October 1-7, 2023
DAILY YOGA | LOCAL CUISINE | NATURE | WINE
what to expect.
Upon arrival you will be greeted with smell the fresh mountain air, breath taking scenery set in a quaint village in the heart of the french alps. What I hope you take away from this week is complete relaxation and regeneration. I want this retreat to fill your mind and soul (and belly) with peace and nourishment. Yoga, local food, nature and wine.
Chalet Savoie faire
Savoie Faire is the brainchild of Nikki Shields Quinn and her husband, Hugh. With more than 30 years experience of cooking, entertaining and managing properties, Nikki and Hugh have transformed an abandoned barn in the beautiful village of Fontaines Naves, into a stunning luxury mountain lodge and cookery school.
Nikki and Hugh will welcome you into their home and introduce you to life in the Tarantaise. Fontaines Naves is a picturesque mountain village, with stunning views across the valley.
Hi ! My name is Liseanne and I have been teaching and running retreats for the last 7 years, I have also been a registered RMT for 18 and soon to be a registered life coach. With all my experience one thing I have found over the years is that we all need to tune into our desires, what it is that we really want. Our busy lives often have an obligation to be there for others, managing this and that. but when do we tune in to what it is that makes us feel nurtured and fulfilled?
Thats why my main focus is giving you space to soften feel, be totally nurtured and meet you where you are. To sooth your soul with a practice that reconnects you with your intuition, that inner light and guidance. To give you a place that has everything done for you in the most luxurious way so you can rest, reconnect and ignite that light within you.
Nikki and Hugh ensure the warmest welcome and once you’ve experienced the delights of this luxury mountain property you’ll want to return time and time again. Special attention has been paid to the beds as a good night’s sleep after a day on the mountain is essential. All beds are made up with quality bed linen, 100% woollen bed toppers, feather quilts, as many pillows as you want and luxurious L’Occitane products.
Renowned for its excellent gastronomic products and famous culinary specialities, its a place for the eyes to see and the taste buds to experience.
This luxury alpine retreat also encompasses a bespoke cookery school and the possibility to improve your culinary skills with Nikki and benefit from her 30 years experience in France. A cooking class with Nikki is included in your retreat! All meals are vegetarian, any dietary restrictions or needs are no problem, just let us know when booking.
Focusing on relaxation, our daily yoga is curated to meet the group where they are physically and mentally . A combination of Yin and Vinyasa in the mornings and Restorative in the evenings, will give you the perfect balance of movement and mindfulness. No experience required but long time yogis will be satiated as well.
"Liseanne puts her heart into everything she does. She has a talent for creating the most unique, genuine and just good for the soul experiences for people that leave you feeling lighter and lifted. She is someone I’ll keep in my pocket throughout life and follow whatever she does. I recommend her to anyone and everyone"
"What a wonderful yoga retreat! It was an amazing opportunity to attend a weekend away to reflect, refocus and pamper my tired and overactive mental state. I truly enjoyed the Restorative and Yinyasa yoga as well as the quiet, eloquent and peaceful resort. My experience went even beyond my expectations"
"Just what I needed to recharge and regroup after a long winter. It was just the right amount of movement, breath, rest and restore. Liseannes classes brought me back to my old self and what a beautiful place to practice. The food was amazing, the scenery was breathtaking and the staff really took the time and care to meet the needs of each guest."
