Versaille ~Gardens & Palace
Discover the estate
The Palace of Versailles, whose origins date back to the seventeenth century, was successively a hunting lodge, a seat of power and, from the nineteenth century, a museum. With the gardens and the Palaces of Trianon, the park of the Château de Versailles spreads over 800 hectares.
Water features of all kinds are an important part of French gardens, even more so than plant designs and groves. At Versailles, they include waterfalls in some of the groves, spurts of water in the fountains, and the calm surface of the water reflecting the sky and sun in the Water Parterre or the Grand Canal.
Giverny ~ Monet Gardens ~ Painting Class
The Domaine de la Corniche: the perfect hotel for a quiet getaway
The Domaine de la Corniche looks like an elegant mansion. It rises within a chalk cliff and dominates the Seine, but also the countryside of Giverny. Due to its remote access, it offers absolute calm, perfect for disconnected holidays , but connected to nature. A total of 43 rooms make up the estate and are scattered around the castle.
Describe your image
Guests have access to an indoor swimming pool and a hammam at a reduced rate and massage treatments are also available, upon reservation.
Built in early 20th century by order of King Leopold II of Belgium, the Domaine de la Corniche is set high in the hills overlooking the surrounding river and valley.
Le Panoramique, the Domaine de la Corniche's Michelin-starred restaurant serves creative dishes based on traditional French cuisine with local seasonal products and offers panoramic views.
Le 20 du Domaine, a bistro-style restaurant offering a selection of wines, is also available on site.
You will have plenty of time to just sit back and relax or take advantage of the local faire of Giverny. A canoe or pontoon boat excursion on the Seine, tennis or a game or two.
You might even be ready to write that next chapter of your life or venture out to create another painting.
Imagine diving into your creative being, finding a new found love for creativity and believe you have the power and brilliance to manifest anything!
A private writing coaching is available for thirty minutes to all guests.
"Traveling with Gloria is always an inspiring and magnificent journey.
She is a truly gifted retreat leader. Her passion for travel and for
guiding and coaching people shine through like a brilliant sun in all
that she does. Unique, beautiful places that are out of the way and
not commonly visited is one of the signature pieces of any retreat or
travel journey, along with deeply meaningful, spiritual,
energetic havens of peace and power. Gloria's retreats are deep
healing for body, mind and soul, inspiring creativity, igniting
passion and awakening purpose in those who attend. I have traveled
with Gloria many times now, and each time is better than the last." ~CLT
"I have owned and operated a retreat center on the Sunshine Coast of BC for over a decade. I have rarely come across a facilitator so powerfully graceful, inviting everyone's mastery to come out and be seen and celebrated. Gloria has a special way of embodying the compassion, kindness, strength and respect in whatever she shares. You have just discovered the pot of gold!" J. Field.
"Gloria is compassionate and is full of wisdom. She will help you explore a deeper part of yourself and consider new ways in which to become the author of your own life. Gloria is the ultimate spirit guide"
