    In order to take you to that raw and wild forest and to make you enjoy the benefits of the trees and the colour green, LOIRE VALLEY LODGES has the tremendous pleasure and honour to offer you the best forest ambassadors, great professionals that are generous and benevolent and know how to communicate with nature as well as with humans. Whether they breath it, sing it, touch it, invent it, they will all take you to your own rhythm to a complete disconnection, letting go and re-discover your senses and reconnect with your inner-self.


Let the forest

Take you in

The simple fact to be in nature, in a raw forest, alive, whether it’s plane forest, deep forest, in the heights of the forest or in the wide forest… with all its senses awaken, it fulfils you with a deep well-being. Walk slowly, take the time to take the time, let yourself be guided by the sound of a bird, be carried by the wind, look at the ballet of leaves above your head. Re-discover you have a skin, a body, a heart… that work out in perfect harmony with this green, benevolent universe from where we all come from. It is calming, southing, revitalizing. Walk to go somewhere or nowhere… it doesn’t matter in the end. This moment is yours. Let the forest come to you and guide you. Sniff the smells, the energies, the different temperatures, textures, touch the trunk of a tree, the green moss or the soil. Smell it, breath it, feel that overwhelming wave of emotions coming from your inner-self rise in you, they belong to you only, to your life, it is truly here. Find your verticality inside you, rising like a tree to the sky, to the light. Feel that heat inside you. It is your light, the life inside you that only asks to be lived. In harmony with you. A forest bath to make
you feel alive, simply.
