escape to the chateau for your annual training camp

Team up with Group Evolution to deliver your training camps. It isn't a hard choice: you don't have to fly; you get exclusive use of the whole site; and we've got great facilities for endurance athletes. You also get the luxury of staying in a stunning Chateau.

You can lead the camp with your own coaches, our coaches and ride leaders, or a combination. The Group Evolution team will support you, delivering a number of core and value added services, that take the hassle out of organising your camp, so you get just what you are after. And you will be pleasantly surprised at the cost, especially compared to other common retreat venues.
