Our review : the detox retreat at Domaine de Canaille

Domaine de Canaille is one of the most beautiful properties on the Côte d’Azur, nestled in the shelter of Cap Canaille in the bay of Cassis. Several times a year, owner Marie Treppoz organizes detox stays. On the program: hikes in the Calanques, guided bike outings, yoga and fitness classes, and evening lectures on health topics. Géraldine Lescs, our wellness expert, took part in the last retreat, both as an actor and a spectator. She tells you all about it!

A retreat to disconnect and reboot

Marie Treppoz is passionate about everything to do with nutrition, well-being and health. Hyper-dynamic, welcoming and a true host to its participants, it offers disconnection and total “reboot” stays. In just a few hours, she can create extremely warm and caring group cohesion. The proof is that as soon as the retreat is over, everyone is looking forward to the next one.

During the retreat, Marie offers a very tasty vegan diet, thanks to the talents of her expert vegan chef, Ariane Roques.

Room with view

The Domaine de Canaille alone is well worth a visit. It’s along a narrow, steep path that you reach the estate, which is truly on the cliffside. A large, sober gate opens onto a sublime courtyard that leads to a mansion covered in Virginia creeper. You can make out the sea and the light in the distance, and you’re drawn into this majestic place.

Then you step through the doorway and find yourself immersed in this ocean of light. Everywhere, it flows through the huge bay windows and into the living rooms, warming and illuminating. The ground floor of the estate features superb lounges for hushed conversation, contemplation, reading or music, including a beautiful grand piano.

On the first floor, you’ll find a kitchen that opens onto a huge dining room, which also overlooks the sea and the 500 m² terrace. It’s impossible to resist the call of this balcony overlooking the deep blue sea. Just below, the Arène beach can be reached in just 5 minutes on foot via a small private path.

Before heading out to the pool, let’s put our suitcases down in one of the 12 guest rooms. A majestic staircase leads to the upper floors. From double rooms to suites with sea views, the choice is yours. Spread over two floors, almost all rooms have direct sea views. The sober, chic decor is a tribute to the Mediterranean.

Another lounge upstairs lets you relax or let your mind wander in front of this spectacular view. This was Géraldine ‘s office for her private consultations during the retreat!

Once you’ve packed your bags, it’s time to discover the pool. It’s heated, so you can enjoy it all year round, or almost.

Support before and after your detox and well-being cure

Before you arrive for your detox, Marie gives you her recommendations for starting your dietary descent. An essential preparation for the very healthy diet you’ll observe during your stay.

During your stay, you’ll have the opportunity to book massages that will deepen your process of reconnecting with your body and enhancing your sense of well-being. A free massage is included with every stay booked with Luxe Wellness Club!

The spa is punctuated by outdoor activities that allow you to explore the surrounding area on foot or by bike. Even the less athletic or the most tired of us all loved these excursions and came back refreshed.

At the end of each day, you need to do some physical activity to help your body detoxify. The fitness class will get you sweating, the vinyasa yoga class will help to rebalance your body and listen to its needs.

In the evening, a lecture is given on a health topic. During Géraldine’s stay, we discussed healthy eating, naturopathic profiles and the benefits of cardiac coherence for stress management. Themes that gave rise to highly enriching exchanges for all concerned.

At the end of the cure, everyone leaves regenerated both by the good habits put in place during the stay, and by the group’s great energy and the happy benevolence that has been established between everyone.

Marie sends all her participants a comprehensive email summary of the retreat, including a list of healthy products to have in the back of their cupboards, her own healthy recipes as well as those of the dishes tasted during the retreat, documentaries and videos to discover or rediscover, recommendations for dietary supplements and more. She takes care of her customers right to the end, and it’s a real pleasure to feel supported in this detox process.

3 days of absolutely delicious vegan cooking

It’s impossible to talk about this stay without mentioning the cuisine offered during the detox. It’s not a complete fast, but a light diet, with no excitants or products with inflammatory consequences. You become vegan for 3 days, if you’re not already, and it’s a real joy.

Marie Treppoz relies on the expertise of Ariane Roques, a passionate naturo-vegan chef with a taste for healthy food and beautiful dishes.

The tables are magnificent and the flavours absolutely amazing. You’ll discover, for example, steamed hempfu or hemp tofu with brown sauce, raw mushroom salad, mimosa-style tofu with creamy parsley sauce. You’ll even get a delicious dessert for your last meal – effort pays off!

Conviviality is the watchword at Domaine de Canaille. The early risers happily take part in preparing the juices for the extractor and the fruit to accompany the chia, banana and coconut milk pudding.

Our feeling

You don’t have to go to the ends of the earth to enjoy an unforgettable human and wellness experience. Detox cures at Domaine de Canaille are a must on the Mediterranean shores, and Marie is sure to make your stay one to remember. We particularly appreciated the friendly atmosphere created in the group, which enabled us to detox completely. The holistic approach of these cures and the sumptuous site that welcomes you make this a beautiful, intimate address that we warmly recommend.
