There are so many types of retreats, some more popular and common than others, but when you have a beautiful venue like Château Saint Georges (yes we’re biased) we want everyone to experience the wonder and luxury of it, no matter what kind of retreat you are planning to host with us. Our extraordinary 19th-century Château is situated in the charming hillside town of Grasse only minutes from world-renowned perfumeries. The Château has been coined “Le Petit Versailles” and is a southern France landmark, built by a famous perfumer., which means it is steeped in history and an interesting place to visit with lots of added extras when it comes to hosting your retreat here. So, if you’re looking for a retreat venue that’s historic and beautiful, and in a wondrous location, then the Château is a great place to start. We’re experienced in hosting all kinds of retreats and here we talk about what types of retreats we can host and why the Château is the perfect place…
By far the most popular retreat is that of wellness. This could be anything from Yoga, meditation to holistic therapies, that aim to focus on and improve your overall wellbeing through connection, relaxation and education. The Château provides a tranquil location, connected with nature and away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With lush landscapes and dreamy views, it’s a place of calmness and serenity. Not only is it nestled in a 3-hectare park, meaning you have lots of outside space to use for activities and classes, but it has an indoor wellness centre with a spectacular indoor swimming pool, spa, jacuzzi, steam bath and sauna and a massage room. It’s perfect for downtime or to include in your wellness treat activities. The perfect place to host your wellness retreat and help your clients to press the reset button.
If you’re looking for a retreat venue for your educational course or workshop then the Château can provide a perfect mixture of space for education and relaxation. From florist workshops, painting and photography courses it provides a beautiful backdrop and a vast amount of space with professional work areas for you to host your guests. Depending on what type of workshop or course you are hosting, there are lots of different options when it comes to space. You may need the details and views of the surroundings if you are talking about photography. For a floristry workshop, you may require outside space to be amongst nature. The possibilities are endless and we will work with you to make sure you have the perfect place to host your specific retreat.
You may be looking for a retreat venue that also requires some professional learning. The Château has separate areas for both, meaning it’s perfect for a professional learning retreat. Your guests can have the best of both worlds. We open our doors for your seminars, board meetings, conferences, internships, workdays or team building and have specific areas for you to host in. Then for downtime, you have the luxury surroundings and wellness centre for your guests to enjoy.
For all of our retreats, we can host up to 40 guests in-house. Your guests can relax in luxury rooms that are bathed in natural light and decorated with beautiful crystal chandeliers and marble fireplaces. We have an in-house catering team that will meet all your requirements when it comes to providing a beautiful dining experience for your guests. Your chosen cuisine can be served in a room of your choice, including our exquisite conservatory that has panoramic views of Grasse. Our luxurious accommodation offers refined and spiritual comfort for all your guests, and our dedicated team will be on hand to make sure everything runs perfectly.
