Retreat Yourself in Europe's California!

Get right away from it all and give your brain and body a chance to catch up...

Our good friends and partners at Bay Fitness run an annual Reboot Retreat near Hossegor in May and September - a blissful week that's expertly organised to make sure you can 'get away from it all' and spend some quality time exercising, enjoying delicious & nourishing food and living the dream with like-minded people in Europe's California.

Organised and run by Andrew Blake, a fitness, coaching, massage therapy and yoga extraordinaire who has worked with Olympic athletes, international sports teams and the world's best surfers, you can be sure you are in good hands - whatever your fitness goals and interests, Andrew will ensure you get the most out of your week, and have fun too - this is a holiday after all!

The Bay Fitness ethos really resonates with us; here in the Alternative Aquitaine office we're all keen (but amateur) runners, yoga enthusiasts, and (part-time) healthy food advocates! The Bay Fitness retreats give you the chance to rejuvenate, regenerate, re-energise, relax, and re-everything else that's good for you. Under the expert care and guidance of Andrew and his team, you can enjoy daily Vinyasa Flow yoga classes, massage, daily homemade juices, personal training, SUP yoga, surf lessons and beach days, hiking trips and delicious meals - it sounds absolutely heavenly to us!

We've worked with Andrew for a number of years now, and the 2018 retreats look set to be bigger and better than ever - this year they will be based at Le Vignau, one of the most popular villas in our collection; ultra-modern with outstanding architecture and interior design. The swimming pool and outdoor spaces are just stunning - perfect for socialising or finding a quiet spot for some 'me time', and it's just 12km to the buzz and waves of Hossegor! It really is the perfect destination to enjoy the California lifestyle a little closer to home, with glassy lakes that are just perfect for SUP yoga, endless bike trails, huge stretches of sandy beaches and world-class waves for surfing - the vibe around Hossegor is just so cool!


We're delighted to be working with Andrew and his team again this year - the retreats are always really popular and spaces for 2017 are filling up fast! If it sounds like just what you need, book your place now ...
