Join us at our signature Run to Wellness retreat. Refocus your mind and energise your body at our 'fairytale' Chateau.

Our running program is designed to improve your wellbeing and your fitness on the stunning towpaths, trails and tracks of the Pays de la Loire. The long weekend will incorporate various coached running workouts designed to help you find out more about how to be a stronger, fitter and faster runner. These workouts will be suitable for all abilities.

Our 27 acre estate provides the glorious setting for you to relax, enjoy meditative yoga classes and therapeutic on-site massage, engage in our thought-provoking seminars and socialise with like-minded individuals whilst enjoying nutritious food and drink. Leave with your mind, body and spirit refreshed.


The Chateau is accessed by two main staircases, though a ramp can be made available for those in wheelchairs. We have the ability to accommodate guests on the ground floor of the Gites, in the quadrangle, next to the Gym, Pool and Lake. This beautiful cottage is self contained with its own bathroom, kitchenette and lounge / bedroom area. It is only a short walk of about 100 yards from the Chateau and can accommodate further guests in 3 upstairs bedrooms. Those with accessibility needs looking to come to the Chateau should contact us in advance of booking to ensure that we can accommodate them.

Eco Practices

We operate a sustainable travel policy, through which we offset the carbon cost of your travel to and from the Chateau. We also incentivise sustainable travel by train and car sharing schemes. On site, we utilise locally sourced produce, direct from farmers wherever possible, drawing upon the thriving local agricultural community in the 'garden' of France. We also aim to reduce our carbon footprint at the Chateau, with a renewable energy program in place, to move increasingly to renewable energy sources and self-sustaining woodland management, providing heat and electricity to our buildings and facilities. In 2021/22 we are installing air source heat pumps to serve the pool and relaying our running trail with woodchips from felled Oak trees on site that are either unhealthy or diseased.

Directions and Travel

"We travel not to escape life, but to relish new experiences". Chateau de la Motte Henry is easily accessible from the UK and mainland Europe. Well served by local airports, mainline trains and ferries, the Chateau is also well connected to the French road network. Nantes, Rennes and Paris airports are all conveniently located for the Chateau. Nearby Laval and Sable train stations are very well connected to Paris and the rest of Europe. And ferry terminals at Caen and St Malo are great if you fancy bringing your car. We offset the carbon cost of your journey and offer incentives for sustainable travel. You should expect to be within 5-6 hours of the Chateau from your front door, if you are based in the UK. That includes journeys to transport hubs, transfers and check-in.
