Yoga, Mindfulness Workshops, Cookery Demos and
Food Experiences: La Cannonerie is the ideal location.
Set in the peaceful rolling French countryside La Cannonerie is the ideal place to relax and unplug from the busyness of everyday life. Whether you are a yoga teacher looking to host a retreat or a chef in search of a venue for a gourmet weekend we can provide you an amazing location to wow your guests from the moment they arrive. On site we have seven high standard cottages with a total of 11 kingsize bedrooms and 6 twin bedrooms. Retreat weekends include exclusive use of the Domaine including heated swimming pool with fabulous vineyard views, loggia opening out onto the courtyard and stone barn with twinkly fairy light ceiling – perfect for those special dinners together as a group.
Retreats are invited to bring their own chef or we can recommend some excellent chefs who have worked here at La Cannonerie in the past. A Cognac Distillery tour is possible with our neighbours and can be reached by a short walk through the vines. Bicycles can be hired from a local company (drop off and collection included) and allow your guests the freedom to explore the local area in their free time. There are some excellent local brocantes and flea markets to explore and some beautiful villages at the coast to wander around for a day trip. If you are interested in wine the UNESCO world heritage site of St Emilion and Blaye are not far and the beautiful riverside town of Cognac is just 20 minutes away.
With great transport links to the UK and beyond its easy to reach La Cannonerie. Bordeaux is just over an hour away (Easyjet, Ryanair, BA flights) Bordeaux also boasts the new high speed Bordeaux – London TGV train meaning thats it quicker than ever to reach us.
