Wellness Retreat in the French Alps

Experience this idyllic getaway on the shores of Lake Annecy in France.
A once-in-a-lifetime stay in a luxurious historical hotel, and
stunning views of the French Alps will make this adventure unforgettable.

The Alpine Lifestyle

When it comes to healthy and stress-free living, Europe is a leader in every category – from medicinal, curative and therapeutic remedies to the scientific development of products utilizing natural ingredients. Alpin Luxe is excited to introduce you to their Alpine Lifestyle. This week of immersion in the European culture of wellness and peaceful living will refresh your appreciation for life, and your connection to the natural world, long after you've returned home.

The Magic of The Alps

Talloires is a beautiful and charming village on the shores of Lake Annecy with magnificent views of the French Alps. Known for its gastronomy and outdoor activities, it makes the perfect location to embark on a healthier lifestyle. It’s no wonder Napoleon, Mark Twain and Bruce Willis all fell in love with Annecy's crystal blue shores. Known as the “Venice of the Alps”, the waterways of Annecy were built by the Romans in the 15th century.

Your Wellness Guides

Hosted by Health and Fitness Experts, Jeff & Toni Olson, your week in France will forever shape the way you look at holistic wellness. Their professional mission is to help you inspire and activate healthy living. With over twenty years' experience, this dynamic duo will guide you into deeper level beliefs on the core principles of healthy living. The Olsons cut through modern health hype and myths so you can leverage what truly works for enduring health and vitality.

A Little Corner of History

Our home for the week, L’Abbaye de Talloires, nestled in a magical bay on Lake Annecy is one of the most breathtaking, historical residences in Europe. In 2018, L’Abbaye celebrated 1000 years of existence from its humble beginning as a small monastery. With a serene atmosphere, stunning lake & mountain views, gourmet restaurant, historical wine cellar and more, L’Abbaye is the only hotel in France to be twice named 4-Star/5-Star Hotel Customers Trophy Award for quality of service.

Nourish and Savor

Nutrition is a vital part of our mental and physical wellbeing. Guided by Jeff and Toni, as well as the Gourmet Chefs at L'Abbaye, you will learn to appreciate not only the superior flavor of fresh, farm-to-table food, but also the powerful effects that a healthy diet can have on your quality of life – physically, mentally, and emotionally. You'll learn nutrition principles to take home with you which allow you to unlock the power of the Alpine Lifestyle in your daily life, and appreciate every bite you put in your mouth!

Discover Your Adventure

Every day is a "choose your own adventure" during your stay in Annecy, the jewel of the French Alps. Jeff and Toni will incorporate health and wellness instruction into each day, and you'll fill the time from sunrise to sunset with your choice of activity and relaxation. From water sports like paddleboarding and boating on the crystalline lake, to adventure hikes in the forest, to touring ancient castles. Then, end each day on the beach in the sunset, or sipping wine on a secluded garden terrace.

Solitude and space to escape the hectic schedule of daily life. The turquoise waters of Lake Annecy and the quiet town of Talloires are the perfect place to reset your priorities and focus on YOU for a change.

The warm and inviting décor of L'Abbaye de Talloires hearkens back to its ancient monasterial legacy. Immerse yourself in history as you relax in luxury.
