Spiritual retreats

Whether believer or agnostic, most of us will at some point search for the meaning of life. In the Middle Ages confession and prayer were the main purpose of religious sites but over time, societal changes have entrusted them with other missions. More and more people are looking for a break from the fast pace of modern life, through different forms of spirituality, meditation, yoga...
The Villes Sanctuaires Association can assist with organising your spiritual journey, from a few days to several weeks, alone or as part of a group. 

Sports activities

Equally as important as enjoying silence or taking a holiday, sport is an effective way of soothing the mind.

The Villes Sanctuaires Association organises many sports activities throughout its 19 destinations. Hiking, skiing, cycling or mountain biking, walking in the forest, water sports... All have positive effects on the mind, just like tasting the delicious local cuisine on offer throughout France.

Why is spiritual healing so important: 

  • Find inner peace
  • Great health benefits 
  • A sense of well-being and renewed energy
  • Find answers and try new paths in life 
  • Make new friends
  • Try new activities outside your own comfort zone
  • See life differently, with new enthusiasm
  • Rekindle your faith

Don’t hesitate to contact the Sanctuaries and Tourist Offices of The Villes Sanctuaires Association to obtain further information on cultural events, sightseeing, music festivals... elevating the soul and filling it with emotional sustenance.
