Come to pamper your spirit at the quirky and very chilled Yobaba Lounge, a renovated 15th-19th century village chateau set in a secret garden on the edge of the Cathar village of Chalabre.
Our escape from the monotonous is right in the heart of the Languedoc Roussillon region in the very south of France, which has a fascinating history and enjoys a soothing year-round Mediterranean climate of hot summers and crisp winters. A step away from acres of vineyards stretching towards the mountains dotted with ancient castles, it’s also just 90 minutes from miles of sandy beaches.
Yobaba Lounge is the base for Joie de Vivre Retreats, rejuvenating 4 night, 5 day wellbeing breaks designed to feed your soul and soothe your body. Come for an unusual blend of yoga, meditation, holistic treatments, nutritional consultations, gourmet healthy meals, mindful enjoyment of local wines and an immersion in local history. We take no more than eight guests at a time, so you can be sure of peace and one to one attention.
The house is also available for private rental on a holiday-let basis, or for wedding, birthday or other celebrations and larger parties, as well as a location for film or photo shoots. Please email us for more information
