Our team building activities for unforgettable seminars

team-building-equipeWhether you want sporting and recreational activities or relaxation and exploration, Vacances Bleues Business offers you a wide range of incentive options for your company seminar. The only thing missing in our hotels is you!

While the main purpose of seminars is to work, they nevertheless afford an excellent opportunity for your teams to come together around shared values during their stay. And when the serious stuff is finished for the day, shared leisure time lets your people bond and fosters team spirit.

This is why our Vacances Bleues Business hotels organise a range of outstanding on- and off-site team building activities. Many of our hotels, such as the Jardins de l’Atlantique in Vendée and the Club Plein Sud in Hyères offer their own excursion service. This means that our teams can help tailor your seminars to suit your specific needs and offer a range of activities in cooperation with various partners.

To follow is a brief description of how our expertise in event organisation can help liven up your seminar in France, from Paris to Deauville and from Menton to Sables d’Olonne

team-building-sportSeminar incentive: Make Way for Sport!

What better way to foster team spirit than sport? To help your teams bond outside the meeting room, swap the computers for tennis racquets, hiking shoes, paddles or a pair of skis. In the areas around Villa Marlioz, Château Laval and Villa du Lac, there are some magnificent landscapes to be discovered on rambles or mountain bike outings.
From traditional sports, such as golf, football and volleyball, to the most extreme, such as paragliding, bungee jumping, canyoning and jet skiing, anything is possible with Vacances Bleues Business.
The team building activities offered at our hotels can also take place on the water, be it sea or river. Take to the water with your team and try canyoning or rafting in Nice or Hyères, or speed over the waves on a jet ski at the Jardins de l’Atlantique.
For enthusiasts of extreme sports, you could even try bungee jumping or paragliding at our hotel in Menton.
Horse riding aficionados will be thrilled by the long horseback rides available at the Château de Camiole or the Jardins de Deauville.
And in winter, our Hotel Belle Plagne 2100 welcomes you to all the joys of the mountains for your seminar at altitude, with a range of activities that includes logging, nocturnal skiing and torchlit descents or even spending the night in an igloo!

team-building-insoliteGo for games and the unusual

During your seminar in the south of France – or elsewhere – take advantage of the excellent facilities on offer and try something completely out of the ordinary. Why not challenge your teams to an orienteering race or a treasure hunt? Or start up a flash mob or go paintballing? Or give them an adrenaline rush in a car rally?
At the Villa du Lac near Geneva, for example, you can arrange for a murder party, a kind of giant Cluedo game, trapper raids or even igloo building!
But we can also organise calmer activities for your people, such as wellness breaks in our hotel spas. Take the opportunity for a wellness break in our hotel spas at the Villa du Lac or the Jardins de l’Atlantique near Sables d’Olonne.

Evening team building activities

Round off your seminar in the south of France, Paris, or the mountains with an unforgettable evening. The Vacances Bleues Business hotels organise shows, dances and themed evenings with DJs or live performances, and even pool parties in summer.
At the Château de Camiole, enjoy a Mediterranean evening with barbecue and then go for a stroll around the evening market where you can buy local Provençal products. Alternatively, at the Jardins de l’Atlantique, you could organise a barbecue by the ocean.

For an upmarket evening incentive, our Menton hotels can take you to Monaco. Place your bets at the casino on the famous Rock before savouring a gourmet meal prepared for you by the best Michelin- starred chefs. There is indeed life after work; and some marvellous surprises too.
