A healthy weekend of exercise, yoga, guided mountain walks, delicious food and pampering... The Villars 2.0 left me refreshed, relaxed and already looking forward to 3.0 next year.

Un magnifique moment de découvertes et de rencontres lors de cette fin de semaine en made "retreat detox"

Merci Victoire pour l'organisation et je repars conquise de mon "Take the Time" 

-Sandrine / Annecy '22

Nature, beauty, deep nourishment, laughter and women supporting women are a few of the many benefits that resonate within as this beautiful Villars 2022 retreat comes to an end. You did it again Victoire, BRAVO and a heartfelt thank you for all that you do to makes these retreats just what I need every time!

-Vanessa / Villars '22

 Tout est parfait! Le lieu très chouette et les participantes inégalables. J'ai beaucoup aimé le côté multi activités que tu as proposé.

J'ai trouvé également très sympa le dej sur la plage organisé le dimanche. 

- Cecile / Comporta '22


Thank you for this wonderful and magical time in Villars. It was a meticulously organised 3 days full of adventures and new discoveries. Absolutely loved the the yoga lesson with the gorgeous views of Villars as well as all of our culinary experiences in the Hotel du Lac and other local restaurants. Last but not least, I found myself in the company of wonderful women that made this weekend even more amazing and enjoyable. I am glad that I have made the time to get away and huge thank you to Victoire and ‘Take the Time’ who took care of everything to make it extremely fun and unforgettable.

- Renata / Villars '22

Thanks a million Victoire for everything - it was beautiful! Your relaxed but super thoughtful approach, sense of details and  amazing organization. I’ll join June 2022.  Thank you Cyril for pushing me to do super hard workouts and Olivia for the most awesome relaxing yoga and the hardest yoga ever!!! And thank you all beautiful ladies who joined and with your energies, share and laughter made my Swiss retreat just PERFECT, fun and relaxing! Thank you!

C’est ma troisième retraite Take the Time et je suis toujours aussi satisfaite. En  seulement deux jours, j’ai pu me détendre, me ressourcer et déconnecter. Les bienfaits de nouvelles pratiques, tel que le Qi Gong.

Merci à Victoire pour cette organisation et l'accueil impeccable. Je me réjouis déjà de la prochaine.

- Huda / Annecy '22

Thank you all of you for such a completely wonderful weekend! Victoire you were made for this, I hope you realise what a HUGE success this weekend was, thanks to your incredible organising and putting such thought and care into every tiny detail!

Thank you to Olivia and Cyril for your amazing energy and positivity and for being so encouraging.  Thank you to ALL of you for such happy times and so much laughter. 

I feel completely revived. 

-Anna / Villars '21

Un temps suspendu au bord du lac d’Annecy, entouré de femme extraordinaire, ce week-end était le temps de se faire du bien et de ressourcer. Merci Victoire pour cette organisation, le choix parfait des activités et pour ton (et tes) attention(s) et ta bienveillance.  Une vraie bulle de bien-être s'offre pour s'évader du quotidien et se rencontrer. 

-Emilie / Annecy '22

Such a thoughtfully engineered, successfully presented retreat away. The smallest touches made a big impact and the carefully designed itinerary honestly made for the perfect mountain escape, a wonderful chance to breath, recharge and put yourself first and the opportunity to make new friends. So very memorable and highly recommanded!

-Emma / Villars '22

A very intense 4 days retreat in a beautiful hotel, well organised with a rich choice of activities, great teachers, good food and a very nice ambiance.

I really enjoyed this Portuguese escape »

-Christine / Comporta '22

How can 3 days feel like 10! Take the time Comporta retreat was pure bliss...everything was PERFECT.

Take me back pleaseeeeee. 

-Vanessa / Comporta '22

From long weekend escapes to invigorating one day retreats the thoughtful and meticulous planning that goes into “Take the Time” is unique.  Carefully chosen and locations (you can expect stunning scenery), healthy food (including Victoire’s energy balls which in themselves are worth traveling across continents for), instructors and trainers with infectious positivity and a world of experience – all of this and more combines into an experience which nourishes body and soul.  And it’s all so easy, you just need to sign up, turn up and the rest is taken care of.  I have done two retreats now and am an absolute convert – I arrive as a  grumpy, stressed out and mostly exhausted working mother and leave as a refreshed and happy human and wishing I could do it all over again the following weekend!  Thank you Victoire!

-Anna / Villars '22
