Have you heard of bleisure breaks? The word ‘bleisure’ is a portmanteau of ‘business’ and ‘leisure’―in other words, a combination of work and pleasure, and it’s the kind of niche travel that’s becoming more and more popular!
There are a number of ways to take a bleisure break―either by adding a few vacation days on to a business trip or, in the 2022 version, extending a weekend at Espace 4 Saisons by teleworking from the comfort of your hotel room!
Here are some great reasons to book a bleisure trip with us and at the same time, put a little zip into your daily routine!
Imagine how relaxing it would be to enjoy a natural setting, while at the same time, getting your work done! Espace 4 Saisons is situated at the base of Mont-Orford amid a soothing landscape of woodland and mountains―restful surroundings in which to conduct video calls and phone calls.
Reliable, high-speed WiFi, a clean, spacious area to work at your laptop, a large-screen TV and a Nespresso coffee machine with unlimited supplies. Are we describing your dream office? Actually, that’s exactly what we offer, in our rooms, lofts and suites. Hey―you could even reward yourself with a nap after a long, arduous conference call!
Certain units have fireplaces to make your office-away-from-home even cozier! Other units have fully-equipped kitchens and washer/dryers, should you plan on staying for an extended time.
When noon rolls around, order lunch in your room or take a break and head for the Bistro 4 Saisons or the Burger Pub, two excellent eateries within the resort complex. Eating in a dining room can give you a welcome break in your workday!
Do you have a gap in your busy schedule? Is so, take advantage of your downtime to pop by our entertainment room where you’ll find a pool table, video games, and a foosball table (among other diversions).
And don’t forget to pack your swimsuit or trunks. We have an indoor/outdoor heated swimming pool, as well as a jacuzzi. Nothing is more refreshing than gazing at the mountains while you’re taking a dip!
Another great idea! Get all your work done in the morning, then take the afternoon off to pamper yourself with some spa treatments at the Dôme de Morphée (also part of the hotel). Book a Swedish massage, therapeutic massage, or a lymphatic drainage―guaranteed to make any tension melt away, under the capable hands of our professional therapists. Fancy a beauty treatment? The spa offers those as well!
At 4 p.m. on the dot, leave your office-away-from-home (i.e. your hotel room!) then head for Magog’s downtown―a couple of minutes’ drive away. Walk along the shoreline of Lake Memphremagog or attend a performance at the Vieux Clocher de Magog (a converted church, now a theatre), or embark on an adventure in the dark, by taking an evening alpine hike at Mont-Orford.
Now―aren’t all those just terrific ways to enjoy teleworking?
