Nature & Therapies self-care retreat

We invite you to join us for a weekend (or longer!) of nature and self-care in our beautiful new centre “La Source” in rural Ardèche in the sunny south of France. This is not a workshop. We are not going to teach anything. We are not going to make you work! This is a true retreat: time out for recreation - re-creation - building yourself by letting nature nourish your essence.

This is what a time out should be, not an endless round of tourist attractions and spending, but a time to stop, slow down and really feed your soul. We all need this. We all crave this and in today's hectic world that need is greater than ever. This is a time for you, a time to reconnect with who you truly are.

The Venue

Hidden away in a rural paradise yet easily accessible by plane, train or car, our beautiful old stone farmhouse offers spaciousness, peace and tranquility. Comfortable rooms, a swimming pool, outdoor dining, woodland, plus hiking trails, waterfalls, picturesque villages and sacred sites within a short distance.  The site has a special powerful healing magic with perfect feng shui in the landscape and deep associations with ancient Celtic and early Christian spirituality. The water at “La Source” comes from a deep well, holding the purest energy we have ever come across in liquid form. The perfect place to relax, touch down, connect with nature and connect with yourself.
