Host your course with us

Nestled against the famous city of Richelieu in the heart of the Loire Valley, Le Grippault is a charming 19th-century manor surrounded by 21 hectares of lush forest and grassland. If you’re looking for an easily accessible rural location with all services within easy reach, Le Grippault is the perfect spot for your course or event. Our manor can host 8 to 15 persons, with eight renovated double bedrooms with attached bathrooms. The salon and salle à manger with adjacent renovated kitchen are at your disposal. A third large multifunctional space is perfect for meetings or exhibitions.

On our grounds, we have a permaculture garden that provides our visitors with fresh vegetables, herbs, and berries. As seasoned course and event creators with a large local and international network, we can also help you design (elements of) your residential course at Le Grippault. If you’re looking for a course location full of personality and charm, with plenty of nature around to study, work, and relax, we’d love to discuss the possibilities with you.
