A FRENCH FAMILY HOME
Both houses are decorated in a Provencal family style. Each furniture and piece of decoration here has its own little history!
Long before yoga was introduced in Europe this place was already a place of retreat were the bishops of Carpentras would come to rest and meditate! A monastery has recently settled as the next door neighbors which confers to the estate a deeply peaceful vibration particularly appropriated for yoga, meditation and mindful activities.
