L’Orangerie: History,
Luxury and Privacy

A perfect retreat from the bustle of modern life

Whether you’re having coffee by the pool and watching the sunrise over the valley or taking in the view of the magnificent Chateau, L’Orangerie is the perfect retreat from busy modern life.

The villa’s pale walls and stripped floors combine a calm aesthetic with mid-century furniture, French antiques, curated artwork and boutique luxury.

Six ensuite bedrooms, with stunning views over the Dropt Valley, provide sound sleep and a spectacular start to your day.  Its roomy interiors and choice of terraces (and kitchens!) provide plenty of space  for you to read, practice or chill out in peace.

We’re offering three retreats for Autumn 2020, offering expert fitness, yoga and floral tuition, accompanied by nutritious, delicious meals prepared by favourite London chefs.

Oat Kitchen: Eat well, keep well

Seasonal, sustainable, plant-based nutrition

Oat Kitchen uses seasonal produce, and sources organic, local ingredients wherever possible, creating nutritious, delicious meals that maintain your energy levels throughout the day and form an intrinsic part of your retreat.

Sharing their love of plant-based food — and their recipes — Oat Kitchen inspires guests to expand their culinary skills on their return home, and offer private and group cooking classes, by arrangement, during retreats.

For Autumn 2020, Oat Kitchen are providing menus for our Borrowed Light Floral and Fabrice Tyack Hiit Yoga retreats.

Lighthaus Café:
London Chic in Southwest France

Lighthaus Cafe’s Jen Weiss’s menus for Mukund’s retreat bring her East London café, where the capital’s most demanding critics drop by for her famous brunches, to L’Orangerie’s kitchens.

Her healthy, nutritionally balanced dishes are prepared with fresh local ingredients from Duras’s market, providing plenty of energy to sustain you through Mukund’s workouts, with a menu that brings the world’s finest cuisine to your plate.

Enjoy the best of London’s contemporary fusion cuisine next to our pool in the morning or overlooking  Chateau Duras, with its spectacular nighttime illuminations, from our terrace.
