Château de Montjoie

Château de Montjoie is Rafia Willmott’s and Mark Kimchi’s exclusive private health retreat in the south of France.



Owing to the avalanche of success that the Eliane restaurants, the cookbook and the UK retreats have had in the last few years, Eliane and Evelyn’s Mark have embarked on their next big idea, but this idea is not big, it’s rather enormous. Literally.


Château de Montjoie is a 16th century castle in the Cevennes – the mountainous glory of France in the south. It has been renovated luxuriously and has many features that add to the enjoyment of any retreat reservation.

Mark Kimchi holds the Evelyn’s Mark Process there several times a year and for the lucky few who are able to book on, as spaces are taken quickly, the experience is all the more rewarding and memorable.


The Cevennes, while being remote so as to be stunning and relaxing, is still plentiful in its offering of activities to do and nature to explore.


Set on the edge of the tiny village of Chamborigaud, in the Languedoc region, Château de Montjoie is a beautiful 16th Century castle built by Captain De Leyris.


The Château is nestled in a five-acre park in the Cevennes mountains and has the river Luech flowing along its boundary. It was built in 1575 and comprises three beautiful towers with turrets. The castle has retained all of its charm including its original features and the decor of the interiors has been carefully selected to marry the style of the Château perfectly.

There is a substantial terrace around the Château for dining, and set within the private grounds is a large heated outdoor swimming pool.


The small village of Chamborigaud has a tennis court adjacent to the Château, shopping, bars and restaurants and has many beautiful walks and drives. The area is renowned for its wild boar, chestnuts and mushrooms and sublime scenery.

When the Evelyn’s Mark Process is hosted at Château de Montjoie the experience for guests is lavishly enhanced because of the setting and because of the abundant additional space within the grounds.


With the retreat being longer by a few days than in the UK, guests have more time to spend enjoying the facilities and the breath-taking surroundings that are afforded.


Evelyn’s Mark now has a limited number of places available for its Process retreats in the summer and autumn of this year. If you are interested in booking a Process with Evelyn’s Mark, please click below further details.
