The village attracts mountain lovers from all over the world but within a short drive, is also one of the most beautiful lake villages in the world, Annecy, known as the Venice of the Alps.
We will spend our week of the French Alp AdZENture exploring some of the world’s most spectacular natural and manmade masterpieces.

Intoxicating Smells to Delight
Fresh mountain air, wildflowers in the valley, fresh spring water, warm baguettes, roasted lamb and essential oils…together that would overwhelm your sense of smell but individually, these scents will be such a treat throughout the week!
Throughout the week we will experience various wellness practices including yoga, spa treatments and a few other unique activities that may be new to most adventurers.
Experience various sensations for your physical body, from immersion in a sensory deprivation tank, essential oil massage techniques to various temperature exposures due to high elevation and warm sunny days on the lake!
Many don’t know or forget about the added sense of space in additional to the ‘traditional 5’…but on this AdZENture, sense of space is a big one! Our sense of movement and position in space will be one of the most apparent or indulged senses of our experiences!
Intentional physical movement throughout every day in various forms and scattered around the southeast region of the French Alps is one of our biggest highlights!
