WELLNESS

Relax and re-energise in the luxurious surroundings of Chateau de la Motte Henry, at our exclusive wellness retreats. Whether your focus is fitness and diet, recapturing lost energy or simply having fun with friends; we have an unforgettable experience for you. Highly personalised, your retreat program will help you achieve your goals and our team of leading nutritionists, fitness professionals and therapists will guide you on your journey.

PERSONAL WELLNESS RETREAT

Your Fitness Revolution

Our flagship wellness retreat is built around you. Initial Skype interviews, health screening tests and fitness assessments establish your goals and your baseline prior to the retreat. We then design a personal retreat program to set you on your way to revolutionising your health, wellness and fitness. Supported throughout by our expert team of fitness professionals, wellness instructors, clinicians, nutritionists and therapists; group sessions and small group activities will supplement your 1-1 time. And we ensure there is plenty of opportunity to relax, socialise and utilise the facilities at our stunning Chateau. You will leave with a personalised, practical and purposeful wellness program to continue your journey.

PAMPERING RETREAT

Sights, sparkles and spas

Designed for those who want a relaxing, stress-free, long weekend break to re-energise and relax. It all starts for some with an optional night in Paris, staying at a boutique spa hotel near all the sights and sounds. The next lunchtime, a short train ride to Laval, and you arrive at Chateau de la Motte Henry, meeting up with guests who have chosen to arrive directly. During your stay you can enjoy complementary spa treatments, group exercise classes, morning and evening yoga, daily walks and picturesque cycle rides. Excursions to local sights, nearby spas and the famous local markets are also on the agenda. You may prefer to just chill at the Chateau, enjoy our pool and gym, and explore our glorious grounds. But make sure you are around for the sumptuous food on offer and evening sparkles.

LUXURY WOMENS' HEALTH RETREAT

Embrace Change

Exclusively for women. Prior to the retreat we will seek to appreciate your challenges and goals through a series of consultations (Skype or on-line) with our women's health team. Additionally, we may recommend an endocrine analysis. Such investigations do not take long and enable us to 'tailor-make' your retreat program - therapy, nutrition and support. Once 'on retreat' you can relax at our 'fairytale' Chateau and transition seemlessly into your program. There will be: delicious and nutritious meals; informative group seminars; therapeutic exercise classes; and enjoyable local excursions. At the same time you will benefit from personal therapy, a nutritional consultation, physical fitness review and feedback on your endocrine analysis. We aim for you to leave happy, healthy and positive, with great memories and 'informed wellbeing'.
