    In the pre-alps of French Riviera/Côte d'Azur, on a large 80 ha property made of mountains, forests, fields and streams, nested in a lovely valley, we are creating a sustainable international community to support the creation and development of a NPO and its home, dedicated to personal development and growth, parenting and relationships, as well as yoga, meditation and wellness in general.

    While we get the staff condo up and running,
    In warm season, you will enjoy the pleasures of the gorgeous glamping site with its 20m² tents and lovely bathroom trailers - see photos.
    In cold season, you will share in-house fully-renovated 15 m² bedrooms with their own en-suite shower room and toilet (separated from each others). The room has a lovely view to nature, with terrace. Nice and warm feeling thanks underfloor heating.
    Meals will be taken in outdoor covered dining area with pro kitchen and BBQ.
    Out of fire-risk season you will also enjoy singing-along, music and grill by the super-large fire pit.

    What else ...

    Lots to do around from almost every kind of outdoor sports (hikes and bikes, paragliding, climbing - including on the property - canyoning, via ferrata, acrobranching, kayaking...) to local countryside village sightseeing, and of course all French Riviera famous towns like Cannes, Nice, Monaco, St Paul de Vence...
    Train station Puget-Theniers to Nice is 8 kms away. We can bring/take you there few times a week, and hitchhiking is easy in this countryside villages area. A car is a plus for your autonomy - possible to rent cheap one at the local grocery store.
