10 #stayhome Activities at le Mas des Lecques
1. Sunbathe by the pool at Le Mas des Lecques
This is probably the one and only thing you really want to do during the lockdown, especially if you’ve been cooped up for the past 2 months. Our pool has been designed in the sunniest location of our garden and the terrace gets sunshine until really late. It’s the place to be!
2. Take an online Yoga class
We have the sweetest yoga teacher, Laure Quinnepoix who’s studio is based in La Ciotat. In the summer months she’s on holiday, but during the quarantine, she made the most adorable Youtube videos for us to participate in. Her class is based on hatha yoga and you will feel totally rejuvenated at the end.
Feel free to pick up one of the yoga mats and plonk them on the terrace in front of the pool and have a go…
3. Go for a #stayhome walk within a 1km radius
In quarantine mode in France, you are allowed to go for a walk within a 1km radius from your place of residence. Here is the map of where you can go…
– The beach
– A nice walk into the hinterland

– A trip to the bakery, food and veg stall and pizza place La Cave à Pizza

5. Order takeaway from some of our favorite restaurants
A lot of our friends are restaurant owners. Sadly, this is going to be a tough time for them in the next coming months. Support our locals by ordering takeaway. The following take away shops prepare delicious food and respect the safety measures.

6. Play a board game
We’ve got so many board games, we can’t recall them all, but you’re bound to find your childhood favorite. If not there are loads of packs of cards and chips for you to organise a game of poker! This is flukey, the book “Pandemia” next to the Pictionary box is totally fortuitous.
