Just 45 minutes drive from Nice Cote d'Azur airport le Foulon is a haven of tranquility, set in 14 acres of river-fronted garden.
The space for practising yoga indoors is perfect for up to 18 students and one teacher (11 metres x 6 metres). It is bathed in sunshine for most of the year with south-west facing windows and overlooks nothing but coutryside, forest and a river that meanders down to the Mediterranean. We have good quality yoga mats, blocks and straps for 20 people.
All our cleaning products are green, we recycle and encourage everyone visiting le foulon to do the same. We care passionately about the environment and have a notice in each bathroom explaining how we do our small part in turning the tide on single-use plastics. We hope by raising awareness and questioning everyday practises everyone can pull together and make the world a greener place.
The Domaine du Foulon is your ideal retreat venue - 700 square metres of building, with 13 bedrooms and an ability to sleep up to 23 people with no one sharing a bed. A convenient mix of twin bedrooms and doubles to meet your guests different needs, and most rooms have a modern en suite bathroom to themselves. A sucessful retreat starts with a great nights sleep.
Guest comfort is also ensured in all the living space - the large high ceilinged lounge is a great social meeting place and our relaxed atmosphere helps bring people together. Outside of the summer months a huge roaring fire makes a large space feel cosy, and downstairs is a large double height conservatory and adjoining English language library, where people can hide themselves away and read a book or simply contemplate.
Outside is an 11m swimming pool (heated) that is great for practising yoga in the sun, with a large practical flat deck - just push the sunbeds to one end and you have lots of space. The views are quite beautiful and the serenity absolute. Or you can get back to nature and practise yoga anywehere you like in 14 acres of river-fronted garden. There's a large flat field that's an abondance of wildflowers, but we keep a tenis court sized flat area mowed al year round, and at the back you can hear the river trickling by.
