Daydreaming about the perfect luxury retreat – either going on one or organising one? Sometimes we all need a little time and space to reflect on life, have some “me” time and work on recharging ourselves. A retreat is the perfect place to do this. There are some basic things that you need to think about when planning your luxury retreat which will make your time there more relaxing and researching will mean it’s the perfect place to do what you need to do. If you are organising one yourself, here are some key things to consider when choosing your retreat venue.
The location of your luxury retreat is so important. Decide on what you want for you and the people coming; to wake on the beach and watch the sunrise, be in the mountains and hear the wildlife, or wake up in the heart of the city? The meaning of luxury is different for everyone but most people choose to be amongst nature and scenic views to reconnect with themselves. Our château offers a luxury retreat away from the hustle and bustle of every day life, in the heart of the French Riviera. It truly is one of the wonders of the Grasse region, a medieval town with with a true French style.
Type of Retreat
How long do you want your retreat to be and what are you delivering at your retreat? Retreats range from luxurious to rustic so depending on what type of experience you are looking to create, will depend on the type of retreat you create. It could be a group retreat, where you travel and stay alone or a silent retreat. At the château we offer a more luxurious retreat option, with beautiful surroundings, scenic views and we like to think we add a luxurious edge when it comes to staying with us. Plus your your retreat can be as long or short as you need it to be at the château.
Your accomodation depends on the type of place you are looking for your retreat. If you know that privacy is important to you and your guests, make sure that your retreat venue has private rooms and bathrooms. Some retreats are dorm style bedrooms or require you to share with others. Is this is a dealbreaker for you and your guests, then make sure you check! Renovated with great care, the Château offers spacious rooms, bathed in natural light. If you choose to spend the night in our luxury retreat in the French Riviera, it has 5 bedrooms with bathrooms for up to 14 people, The Château is presented as a modern and luxurious accommodation, offering refined and spiritual comfort.
Do you want your guests to forage for your breakfast or get it served to you? For some of us food will be a dealbreaker so make sure you check out the local cuisine of where you are staying. Do they offer vegetarian or vegan options and can they cater if you have any food intolerances? If certain types of foods are out of your comfort zone, then make sure you pick a place where you are going to be able to eat the delicious foods you love! Make sure you speak to the venue owner and ask all these questions before booking.
How much space do you need? Do you want your guests to be able to do yoga at sunset, take part in group acitivities or just have space to roam around and find some thinking space? We think space is important when looking for your luxury retreat. The Château is nestled in a 3-hectare park, which means there’s plenty of outdoor space to while away the days in. All our rooms are spacious and offer an irreplaceable charm.
What do you need on your luxury retreat? Think about the practicalites and the little luxuries. The château has lots to offer when it comes to the little things, from breakfast on the terrace overlooking the panoramic views of Grasse, to an indoor swimming pool and wellness centre and spa. You can spend the days in total relaxation with full use of the jacuzzi, steam bath, massage room and bar area.
