    Our Retreats
    How to Find Us
    • You can expect time and space to reflect; engaging conversations that inspire you to see things differently; mountain landscapes that shift your perspective; mindfulness meditation, guided hikes, top-quality food; super comfortable accommodation; and a peaceful night’s sleep.

    • Your day normally starts with a guided meditation or mindful movement. Mornings and afternoons are adapted to your needs and might include a mix of group learning / team work, individual coaching, time out in nature, reflection and journaling. There’s usually a full-day hike and sometimes a night out in a mountain refuge. A full-body therapeutic massage is also an option.

    • For you to get the most out of your retreat, we encourage you to unplug. We also recognise that you may want to stay in touch with work and/or family and we schedule an hour for this each evening before dinner. We have free wi-fi available.

    • All our retreats are in one, sometimes two (adjacent) luxury chalets in a beautiful French Alpine village. Both chalets are old farmhouses that have been lovingly renovated to combine traditional Alpine character with contemporary design. There are spacious working and relaxation areas indoors and out, comfortable ensuite bedrooms, and a large hot tub in the grounds of both chalets.

    • A key element of your stay is the delicious, nutritious food prepared by our professional chef. Ingredients are fresh and wherever possible organic and locally sourced. If you have specific dietary restrictions or preferences, we build these into the menu. A wide range of hot and cold drinks is available at any time.

    • The retreat centre is 75 minutes from Geneva by road. If you travel to Geneva by plane or train, we meet you there and drive you the rest of the way. If you want to self-drive, we have private off-road parking for up to 5 vehicles.

    • How to sustain learning is a strong theme of all our retreats. It starts with the conversation you have with Sally-Anne before you arrive and leads into the range of practical tools and techniques you can use from the moment you get home. Some retreats also include a follow-up conversation with Sally-Anne a few weeks after you leave.

    • You need an average fitness level but not necessarily any previous experience of Alpine activities (with the exception of skiing). Our day hikes are led by an experienced guide, who is there to keep you safe and well. We provide a packing list for every season – which always includes suitable footwear and layered outdoor clothing.

      For our Mindful Skiing retreat, you should be a competent skier or snowboarder, comfortable on red pistes.

    • Geneva is the closest airport and is well served by flights from all over Europe.

    • Our nearest train station is Cluses, 40 minutes by road. There are direct trains there from Geneva and Bellegarde, which are connected to Paris by high-speed TGV.

    • We are in the French Alpine village of Sixt Fer à Cheval, in Haute-Savoie, 75 minutes by road from Geneva.

      We are very accurately marked on Google maps.

      We have off-road parking on our property for up to 5 vehicles.
