Fitness holidays and wellness retreats, France: restored medieval chateau

Scenic and peaceful, Puyssentut is the perfect sanctuary for a detox and fitness holiday. This renovated medieval chateau has been beautifully restored complete with exposed beams and rose clad walls creating a charming addition to the rolling countryside of Southern France. The pretty garden and sweeping views make it an ideal place to escape, detox and energise.

The chateau

During your holiday, you’ll stay in one of 10 bedrooms, making this retreat one of our more intimate. Each spacious bedroom has been individually styled and comes with an en suite shower room.

Outside, the chateau really flourishes. Only a short walk across the lawn from the house is the salt water swimming pool, lined by lavender, and dotted with sun loungers.

Around the grounds, there are plenty of outdoor spots for relaxing, and there is a lovely courtyard for al fresco dining where you can enjoy the gourmet cleansing cuisine lovingly created by our chefs and nutritionists.

Our team

We fly out a specialist, world-class personal trainer, yoga teacher, nutritionist, specialist chef and massage therapist for every retreat, so you always have experienced help at hand. And to make sure everything during your holiday runs smoothly, each retreat is managed by a dedicated retreat host, who is always present during your stay.

All inclusive retreats

Every in:spa retreat is fully inclusive, taking the stress of worrying about money out of the equation, so you can relax. Once you have paid for your holiday, you don’t need to think about money again*. Here’s what’s included:
