Mother’s Day Pampering Weekend 2017

How many times have you wished you could adequately say ‘Thanks’ to your Mum only to find that (as always) you were too busy to make it happen?  Well this year do something special.  Our fabulous French château will be transformed over the Mothers’ Day long weekend into a pampering palace for the exclusive use of mothers and their daughters and sons.  We’ll even take care of the planning and organising for you as well so there’s really no excuse this year.  Show your Mum (or someone who is like a Mum to you) how much they are appreciated and how grateful you are for all their help and support over the years.   Use this precious time together to emphasise that special motherly bond in our exceptional 5*destination château.

Accommodation only in a private guest suite 240 Euros per person based on a 3 night stay with two people sharing a twin room.  Contact us for other options.
