Creative Retreat Lady of the Chateau
Rose Garden Chateau de Puy Vidal

1267 AD

800 YEARS OF HISTORY

Chateau de Puy Vidal dates back to a time of kings, queens, and crusaders. It is a listed historic landmark in the heart of Nouvelle Aquitaine, an ancient building with a history that stretches back to the Middle Ages.  

The Latin word castellum is the origin of the French words “castel”, “chastel”, then “château" - whose original meaning is fortified village.

 

Once a medieval fortress defending against invading armies, today this castle protects its creative village within from the anxieties and stressors of the modern age. 

There is a certain magic that happens when a group of people, with shared interests, gather together under one roof in a land far far away.

 

 They break bread, leave their comfort zone, experience new traditions, push themselves, learn new pathways of thought, and in many ways come back to a truer version of self.

"My retreat experience was so much more than I even hoped it would be. It was truly exactly what I needed and didn't even know it."
