My biggest passion is seeing people connect to their Source and reach their highest potential!
Saskia Anley-McCallum, Founder and Host
Hello... I am Saskia Anley-McCallum and I founded La Source and host every trip. Part of what I love about running these holidays, is meeting all the super lovely and interesting people who come on the trips.. and seeing children, and often adults, flourish!
I am a Dutch-Australian world nomad who grew up on 3 continents. I studied film and Anthropology in London and then travelling across America, I came across a loving community passionate about serving humanity... They had a base camp in the wilds of the Appalachian Mountains. I fell in love with the people, place and ethos, and worked for Outward Bound for 5 years instructing personal development and wilderness adventure courses across the East Coast of America, Costa Rica and South Africa. I was making films along the way and at 28 felt ready to move back to London and get a 'proper job'! I spent the next 10 years in the rat race, paying a mortgage and making a living directing and producing corporate films.
In the meantime, family came along. I did a Steiner teacher training course and made a lot of films for the Steiner Schools movement before wanting to check out and spend more time with my children.
In 2006, I moved to the French Alps with my young family and we designed and built La Source, the first Eco Lodge in the Alps, a renovated 18th Century Farm House which opened its door to guests in 2008. It quickly became a hip yoga and adventure sports venue and got a lot of attention in the British and French Press.
The Eco Lodge was sold in 2011 so now I am free to find the most suitable accommodation for each trip. I love to share these wonderful weeks with families. When you put nature, adventure and a loving community together, Magic happens!
I really look forward to meeting you and your family!
