Your seaside seminar in the South of France


in Occitania
Feet in the water

Although a seminar ought to be about working and concentrating hard, you might as well make the most of an amazing setting and, while you’re on a break, take a dip in the Mediterranean or a stroll along the beach. All Roussillhotel hotels are located in special environments - on a verdant peninsula, inside a nature reserve and bird sanctuary, at the heart of the old town of Collioure and its shady alleys, on the beach at Argelès-sur-Mer or a stone’s throw from the canals of Sète. All of these sites offer a wonderful combination of Mediterranean authenticity, with the charm of the unspoilt south and the typical warm Roussillhotel welcome, which is a result of both family ties and the kind of professionalism inherited from the French hotel tradition.


A seminar
in the Pyrénées-Orientales region

The Pyrénées-Orientales is one of the sunniest departments in Metropolitan France, both in summer and in winter. It lies next to the Mediterranean and has managed to preserve its living environment along with a “natural” authenticity, as have its inhabitants, who are joyfully direct but always welcoming. Canet en-Roussillon, Saint-Cyprien and Argelès-sur-Mer are a long way from the "overdeveloped" Côte d’Azur and have retained that wild colour that has made the reputation of the Catalan towns. It’s a strong identity that you’ll fall in love with the very first time you stay!


Collioure, the painters’ town
and a piece of world heritage

Collioure is famous for its lighthouse, its traditional port area and its long relationship with the world of painting with Matisse, Derain, Terrus, Maillol, etc. The town breathes Fauvism and wherever you look there is a mixture of the anecdotal and the truly historic, a reminder that some of the greatest moments in the history of painting took place on its beach and quays, in its streets and its restaurants. For a group of tourists, it’s such a delight to leave your suitcases in the heart of the town, at the Casa Pairal or at the Mas des Citronniers, so you can see it at its best, wander around and then head out into the rest of the department to explore its cultural heritage or its food or sports.


Seminar in Hérault: Montpellier and Sète

If, for organisational reasons, you’re looking for a jumping-off point that's more central but just as Mediterranean, choose Sète or Montpellier in the Hérault region. Two destinations, each with its own ambiance. For a working day in a town with particularly good, comprehensive transport links, the Royal Hôtel is in the very heart of Montpellier, a stone’s throw from the TGV Saint-Roch railway station and the tram which goes to the airport. For longer seminars, you can stay at the Port Marine hotel in Sète. Large rooms to work in, an elegant beach ambiance and the unique setting of the “little Venice of Languedoc”, offering a combination of charm and efficiency!


Marrakech :
sunny seminars

For a few days in the sun in the heart of the Palmeraie in Marrakech and near the region’s large golf courses, the Domaine des Remparts offers you a gateway to North Africa, so near and yet such a different world. The hotel offers all the services you’d expect from a five-star with two restaurants, a spa, a swimming pool, a fitness room and comfortable and especially pleasant seminar rooms. Groups of golfers are welcome and will find that the Domaine des Remparts offers the “perfect base camp” for visiting the most famous courses in the region.
