Chateau Bootcamp: The Wedding Retreat


Planning • 8th January 2016
Back to posts

If, like so many us, you're planning to get fit for before you wedding, THIS is the way to do it. Living the life of luxury, deep in the heart of the Dordogne valley, with private chefs and and personal trainers on hand. Sounds like a luxury reserved for the A-list right? Wrong! Here's how you can get a slice of the pie (note: there probably won't be pie). Meet Yana, owner of esteemed destination wedding company, Peach Perfect Weddings, to tell you all about it...

"By now you’ve probably made your New Year’s resolutions and are rocking them! Or if you’re anything like me, you’ve tried and failed to give up ice cream once again... But if you haven’t yet found a resolution you believe you’ll stick to, then we’ve got a great one for you!

Whether you just got engaged this Christmas or are in the final run-up to your big day, it’s never too late (or too early!) to kick-start your wedding fitness regime. With bridal bootcamps exploding in popularity year after year we can’t help but wonder; where are the grooms? Haven’t they heard? Couples who train together – stay together!

This is the philosophy (or mantra as I prefer to call it) based on which we created Chateau Bootcamps France, wedding retreats series. In collaboration with Kale & Sprout Pure Fitness we invite you and your spouse-to-be to the first ever pre-wedding fitness bootcamp for couples! Join us for a week long active holiday designed to help shed those stubborn pounds whilst spending some quality time with your partner in one of France’s most beautiful regions.

We are a team of renowned fitness coaches, nutrition coaches and high-end wedding professionals – all centred on preparing you for your wedding day. You will sweat it out together during the day, then enjoy some well-deserved time by the pool and a delicious, nutritionally-balanced French meal in the evenings. You will also have the opportunity to attend wedding masterclasses and come along to excursions, wine tastings and even see some local wedding venues!

As a motivational bonus to get you geared up for success, we’re going to throw in a romantic Engagement Photoshoot with professional hair & makeup at the end of your week-long training session!

Our bootcamp is located in the beautiful Chateau des Granges Vieilles in Souilac, with 7 acres of surrounding parkland close to the Dordogne River and your very own private swimming pool. The region offers stunning walks and the local activities include horse riding and kayaking. Whether you take your fitness seriously or just need an excuse for a guilt-free, pre-wedding holiday we look forward to seeing you at our next bootcamp taking place in France on 7 – 14 May 2016."
