Château des Mussets

About This Center

Connect with all your 5 senses, here in the hidden green heart of France. The colours of the landscape, the fragrance of flowers, the feel of the grass beneath your feet, the sound of birdsong – will all inspire and re-energise you.

Our experienced mentors will guide you as you rediscover your artistic talents or connect mind and body through yoga or simply enjoy good food and wine in the beautiful mellow surroundings of a bygone age.

‍Our exclusive 5-person workshops offer a relaxed, informal opportunity for self-discovery. Workshops will take place both in our atelier or en plein air.

We offer exclusive retreats that are fully catered.Lunches and dinners are prepared freshly by our chef using fresh local produce from the market or our own kitchen garden. Snacks will be available throughout the day. Full continental breakfasts are provided.

Venue Highlights

We would like to welcome you at Château des Mussets, an elegant Belle Epoque chateau set in its own private park of 9 hectares. As you walk through the park with its lake, meadows, flower garden and parklands, you only hear birdsong and clattering water. Breakfast is served on the terrace, where you can see our roaming deer in the meadow in front of the chateau.

We are located a stone's throw of Vichy in the green heart of France.
