Want to disconnect? Pack your backpack for a 6 day and 5 night stay in the heart of the Haut Verdon mountains and the Mercantour National Park. On the programme: hiking, fresh air, calm and letting go.
Every day A new journey
Why be satisfied with just one trip when Retrouvance offers you 6!
At each stage, discover new landscapes, taste new atmospheres. Sparkling lakes, crystalline springs, secret forests, mountain pastures or summits at an altitude of over 3000m are just a few of the natural wonders that await you. And every evening, the wonder will be total, when the stars will be adorned with their most beautiful lights.
Embark on the Retrouvance Adventure for a 100% natural holiday, full of common sense. Follow the guide who will take you off the beaten track, far from the busy mountains.
Choose a relaxing and disconnected option (the phone doesn’t work!) in one of the most beautiful natural sites in France: the Mercantour National Park. You don’t need to travel across the planet to live a unique experience. And don’t be surprised if you come across wildlife along the way.
Thanks to our all-inclusive, full-board formula, the accompaniment and logistics are taken care of. So relax, your only concern is to enjoy your Retrouvance experience!
Stay in an unusual accommodation. Former forestry lodges formerly used for reforestation work in the mountains, you will be privileged guests, as our lodges are exclusively reserved for our Retrouvance clientele.
