Group fun in the sun

Our spring and autumn retreats are a fantastic way to learn new skills, meet new people and escape to the sun. We've tracked down some amazing instructors to lead each of our retreats - all experts in their field. Each retreat begins with a group dinner, and a group breakfast is included each morning. You'll also have time each day to explore the region, relax by the pool or unwind in our jacuzzi. Read on to find out more about the retreats on offer this autumn and next spring.

Autumn Retreats

Our Autumn 2022 retreats will be announced in the spring. 


DECEMBER 23 - 28, 2024
Our last Christmas House Party was a huge success - and we're planning an even more fun 5 days in 2024 - plenty of delicious meals, fun outings and time to chill and get to know each other. We'll also be throwing a party on the last night - an excuse to relax and get very merry!


DECEMBER 31, 2022
What better way to see in the new year than to fly away to some gorgeous part of the world (South of France?) and party it up with lots of other happy gay men? We'll be celebrating in style with guests and a few gay friends, with a long and delicious dinner followed by bubbly-fuelled party. We will be playing games and having a gay 'ol time. So join us for a New Year you'll never forget.

The Perfect Time to Visit

Our retreats are held in spring and autumn - both awesome times to visit Cinq & Sept. In spring, the countryside is carpeted with flowers and in autumn, the vines and tress all turn vibrant shades of gold, orange and red. The region is less crowded and the weather is mostly sunny - the perfect time to explore castles or take a walk along the beach. Enjoy a glass of wine while soaking in our jacuzzi, or chat with friends in our new Cocktail Lounge with its roaring fire.
