FRESH & FABULOUS MOUNTAIN RETREAT

Thursday 27 April to Sunday 30 April

CHALET UXELLO, LES GETS, IN THE FRENCH ALPS

Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship. Gautama Buddha

When we cleanse ourselves in mind and body, we allow the blockages in our energy field to melt away. What we are left with is the clear channel that connects us to our own flow
of creative energy. From this place, our dreams, aspirations and life purpose become clearer and we are energised and excited about following our bliss.

Les Gets is a beautiful small town nestled in the majestic French Alps. The air is clean and fresh, the scenery is breath-taking and the mountain-view from the chalet is stunning.

The Chalet

Chalet Uxello is a traditional “Haute Savoie” Alpine chalet in the beautiful village of Les Gets in the French Alps. The views from the balconies and picture windows of the mountains are truly awe inspiring. The chalet is airy yet warm with a toasty roaring fire if we need it and balconies and a lovely garden for sun bathing when the sun comes out. It is very spacious and light and most of the rooms have ensuite facilities.
How to get there

The easiest way is to fly to Geneva from any of the London airports (and indeed other airports in the UK). The takes just over an hour and then to get a transfer at the airport (approx 40 euros) to the chalet. Flights from London are around £50 at the moment.
Driving is possible, though we recommend taking it easy and have some time off!! It takes around 9 hours from the ferry port of Dieppe.

What to bring

Sun cream
Walking boots and rain coat/hat
Notebook and pen
An inspiring piece of writing or quote to share
Yoga mat if you have one and a towel and loose fitting clothes
One set of light clothing you don’t mind getting oily

Testimonials

“I’m definitely keeping it up – had hot lemon Juice and now juicing my lunch – Feel great, lost 3lbs thoroughly love every minute and want to do one every six months. A magnificently relaxing and superbly orchestrated three days. It exceeded all my expectations and I recommend it to EVERYONE”… xxxx

“Sephie’s food is amazing – raw food is a real eye opener and way tastier than I ever imagined possible-yum”
“I expected a Juice only weekend to be a struggle, I could not have been more wrong. Julie’s gentle and knowledgeable guidance, the simple pleasures of making juices together with a wonderful group of new friends, scenic walks and relaxing meditation were like walking into welcoming arms rather than the jarring kick start I had expected. I fell under the spell of this new way of life and cannot wait to return”

“I was feeling very sluggish and down before my first juicing retreat..In fact, so vacant that I didn’t really know what I had signed up for. After the retreat I was a changed woman. I had a spring in my step and was really inspired to take on new projects and have loads more fun”
