Me, My Bag and I

Solo travel is an ever-growing trend because – let’s face it – the freedom of doing whatever you want, whenever you want, is rather appealing. Several hotels have started to adapt their offerings for guests who want to hit the road on their own, including Le Mas Candille in Mougins, South of France.


For travellers longing for an independent adventure, the five-star Relais & Chateaux property has tailor-made a new package – ‘Me, My Bag & I’. Research shows that more than a third of Britons holiday alone* and the hotel’s new initiative offers time away for solo self development, relaxation and a little indulgence.

Those booking the ‘Me, My Bag & I’ experience can enjoy some cultural inspiration with entry to the Musée d’Art Classique in Mougins. Home to a diverse collection of antiquities such as Roman, Greek and Egyptian sculpture, the museum also exhibits work by Picasso, Matisse, Dali, Andy Warhol, Antony Gormley and Damien Hirst.

For more physical stimulation, the package includes an hour’s personal training, which is tailored to the individual’s needs. Choose to work up a sweat in the hotel’s open-air gym or opt for a lower intensity workout such as Pilates or stretching. Then relax with a 60 minute treatment in the hotel’s spa.

Finally, replenish and refuel with a four-course evening meal at the hotel’s Michelin star Le Candille Restaurant, inclusive of wine, water and coffee. Guests can opt to dine with the views overlooking Grasse, or socialise with other single travellers at the communal dinner table.

Travelling solo has never been so easy and tempting.

The two-night package is on bed and breakfast basis in a classic single room, with buffet breakfast each morning, dinner on one evening and no single supplement charge. Airport transfers are included, as is access to the hotel’s outdoor spa facilities including a hydrotherapy pool, Jacuzzi, gym and sauna.Rates from 952 euros (£741) per person, not inclusive of international flights or Eurostar tickets.
