It’s located at the edge of the picturesque village of Yenne, a short walk away, and hiking trails are readily accessible.

The retreat meeting point of departure is the beautiful lakeside city of Aix les Bains near Annecy.

Cost: $1,599 USD. Cost is $1,279 if you register before March 31st, 2015, and $1399 USD before May 1st, 2015. (Prices dropped due to lower Euro dollar exchange rate conversion which makes it an ideal time to travel.)
