Experience the joy of winter.
Our retreats in the peaceful and inspiring French Alps create breathing space for busy minds. They enable you to step back, take stock and get clear on what really matters to you.
Alps Retreats founder Sally-Anne Airey shares more than 35 years’ experience as a leadership coach, mindfulness teacher and former Royal Navy Commander to help people develop clarity, resilience and presence. Her calm, pragmatic, accessible approach enables you to make the changes you want in your life and work.
In the beautifully serene surroundings of Alps Retreats, you take time out from the stressors of everyday life to pause, reflect and recalibrate. You gain clarity to meet the challenges you are facing. New ideas and creative solutions emerge. You leave relaxed and re-energised, with strategies and tools to apply in your everyday life.
Here’s Sally-Anne giving you an example of one of the tools you learn on our retreats, recorded by our friends and partners at Yoga in the Alps (12 minutes):
We offer scheduled and tailor-made retreats all year round to individuals, teams and groups looking for a safe space to work, play and learn. For leaders, we also offer longer-term leadership development programmes through our companion site skilfulleaders.com.
Our holistic approach nurtures mind, body and soul with an expertly-designed balance of focused workshops, outdoor activity in stunning scenery, one-to-one coaching, mindfulness meditation and delicious vegetarian food.
And there’s time to enjoy a soothing massage or simply to relax and unwind in our luxury hot tub.

The warm and open living area fuses traditional Alpine charm and contemporary design. There’s plenty of cosy seating, a large woodburner and a spacious, sociable dining area leading out into the garden. The super comfortable bedrooms all have private bathrooms with rain-effect showers and underfloor heating.
