourself even when wanting to take a healthy break and improving your yoga and surfing skills. This is why we not only offer yoga, surfing & biking but also bespoke activities & services that complement this such as wine tasting sessions, trips to local Chateaux plus private chefs and masseuses that come to your villa. In addition the villas themselves are very well appointed and the 4 bedrooms come with 4 bathrooms plus a heated pool and Jacuzzi for each villa.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The villas are located in the village of Saint-Augustin in Charente Maritime which is about 4km from Saint Palais Sur Mer and 8km from Royan. They are on the edge of a large Forest that backs backs onto the sea (3km away) and the residence itself has onsite sports facilities that include tennis, petanque, volleyball, badminton, table tennis and football. As part of the package we offer a concierge service so we can arrange services and activities for you and book you in for golf (there are two courses within a 10 min drive), sailing, horse-riding or whatever else takes your fancy. We have a daily schedule which involves yoga classes and surf lessons and we encourage our guests to also take part in the forest and beach bike rides to the activity locations. We provide healthy breakfast, lunch & dinner meals and our chef creates excellent dishes from local produce and can cater to most dietary requirements. Wine is also served for the evening meals as we believe you deserve a little reward to celebrate your achievements during the day.

8pm DINNER

 

 

 

Meals are included (breakfast, lunch & dinner) and are prepared by our in-house chef at one of the villas. All dietary requirements can be catered for (vegetarian, vegan, non-dairy, gluten-free etc) but should be indicated in advance. The chef will prepare unique dishes using natural ingredients from the region and complimentary wine will be provided during evening meals.

 

 

The bike rides each last approximately 30mins and will take you on varying routes through beautiful scenery to a particular natural yoga location. If the weather is ever bad then classes will be in the local village hall.

 

One afternoon in the week will be dedicated to wine tasting at a local vineyard instead of yoga for those that wish to participate. None of the activities are of course compulsory so if you prefer to take it easy one day and just go sightseeing or do another activity or even just lay by the pool then this is not a problem.
