A welcoming, peaceful sanctuary for all in need of rest
Stay in a cosy, environmentally friendly chalet
Enjoy our light, bright Eco-Cabin; well insulated and double-glazed.
There is one double room and one twin. The beds are wooden with comfortable non-sprung mattresses. Organic towels and soft cotton bedding are provided.
Tea and home-baking is provided.
There is a spacious shower-room with basin and WC, which drain into a Phytoépuration bed for waste water. The light-filled lounge is open plan with a welcoming wood-stove in the centre, and with a kitchen area to the side.
The sunny covered terrace offers a peaceful space to read or stargaze.
The premises are a totally meat-free, alcohol-free and smoke-free zone, as we want all our guests to feel great from the inside out.
The forest surrounding the chalet provides privacy and peace. In fact, the nearest building is our own house at 45m distant. The hamlet is 100m away through the forest, or 240m via the track. To the south of our house, the nearest house is 450m and the next house westerly is at – 2,700m.
Please note that the inside of the chalet is the only space within a mile or so that is cat-free. Our opportunistic predators would love the opportunity to hunt inside but please keep them out. Thank you.
As of this year, we are in partnership with a local gîte owning couple. In fact, the premises are only 240m from the chalet.
We spoke to the couple about hiring their gîte which is a house with kitchen, bathroom(s), living-room, bedrooms, attics et al, and they indicated how many beds they could get in the attic. Quantity is not what we are looking for. So they reconsidered and said that part of the house where they live is separate from their own living quarters. Ideal.
Access is via the courtyard to a dining-room on the ground floor. Here, there is a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
On the first floor is a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Across another room (with 2 single beds and a bunk bed) is another double bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
We could not believe it when they showed the property to us. It is at the cul-de-sac end of the hamlet so has the least traffic (which is only the daily post van anyway).
Cuisine during your Retreat
We provide high-vibe meals using the best ingredients; organic food, locally sourced and home grown where possible.
Jenny has always been passionate about food and has a wide repertoire, inspired by her travels. Her imagination and flair cannot be over-emphasised. Derek contributes with his delicious tortillas, dahls, cookies, and breads. You’re in for a treat.
Breakfast is buffet-style to allow flexibility – whether you enjoy it at 6 or 9am.
Lunch is around 12-1pm or thereabouts, to flow with the end of an activity or session. Similarly, dinner starts 5-6pm according to the flow of the day.
Your retreat day will conclude after dinner and a cuppa, allowing time to process and integrate the day’s events; unless we’ve scheduled an evening activity.
Surroundings and activities
No need to take the car, the Parc Naturelle is right on our doorstep! Go out the front gate, turn left and you’re there. You can walk for miles, totally immersing your senses.
