france wellness retreats - various types
France is a destination that invites you to slow down. From long languorous lunches and indulgent spa treatments to unhurried strolls along aqueducts and avenues, restfulness really is the order of the day. The charm of the French countryside, the beauty of spawling vineyards and the dazzling nature of the ocean ensure there is always a blissful backdrop for your retreat experiences and the breadth of culture and cuisine available across the country means you’ll be continually enthralled. As France is such an accessible nation with excellent transportation links, it means that people from around the globe have the opportunity to discover the rich variety of retreat offerings. Whether a simple weekend break or a whole summer of self-discovery, France provides a plethora of options to choose from. Uncover new levels of peace and poise during a yoga retreat on the South Coast, disconnect to reconnect in the rural French countryside or tend to your mental health in the mountains.


With sprawling sunflower fields and luscious lavender farms lining the lanes, Provence is a real feast for the senses, and a rural Provencal retreat is the perfect way to slow down and take it all in. Spend your days basking in nature’s beauty with yoga practices and journaling sessions, before unwinding for the evening with a delicious French meal and perhaps even a glass of local rosé!

La Côte d’Azur

Arguably one of the most picturesque coastlines on the continent, La Côte d’Azur (France’s south coast from Marseille to Monaco) features an incredible array of spectacular sites to explore. With gold-sand beaches, stunning spas, secluded hiking spots and some fantastic Michelin-starred dining, there really is something for everyone. Whether you opt for an all-inclusive stay at a dedicated retreat site or choose something flexible so that you can dip in and out of activities, the options are endless.

French Alps

If breath-taking vistas and fresh mountain air is what your heart desires, look no further than the beautiful French Alps. Nestled high in the picturesque resorts of Chamonix or La Rosiere, our remote French Alp retreats offer a chance to get away from it all. Combine skiing with self-discovery or writing with raclette as you delve into the wisdom of the mountains.

La Loire

The Loire Valley has long been considered a jewel in the crown of the French countryside, with rolling hills and vineyards, magnificent châteaux and quaint towns to pique your interest. Switch off from technology and soak up the tranquil ambience of this resplendent region during one of our transformative Loire Valley healing retreats.


Just a hop, skip and jump across the water from the UK, Brittany is close enough to make it the ideal destination for a weekend retreat while also ensuring you feel you’ve ventured far enough to escape the day-to-day. This region combines culture and heritage with sublime natural experiences and sumptuous French cuisine so you can soak it all up in one single location. With locally sourced produce and eco-friendly hotels, Brittany also ticks plenty of green boxes so that know you’re choosing a retreat that aligns with your ethical values.

Painting Retreats

With France being home to such a renowned array of artists, it’s no surprise that folk flock here on painting retreats from around the world. Whether you’re painting vineyards or valleys, animals or amazing architecture there is always something here to take inspiration from. Plus, the seasonal changes are so spectacular here that you could come back time and again at different times of the year for a whole new experience!

Women’s Only Retreats

Women’s wellness covers a vast array of topics and our gorgeous, wholesome women’s retreats in France are some of the best options out there! Delve into a journey of self-discovery and healing in the picturesque French countryside, with mindfulness, womb healing, divine feminine embodiment practices, holistic health treatments, sharing circles and coaching sessions.

Reading or Writing Retreats

As France has so many peaceful pockets it’s no wonder it’s such a perfect location for a reading or writing retreat. The stillness and serenity of these retreats allow you plenty of time to get into a good book or finally put pen to paper with the words in your heart that are longing to be released.

If you’re looking for French retreats that provide an all-encompassing wellness offering including peaceful locales, well-thought-out activities, wholesome dining and the opportunity to connect with like-minded souls, then you‘ve come to the right place. We love seeking out properties that focus on serenity and sustainability, with plenty of nooks and crannies in which to relax, meals made with local, organic and seasonal produce and dedicated professionals that want to ensure your wellbeing is completely taken care of!
