Why Activity Retreats Are The New Hen Favourite

Posted by Hannah Carrier on June 7 2017.

Hen parties can be so varied these days, from size of group to the length of the celebrations and their preference of activities. There are parties, photoshoots, boozy breaks, spa weekends and so much more, making choosing what’s right for you increasingly difficult. The truth is that these celebrations are meant to be fun and not stressful. Here’s why you should consider a hen retreat…


Time Away

The excitement of waiting in the departure lounge and travelling somewhere new is enough to chase all your troubles away. The South of France is a particularly good place to go. It’s lush in colour and beauty—the perfect views to soothe and uplift!


No Distractions

With no distractions at a retreat, you can invest some quality time into your hen girls and adventure into new activities together such as an aerial or pole fitness course. Live and love in the moment.


New Sights, New Experiences

Experience the sun and heat of the South of France, quality catering, a relaxed atmosphere and the chance to devote a few days not just to celebrations but also to a new skill that you might not have picked up at home. Aerial arts, in particular, for example, is incredibly rare in the UK but we can think of nothing better than the feeling of flying below blue skies!


You will commemorate this special time with a hen break that’s unforgettable for everyone when you book an activity retreat.
