Regional Executives Retreat
Where We Are Staying
Villa Loyola, under the direction of the Jesuits of Sudbury, was built as a retreat centre in 1962 on 12 acres of land on the south shore of Long Lake. Located in the city’s south end, it is only a short drive from Sudbury’s downtown core.
Over the years, Villa Loyola has become a center for retreats and conferences frequented by a wide range of secular and religious groups. Entirely renovated in 1996, Villa Loyola now offers all the essential amenities for holding conferences, seminars, work groups and spiritual retreats in a peaceful atmosphere. Villa Loyola welcomes groups from various religious traditions, as well as people looking for a place of contemplation, spiritual renewal and prayer.
