On this magical getaway from the hustle and bustle of daily life you will be able to rebuild the foundations of your Mother and Teen-Daughter relationship over the course of extra special bonding experiences.
Whether you have a fantastic relationship or one that faces its struggles, this retreat offers you the opportunity to redevelop your trust and understanding of one another.
You will take part in bonding workshops as well as a multitude of outdoor activities that will not only enhance your relationship but allow you to create fabulous memories together.
Join this retreat to reconnect, pamper yourselves, engage in heartfelt conversation, express your creative side and have fun together in the beautiful mountain setting of Morzine.
Each day of this retreat will offer you and your daughter something new and exciting! Find a sense of zen in your relationship as you bask in the beauty of the area and get active outdoors.
From guided mindful hikes to therapy fun walks you’ll get to enjoy Zumba dancing, yoga by lake Montriand, pool visits, tree top trekking and canyoning as a pair.
There will also be a professionally instructed Stand Up Paddle-board session, which means plenty of fun and laughter!
Mums and daughters will also get time apart to unwind and enjoy the company of those their own age. All activities are beginner friendly and optional, but you will be part of a small, friendly and intimate group where no-one gets left behind - so you may as well try something new!
On this retreat you will stay with the group in a luxurious 5 bedroomed private mountain chalet.
The chalet overlooks the beautiful village of Morzine and, whilst transport to activities will be provided, it is only a short 20 minute walk into town.
There are 3 Double rooms with private bathrooms, 2 double rooms with a shared bathroom and a wonderful hot tub and sauna to relax and unwind in. There will also be plenty of outside space for sunbathing and yoga!
Find joy and togetherness in food as each day you will dine on delectable meals expertly prepared by local Cook Ursula and her Sous Chef Samara.
Passionate about yoga, snowboarding and foraging for edible plants in the mountains, Ursula loves to create dishes from locally sourced ingredients.
Daily breakfast, lunch and three evening meals will be wholesome and delicious and are likely to include a variety of local produce such as mountain cheese and dairy. For the two remaining meals you will get to experience authentic Savoyard cuisine at local restaurants.
All soft drinks, tea/coffee and snacks will be available at all times and alcoholic beverages can be bought on site.
Just 20 minutes to the centre of Morzine on foot, the retreat will be held in a peaceful neighbourhood surrounded by the stunning landscape of the French Alps.
You will have access to nearby hiking routes, cable carts, outdoor and indoor swimming pools, tennis courts and the Nyon waterfall as well as many restaurants and shops. It is a beautiful 30-min forest walk to the Dranse de Morzine river and only a 15 minute drive to Lake Montriond.
This is the perfect location for mothers and daughters to embrace and grow their relationship whilst being immersed in the peace and tranquillity of nature.
