Creativity Tree House Family Retreat

Coucoo Grands Chênes, Raray, France

Overview

Bond, reconnect and savour a timeless moment having fun together with little ones on the Creativity Tree House Family retreat, exclusively designed by Balance Holidays. Host to a variety of adventures and tender memories, be in close contact with nature at every turn on this extraordinary programme. Aimed at boosting a stronger relationship between parent and child, learning to appreciate the value of each other’s company.

Open each day with a session of Child and Parent Vinyasa Energetic Yoga, stretching and extending the limbs in fun and active exercises together in a domain castle room. Which will be exclusively accessible by attending guests. A carefully devised sequence of poses and movements will consist of sitting, standing and lying down. Drawing inspiration from animals and the wild nature, observed through the surrounding environment and imitated on the mats. By exploring different movements and poses together, both parent and child will cultivate a non-verbal intuition and communication mechanism, reinforcing the family dynamic. All postures are safe and will be carefully monitored under the attentive eye of the leading expert. Evenings will be dedicated to gentle Yin Yoga and Pranayama sessions, which will be slower yet emotionally encouraging. Children will have the option to engage in mindfulness orientation exercises and activities under the supervision of a dedicated expert in the room next door.

Wander through the forest, collecting tokens of nature for patchworks, collages and more in the Creativity in Nature Workshop. This workshop will be led by an expert in Psychomotricity who specialises in activities for child brain development. In an era where the use of digital devices is rife and begins at a young age. Psychomotricity carries the objective of helping kids create harmony between the body, the emotions and the cognitive aspect, through movements and games. It also helps to increase self-esteem, concentration and communication skills.

During the Forest Bathing workshop, parents and children will be guided through a series of physical and mental exercises to aid relaxation, refocus and feel energised by way of connecting with Mother Nature. The kitchen is a great place to nurture and cultivate a stronger parent-child relationship. Held in one of the castle living rooms, children will be invited to explore their senses through touch, taste and smell, unleashing their creativity energy to prepare healthy and tasty treats.

Delicious locally sourced, plant-based food will be prepared from a menu carefully designed by Balance Holidays. We have also designed a special kids menu for this retreat to keep those little tummies happy. Mealtimes will be held in the dining room of the imposing castle surrounded by rising oak trees. A typical French dinner is also included in this programme to mark an authentic experience.

In moments of free time, take the opportunity to bond further in a unique Nordic O-Zone treated hot tub. Installed on the open terrace of most Coucoo Grands Chênes treehouse cabins. Ideal for admiring the undisclosed depths of the stunning scenery for an authentic nature immersion.

Please note, this retreat is suitable for children aged 6 and over.

For all-inclusive 4-day, 3-night stay, prices start at £1,752pp and will depend on the total number of guests for each treehouse cabin.
