Board meetings

Annual meetings among C-level executives and directors are where strategic decisions about the future of a company are made. Renting a luxury villa or castle to hold a board meeting over a few days has many upsides and will delight your guests as well as benefit your company.

Organizing a board meeting away

Organizing your company’s board meeting away is a chance to gather all board members for a few days, ensuring that they will be fully available to steer your company in the right direction.

Creative thinking and fresh ideas

When meeting over a longer period of time, attendees can alternate between formal meetings with numbers and presentations and informal sessions that encourage creative thinking and fresh ideas. A board of directors meeting typically involves big questions that require some distance, and for which a change of location can be highly valuable.

Best places to hold a board meeting

 The venue will set the tone of your board meeting. Choosing an elegantly furnished villa with its own swimming pool and access to a golf course, rather than a standard meeting room, will help members of the board relax, focus, think out of the box, and make the best tactical decisions for your company.

This is where we can help: Petit Chateau offers a range of luxury villas and chateaux with outstanding views and state-of-the art amenities that are the perfect setting for a board meeting. Some of our castles can be booked with all-inclusive packages including meeting rooms and tech as well as full catering services.

Organizing a board of directors meeting away from your company’s headquarters is also an opportunity for attendees to spend time together in an informal setting. Treat them to a luxury stay at a Mediterranean villa to encourage networking around the pool or in the many outdoor spaces. Fostering connections in that way will ensure that board members can come together to make the best decisions for your business in difficult times.
