What we love about this venue
Daily periods of noble silence to reflect
Chateau renovated using natural, low-chemical building materials
Cuisine free from dairy, meat, fish, sugar and gluten
During the free afternoons, you can explore the village, the nearby river, and walks. However, most guests simply relax in the garden and enjoy the sounds of village life beyond the massive garden walls. Excursions to nearby places of natural beauty or historical interest, for example, is the stunning castle at Puivert or wild swimming in Lac Montbel or in the Gorge de Galamus.

THE RETREAT THAT CHANGED MY LIFE
This was a long waited trip however it was worth the wait, such an eye opening experience! When I arrived at Yobaba Lounge, I was heavy smoker with unhealthy eating habits, and most importantly lost emotionally! Gertrud listened to me in depth, took my hands, and put me on the right path. I enjoyed the silent mornings which guided me to rejoin with my inner self and think deeply of what I really want to achieve. Gertrud taught me how to dance with my breaths while practicing yoga and I loved her Ujjayi breathing techniques, which assisted in increasing the oxygen levels that I damaged by smoking! While practicing yoga, I often felt my spirit leaving my body and flying to the seventh heavens, such an amazing feeling! In addition to all the above, Gertrud is a great cook! She makes the best vegetarian dishes and cooks with love, passion, and art! She puts so much effort in choosing the best quality of healthy ingredients and the presenting them gorgeously. I enjoyed every meal she prepared for me and craving for it while writing this review. I left the five days program healthier, smoking free, determent to do what is the best for me, and attach free from toxic habits.
