The heart of this trip is the magic of the Christmas markets in the most adorable villages you’ve ever seen. We tuck into our own medieval villa for the length of the trip and explore everything this region has to offer: castles, wine, cobblestone-lined villages, fairy lights, and Alsatian fare — all plant-based!

We’re imagining a 6-day retreat of talks, workshops, and cooking demonstrations interspersed between:
