Community and Connection

Experience the magic of our intimate retreats, where small groups of 10 or fewer participants gather in the embrace of our historic Château.


With a high ratio of our dedicated host team to attendees – up to 6 supportive team members for every 10 participants – you'll receive personalized attention and guidance every step of the way.
