La Source, Samoens

By Hollie Wicks

So the Christmas and New Year’s celebrations are over for another year and if you’re anything like us you’ve been overindulging on the mince pies and eggnog. It’s time to make some time for a body detox to build up your energy levels and stay healthy for 2013. A Traincation to La Source could be the perfect thing for you…

La Source, Samoens
The La Source resort is found hidden in the south east of France. It’s very easy to get to via train and the website even gives you the best directions on how to get their without a gas-guzzling car or plane. If you’re in the UK, see SnowCarbon and check this link for your route finder.

The holiday is a hidden gem found just an hour away from Geneva. It’s based in a converted farm in the historic village of Samoens. La Source has a variety of adventure packages, however this time of the year their yoga-adventure holiday is perfect.

There’s a wonderful selection of activities, such as long winding walks in the beautiful alpine meadows, swimming in the lakes and also local markets to explore.

There are also guided adventure sports and therapies available too so there’ll be enough choice to keep you super active. On site you will find a private swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi and a world class beauty salon with unlimited use – perfect for injecting a spot of new life into the post-detox new you!

If you’re still not convinced this is for you, take a look at these stunning pictures…

/ Turn up the style (not the heat) /
/ Love the trend (not the spend) /
/ Do it in public (not the car/plane) /
