a hidden gem

We’ve “discovered” a unique part of the south of France that’s just a little on the wild side, steeped in mystical ancient history, and as beautiful as you can imagine.

A rich, luscious landscape of rolling hills covered in forests, streams,
and grassy meadows lined with wild flowers.

Valleys are filled with vineyards, rivers, fields of sunflowers and wheat,
and tiny villages sporting exquisite yet slightly wild gardens.

Where gorgeous chateau ruins abound amidst a fascinating mystical history.

Where you can explore hot pools, caves, hilltops and canyons,
enjoy superb off and on-road cycling,
hiking,
kayaking,
rafting,
climbing, 
and canyoning.

haven

And here in this almost-forgotten land, we’ve created a little haven, where you can retreat into your down-time and rejuvenate. 

A space where we support the experience of cooking, reading,
yoga, 
meditation, writing, drawing and painting.

We provide yoga equipment (including mats, blocks, blankets and straps), and a list of local classes and teachers. Outside in the back garden a large wooden deck provides mat space enough for up to eight people (comfortably).

For the yogic philosophers we also provide a library of yogic scriptures and other texts from wisdom traditions around the world.

For the adventurous chefs we've got a 5-burner Glem stove and oven, and all the equipment you could need to cook up a storm with delicious local ingredients.
