Top 5 Eco-Resorts for a Wellness Retreat in France

 

France has long attracted visitors for its ambiance, wonderful climatic conditions and the numerous areas of outstanding beauty. Both modern and ancient, it is steeped in history and renowned for its cultural attraction. Cobbled streets weave their way around luxury hotels, shops and restaurants, but there is always a quiet healthy corner of the ‘real France’ where to explore some stylish seaside eco-wellness resorts, private beach clubs, shopping, dining experiences and more all year round.

Among those lovely eco-friendly destinations, we have made a list using our expertise as eco-health practitioners to assess and recognise which resorts are considerably working towards a toxin-free environment such as specific types of endocrine disrupting chemicals commonly found in spas, kitchens, and housekeeping products among others.

Since chemical pollution reduction is what motivates us here at Longevity Escapes, we believe that is our duty as experts in eco-wellness travel, to provide our guests with a real mental and physical detox holiday experience at one of the best eco-friendly and sustainable destinations in France.

From luxury yoga, fitness and wellness retreats in the French Riviera to more affordable resorts, there is something for every taste!
