Yoga at the Moulin de la Plaine

  • Stay at a beautiful water mill property on the river with a swimming pool, tennis court, and space for yoga in an old mill building, as well as on the lovely grounds by the banks of the river
  • Enjoy farm-to-table home cooked regional fare -- as well as a welcome wine & cheese soirée, breakfasts at the mill house, picnic lunches and bistro lunches, plus a final farewell dinner at a renowned local restaurant.  All meals included.
  • Daily morning and evening yoga sessions with our amazing yoga instructor from San Francisco, California, the wonderful Patricia Diart
  • Activities such as visits to village cave houses, castles, churches, and magnificent gardens will be balanced by free time to hike, bike or simply relax and relish the experience.

Instructor Patricia Diart in our yoga space at the Moulin de la Plaine

"Would return to yoga at the Moulin de la Plaine. Host Martial was especially welcoming. Kate arranged an interesting agenda of meals and activities. I attended primarily for yoga. Patricia, kept the yoga at a level and length enjoyable to all."

"Trôo was a very pleasant surprise discovery for me. It must be one of the most beautiful villages in France, with its lush greeneries and varieties of flowering plants. It is also unique in its elegantly-appointed cave dwellings occupied by a large artist community."

"Beautiful and peaceful setting. Meeting and dining with the locals was an added bonus to the trip."

"Small group hosted by a guide who is a part of the community gave a unique opportunity to enjoy and savor lifestyle of Troo “cave” village. Able to visit and break bread with hosts in their homes, visit nearby local treasures and enjoy art, galleries, Château, views. Something for everybody."

Testimonials from May 2019 Holiday

"The yoga level was at the right level for the participants energy, body clock and the local environment. The itinerary and daily activities were thoughtfully curated and unique. We enjoyed nature, caves, homes, chateaux, food, wine, cheese, local hospitality. Being non meat-eaters, Kate ensured we enjoyed delicious food throughout the week. We had vegetarian and seafood options. There was enough time between activities for individual needs & energy level (eg. some would like some pool, nap or personal time). Kate & Patricia (Plein Air Holidays) really made sure everything was taken care - yoga props, transportation, meals, local knowledge & regional experience activities."

"Very pleasant balance of yoga, local sightseeing & local eating throughout the week. Perfect amount of activities."
