Château du Treuil

Your luxury retreat and escape venue in the grounds of a 19th Century
Château close to Cognac, South West France

Introducing Château du treuil

Welcome to Château du Treuil.

This is the inspiring home of transformational business retreats and premium holidays and the perfect place to host retreats and events of your own, in luxury converted barns in the grounds of a pretty château in a typical French village.

Our Dream

In 2019, we were living the life we’d always led. We had a nice home in an English village. We had good businesses, contented children, and a busy life.

But we also had a dream. You probably know the kind of dream we mean: that low-grade, only-semi-serious idea of a life you’d like to create…until real life pulls you back into line and gives your shoulders a shake.

Our dream was to live in France.

And the chances are we’d have carried on with that half-dream…taking holidays in France as often as we could, and while away rainy Saturdays making fantasy plans for a new life in the sunshine. Until it was too late, and we were looking back at our life and imagining what might have been…

Thank goodness we were saved from all that regret and instead made the dream come true – and it’s thanks to the magic of Château du Treuil.

The château cast its spell on us not only for our family life, but for our business dreams too.

You see, clustered neatly around the château’s tree-dappled courtyard are two newly refurbished gîtes, a soaring meeting/event space, two swimming pools, verandahs, and tranquil grounds – lots of amazing spaces where you can work magic too.

 

One day, over a real coffee or perhaps a glass of fabulous French wine, we’ll tell you the full story between that day and this.

Suffice to say that we seized the day and sold up. We put two children, one dog, two rabbits and two pet rats into a camper van, drove south west for 15 hours, put our belongings into storage while we negotiated several months of legal paperwork then unleashed a huge programme of building work to make it our own.

At moments it was beyond stressful. But we are incredibly glad we did it!

Karen holds her own immersive, transformational coaching retreats here. It’s the perfect place for smart women building remarkable success in business to get away - to go deep in their business (and themselves) to solve problems, build action plans and strategies, and break through barriers to scale their results and increase their rewards.

And if you’re a coach, or a trainer, or perhaps a wellbeing practitioner of some discipline, we know you’ll love holding retreats here too.

In fact, whether you’re taking part in a retreat or running a retreat, this is the perfect place to work miracles in and for your business.

Because Château du Treuil is not just packed with all the spaces and the facilities you could possibly need.

It’s just one of those truly magical places.

Now, we’re not suggesting you completely transform your life like we have….but would you like to work a little magic in your business?

Then you have come to the right place.
