Here at House of Coco, we are all about self care. When we get to have ‘me’ time and travel at the same time we feel zen af! Group Evolution is offering an exclusive Sights, Sparkles and Spas retreat from 6th-9th December for women who want to re-energise, relax and get ready for the festive season, and it’s right up our street.

Based at the fairytale Chateau de la Motte Henry in the Pays de la Loire, France, guests will enjoy pampering spa treatments, re-energising yoga classes, sumptuous food and drink and fascinating local excursions, including an optional overnight trip to Paris.

Chateau de la Motte Henry is set in over 27 acres of dramatic parkland grounds and provides luxurious accommodation, delicious food and extensive leisure facilities from its magnificent location, near Laval, in the heart of the French countryside.

Those choosing to add in the seasonal Parisian adventure will enjoy an overnight stay in a boutique hotel close to all the sights. Guests will experience the Christmas markets, complimentary spa treatments and a delicious dinner at a local Bistro. The following morning there is time for sightseeing (or more shopping) before being whisked by train and private transfer to the Chateau for some well-deserved R&R.

On arrival at the chateau there will be a welcome champagne reception. During the three-day pampering retreat guests will be introduced to the wonders of the region and the Chateau de la Motte Henry, with spa treatments, restorative yoga, daily walks, visits to the nearby sights and wine and cheese tastings.

Retreat attendees have exclusive use of the Chateau de la Motte Henry estate, with its scenic grounds, high class fitness facilities and sumptuous lounges. With welcoming spaces both inside and outdoors, it’s the perfect location to rest and re-set before the chaos of Christmas descends, whether enjoying the views from the impressive lakeside terrace, walks through the woodland and walled garden, or simply curling up with a book in one of the property’s period lounges.

This superb seasonal break is priced from £1,050 per person based on two people sharing either a luxurious twin or en-suite double room. The Parisian adventure can be added at a cost of £500 per person. Transfers from local airports and train stations to Parisian hotels and the Chateau are included in the price of this exclusive pre-Christmas package as is an on-site host in Paris.

Notes to Editors

Group Evolution delivers premium, all-inclusive retreats from the luxury of Chateau de la Motte Henry, in the Pays de la Loire, France. Group Evolution partners with leading coaches, coaching companies and health professionals to deliver its retreats, each well-respected in their field.

All retreats are delivered from the stunning, nineteenth century, Chateau de la Motte Henry. Set in over 27 acres of glorious woodland grounds, the venue provides luxury accommodation, nutritious and delicious food and drink, relaxing social spaces (both inside and outside) and extensive sports performance facilities.

The chateau is built in the Renaissance style which is so acclaimed across the Loire Valley. Only local materials are used in its construction, such as the abundance of oak obtained from the forests of Bergault and Charnie. The Salon Bois inside the chateau is panelled with this oak and is the only one of its kind in France.

Retreats focus on three key areas; endurance, wellness and creative. The endurance sports program covers cycling, running and triathlon, while the wellness program addresses personal fitness, women’s health, injury rehabilitation and luxury pamper breaks. Creative retreats will launch in 2020.

Group Evolution’s retreats are unique in that they are tailored to each guest prior to attending the retreat, allowing coaches to spend more time helping and less time analysing. Retreats leave guests relaxed, inspired and on their way to becoming their best.
