About Chez Vallée and Praana Wellness

It is our wish for people to find what it is they need at Chez Vallée, whether it is peace and quiet, fun and laughter, support and therapy. As an individual, a couple or a family/group of friends.

A place dedicated to connection and relaxation.

Chez Vallée is a restored distillery, built in 1881 and majestically nestled amongst the Cognac vines in the Charente Maritime. Our luxury petit chateau offers a variety of options depending on your needs. Maybe you are organising a holiday to bring the family together or a group of friends. Perhaps you have a special event coming up and you would like a private luxurious event centre for your guests and an event planner to take care of the organisation. Or, are you a retreat leader or group leader - to date we proved to be the perfect place for yoga retreats, writing retreats, art retreats, cycling and walking groups and, the all important wine and cognac tours.

Amanda, the owner is a Counselling Psychologist and yoga teacher. Praana Wellness is her business and she hosts guests for her retreats and therapy at certain times of the year. The retreats are varied and more information can be found under events here or at https://amandagrahampsychology.com/

Your wellbeing is our business (as is your privacy) and we want you to feel at home, to experience the wonderfully peaceful energy here at Chez Vallée . We have made it our goal to create a comfortable space that reflects the owners travels and cross-cultural experiences. Amanda & Fraser have been living and working in Africa, Asia and the Middle East since the 1980's.
