Divine Feminine Retreat in the French Alps
Dates Coming Soon!
Are you feeling called to deepen your relationship with the divine feminine inside you in France?
Come join our women’s retreat in the French Alps, where the air is clear offering you inner greater clarity, the water is fresh offering you embodied feminine vitality and the beauty of the mountains and mother nature is all around you.
Our Divine Feminine Location
A stunning luxury mountain lodge in the Tarantaise Valley, La Léchére, Fontaines Naves is a beautiful mountain village at 1300m altitudes. The above picture is just a taste of the magnificent view that is on offer for you to soak in! Located 15 minutes from the nearby market town of Moutiers, 30 minutes from the ski resorts of Valmorel and Meribel/Couchevel, the picturesque village has so much history. Many of the villages have lived here for generations.
This retreat invites you to rest into your body and recharge your feminine soul to discover the deep Mary Magdalene mysteries of the divine feminine within. All while being held here in the sanctuary of the clouds.
No matter where you look the views will take your breath away. The majestic mountains, the walking trails to explore and the energy of this part of France is almost impossible to capture in photos. It really is an embodied experience not to miss. If your heart is calling you are in for a treat!
The closest airport is Geneva (Switzerland) or you may chose to treat yourself to fly into Paris and make your way to the mountains.
Imagine the delight of taking in the colours of France as they weave carpets of beauty all over the mountainside. Summer is one of the most beautiful times to visit and to celebrate your own blossoming woman within.
The end of May and beginning of June is summer in France. When the snow melts, another side to the French Alps comes alive. The weather in the French Alps in the summer is unexpectedly warm, with mountain lakes to dip your toes in to cool off. The fresh mountain air will also leave you feeling energised and refreshed.
So expect… The scent of summer blossom and wild meadow flowers, and blue skies reflected in clear lakes. The weather is great for gratitude walks in nature and picnic lunches that nourish your body and soul. And balmy evenings enjoying a glass of wine as you sit and chat with a group of like-minded retreat sisters.
The weather is very comfortable and the average temperature is around 25 degrees Celsius. Layers are the best way to dress at this time of the year. A great time to escape the winter in other parts of the globe.
Our Divine Feminine Accommodation
The accommodation for our women’s retreat is in two Chalets’; both have been carefully restored to hold the essence of French mountain living.
Halfway up the mountain in the French Alps, you will discover the Village of Fontaine. Chatel Savoie Faire is a stunning luxury B&B that has been featured in Home and Living Magazine because of it’s uniqueness. A little further on and you find yourself in Grande Nave where Chez Milo is located, another beautiful chalet which has been recently renovated.
Both chalets reflect the authentic feel of alpine living. The attention to detail is evident in the beautiful wood and stone finishes, French antiques, chandeliers and plush furnishings throughout both chalets. The rooms welcome you to drop deeply into your feminine while feeling the welcoming comfort as you sink into couches with plush pillows to rest on.
Chalet Savoie Faire is our destination for optional cooking lessons and Chez Milo is right next to our Yoga studio where you will be experiencing your Divine Feminine in France program. In our time together we will move between the two locations that are within a very short walking distance.
Chalet Savoire Faire – Sleeps 8
4 x twin double bedrooms (one with ensuite)

Chez Milo – Sleeps 4

In case you would like to know more about your hosts at Chalet Savoire Faire…
I would like to introduce you to Nikki and Hugh. Savoire Faire is the brainchild of Nikki Shields Quinn and her husband, Hugh. With more than 30 years experience of cooking, entertaining and managing properties, Nikki and Hugh have transformed an abandoned barn in the beautiful village of Fontaines Naves, into a stunning luxury mountain lodge and cookery school.
Nikki is from Australia originally and Hugh is from Ireland originally. Nikki is fun-loving, caring and an amazing cook. She has lived and worked in the French Alps for 30 years and she speaks fluent French. Nikki goes way beyond just being a host you will feel like her best friend within seconds of meeting her. Hugh is more the quiet type of host but don’t be fooled he has a great sense of humour and also cares deeply about making your stay a memorable one. It’s due to Hugh’s talents that the two buildings have been lovingly transformed and fully restored over time to their magnificence you see today.
Together they make a fabulous team in work, life, and coupleship.
My husband and I stayed at their beautiful Chalet last year. We were both feeling burned out from work and life in general when we arrived and when we left we felt nurtured, nourished and rejuvenated on so many levels. We are grateful and blessed to have formed a wonderful friendship with Nikki and Hugh that I am sure will see us visiting them and their beautiful home many more times over the coming years.
I am so grateful that Nikki has encouraged me to create this women’s retreat and to offer it at their exquisite Chalet Savoire Faire in the French Alps.
Be prepared to never want to leave!
Your feminine soul food menu…

The food you will enjoy is often picked straight out of neighbouring gardens and purchased from local people at the farmers markets in Moutier. Nikki’s kitchen is like medicine for the soul each day she will lovingly prepare and serve with the utmost flair predominantly vegetarian food and she can also cater for vegan and gluten-free preferences. Please let us know when you are booking if you have any specific dietary requirements.
Of course, as we are in France you will enjoy some beautiful wines with your evening meals.
Nikki is an accomplished cook and also runs cooking classes so we are in very good hands and you will leave feeling lighter and healthier with a new sense of wellbeing after eating cleanly for the duration of this retreat.
Your Divine Feminine Retreat Program with Jenni Mears
What is the divine feminine you might be asking?
The Divine Feminine represents the connection to the part of your consciousness responsible for nurture, intuition, and empathy. “The divine feminine is the source of all manifestation, in both the inner and outer worlds,” says Sally Kempton author of Awakening Shakti. “When you have access to it, you have access to your own energy.”
Are you feeling called to deepen your spiritual relationship with the divine feminine inside of you in France?
When your divine feminine reveals herself to you there is no going back. She will remind you to think of your body as a sacred temple of the divine, no matter what age, shape or size, this retreat will unlock the divine feminine within you and all will be revealed gently and at a pace that is right for you.
Imagine experiencing a Mary Magdalene inspired rose sisters circle in the afternoons with like-hearted women exploring sacred Mary Magdalene healing practices and meditations to reconnect to your inner wellspring of divine feminine vitality and creative power. Our women’s circle will be the perfect place to nurture one another and have enriching conversations and discussions with each other. Ultimately, it will offer us all a calming and healing experience unlike any other.
When you hold all relationships as sacred including the one you have with yourself, the Divine Feminine will be awakened within you.
