Our gorgeous Chateau, with luxury, boutique style accommodation, superb sports facilities, and welcoming social areas is set in 9 hectares of beautiful woodland grounds. Referenced in Times Top 20 Chateaux, it combines period refinement with modern convenience.
Renowned freestyle coach, Ray Gibbs, will tailor your technique to extract the maximum efficiency from your style. He provides practical, real world advice that is current and impactful, whilst adopting a relaxed, supportive style - helping you to achieve your goals. Prior to attending our retreat we spend the time to learn about these objectives, so that we can help you achieve them.
Our fully supported, ability-based group swims are designed to be challenging but also enjoyable and inspiring. The open water lakes of the Mayenne and the undulating countryside of the Pays de la Loire provide a stunning backdrop.
All meals and snacks are provided. Our eye-catching meals are designed to support your active lifestyle but also to be tasty and excite. Snacks are available for the times in between. And homemade energy bars are available for those longer efforts.
Individually designed en-suite bedrooms, stunning renovated sitting rooms and cosy reading areas inspire and relax whilst staying true to the Chateau's heritage.
Our 1-1 analysis and consultations will help you move forward, whatever your specific objectives. Our ability-based program will enhance your home-based training and provide a pre-season boost. And our venue will also enable you to review your strength, conditioning and mental preparedness for what lies ahead.
Professional swimming coaches - with a successful race background - are complemented by degree qualified sports scientists and leading therapists to cater for your every need. Personal service in an enjoyable, relaxing group environment. Approximately 1:3, staffing:guests, ratio.
