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.


OCTOBER 18 - 22, 2022
A 4-day 'South France Wine Retreat' - hosted by the amazing Wendy Gedney and her team of wine experts. It will include two days of wine tours with expert guides (2 wineries each day with restaurant lunch included), a tour of the gorgeous Abbaye de Fontfroide with lunch, followed by a vermouth tour and tasting at La Maison Noilly Prat - plus time to relax and explore.

OCTOBER 25 - 30, 2022

The group will discover the hidden secrets and potential of their bodies by learning to draw on, and direct, their inner Tantric energy. You'll be using yoga, meditation, breath, touch and massage to achieve blissful, possibly ecstatic, states: maybe even 'body orgasms'.

NOVEMBER 1 - 6, 2022

This five-night Naked Yoga & Meditation Retreat will again be run by Nickles Spencer, one of the UK's leading teachers of men's yoga. It will feature 'Skin-On-Skin' sessions: working in pairs so you see your own movements reflected in others, helping to foster trust and self-confidence. Group dinner first night and plenty of time to get out and about or just chill with the group.

Two gorgeous walks and 2 fantastic (electric) bike rides that make the most of the stunning scenery of autumn. We'll be making our way through through 4 different types of terrain (mountain, coast, vineyard & lake) over 4 days, and stopping to enjoy picnics with a view. There will be a group dinner on the first night and time to unwind in the jacuzzi or explore the area.

Autumn Retreats

Our Autumn 2022 retreats will be announced in the spring. 


DECEMBER 23 - 28, 2022
Our last Christmas House Party was a huge success - and we're planning an even more fun 5 days in 2022 - 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 mostly 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 - after a morning of yoga or art classes. Or simply enjoy a glass a wine while soaking in our jacuzzi.
