Yoga Break in The Countryside

Maison Des Marronniers

Alena, yoga junkie, and Jean Victor, veggie fiend, took on the challenge of offering unique wellness experiences in a fairytale place. In the magnificent surroundings of La Maison des Marronniers, a short 35-minute drive from Paris, the two partners introduced a refreshing and unique weekend format that perfectly combines their two specialties.

Haven of Rest

Drive to Ris Orangis, 30 minutes away by RER D from Gare de Lyon. Once you arrive, you’ll be greeted by a lovely couple in their peaceful haven amidst nature, with scores of chestnut trees around.

Their brilliant concept was to create a place to relax and unwind in the great outdoors.

From traditional yoga to multi-day retreats or cooking classes, that’s the ideal place to unplug. Lush vegetation, cozy atmosphere, retro decor, large bay windows and snug rooms, the stress of the city’s already behind us.


Food & Yoga On The Menu

Our top pick? The Banquet Flâneur day (85 €), a yoga and brunch day, full-on chill.

We’ll kick things off with a 30-minute yoga session focused on deep tissues.

Then a super relaxing sound journey to release body tension, reduce anxiety and maximize comfort.

Next stop: the spectacular brunch by Jean Victor. Veggie-obsessed, this chef makes the most amazing vegetarian dishes. Minty panna cotta, miso-roasted whole cabbage, Sicilian salad revisited with citrus fruits, chard and pine nuts with sake...

His anti-inflammatory recipes are made with seasonal local products and will do your body gooood. You'll feel as though you just took a quick trip away from the hustle and bustle of the city, with your batteries fully recharged.

Le Banquet Flâneur, next sessions will be held on June 2, July 15 and 31 from 10:30 am to 2pm (85 €)
