Relax and rejuvenate at St Jean Retreats
Set in a lush valley overlooking the historic and picturesque hilltop village of Cordes-sur-Ciel in the heart of the beautiful Tarn region in south-west France, St. Jean is a new group-only retreat 

The stunning, large stone house nestles within landscaped gardens and meadows surrounded by over 150 acres of private hillside woodland.


There are plenty of places to relax and read at St Jean

St. Jean offers a beautiful location as a venue where instructors and teachers of holistic and creative disciplines may bring up to 11 students for a private group retreat. Once here, a small, friendly team is waiting to provide guests with everything they need in the comfort of this rural idyll.

St. Jean has nine rooms, and all are either en-suite or with dedicated private bathrooms. There is an outdoor swimming pool surrounded by mature shrubs and plants, furnished with Moroccan sun loungers. The grounds include a tennis court, a 10th century chapel, a dedicated yoga studio and outdoor wellness platform.


Guests enjoy three meals a day… with wine

Guests may enjoy three meals daily with wine – you are in France, after all! – and dietary requirements are catered for, with advance warning required.

The single treatment room offers massage, reiki, reflexology and acupuncture. One-on-one or small group wellness training are available on request. And if you really cannot bear to be cut off from the rest of the world,t, there is Wifi available.


The property is surrounded by delightful gardens

The cost is £8,000 for a group of 12 for five days, and £10,000 for a group of 12 for seven days.

St. Jean is situated around one hour northeast of Toulouse Blagnac airport, which enjoys frequent direct flights from many cities in Europe and is also extremely well served from a number of UK airports including Gatwick, Stansted, Luton, Bristol, Birmingham and Edinburgh. Taxis or a group minibus can be arranged if required. Cordes itself has its own railway station (Cordes-Vindrac) and guests can be met there.
