Events & Groups - Be inspired here!


Chez Arran is perfect for group holidays, celebrations, retreats and courses with accommodation for up to 20 adults in the spring and autumn seasons (March to June and Mid-September - Mid October.) We have a great choice of communal spaces outside and indoor sessions can be held in Maison la Montagne for up to 10 people. If you would like to come in the height of summer please do ask, but we book up quickly in this season. If you need more audio visual seminar facilities, these can be arranged within a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk. There is also a large park and cafe opposite the thermal spa within 7 minutes walk. 


The garden - tranquil space looking out on spectacular scenery (1,500m square)

Outside we have the garden divided into three distinct areas where a marquie and seating areas can be placed. This enables three separate groups to find their own space or discuss and re convene. There are two shaded relaxation areas "Thai cushion" and "the Nook." If you haven't booked the whole place and come in the summer there may be other guests around the pool. Our garden backs onto wild wood land and Ornolac Ussat les Bains grottes are within easy walking distance as well as a range of paths leading into the mountain side. We have various bench style tables that can be used and chairs. 


Yoga space and pool

There is a wooden terrage area where it is possible to hold a yoga class for 6 people and of course the surrounding grass can be used. The pool is 7m x 4m. We also works with Corinne a qualified yoga practitioner so if you would like a lesson or two as part of your event please do let us know.


Meals and catering

We can offer this through a trekking company and have local caterers available to assist. We have a 9-seater minibus on site. We are able to recommend local restaurants using local produce from their own farm and also giving an insight into local culture and production techniques.
