The Town :
Beaune is the wine capital of Burgundy. It is an ancient town on a plain by the hills of the Côte d'Or, with features remaining from the pre-Roman and Roman eras, through the medieval and renaissance periods. The central "old town" or "vieille ville" is extensive. Beaune, located about 300km from Paris, is accessible by train.
opening ceremony :
Les Hospices De Beaune
A gorgeous & iconic hospital foundation from the Middle Ages, the Hospices de Beaune is one of France’s most prestigious historic monuments. Its flamboyant Gothic architecture, its polychrome roofs and a renowned vineyard make this museum one of Burgundy’s gems. The Hospices de Beaune is also famous for its 60 hectares wine estate, producing prestigious wines, sold at auction on the third Sunday in November.
The Venue :
Chapelle Saint Etiennee
This place, which today serves as an exhibition hall, is the former Carmelite chapel. The layout reveals French gardens and lush cascades of flowers, signs that evoke the coming to Beaune of the Sun King in 1658.
The Farm :
Les Loups Bio
We will be eating from this incredible organic vegetable garden during our retreat. A portion of proceeds from the retreat will be donated back the farm to preserve a way of life where (wo)man and nature live in harmony and balance. The philosophy of Les Loups Bio is to follow nature, follow the seasons and to give back to the earth what we took from her. Food is medicine and supporting farmers who are walking the talk is so important!
