Welcome to our little corner of paradise, Las Coumeilles.

We are located right on the Sentier Cathar walking route in the beautiful southwest of France.   We offer luxury bed and breakfast and evening meals, using local organic produce and vegetables from our garden.

From our tranquil gardens you can see two of the legendary Cathar castles and within 40 minutes drive there is a whole world of history and nature to discover.  Or just sit quietly here and take in the panoramic views while enjoying the pool, hot tub and sauna.  In the winter there are five ski areas within reach and in our south facing valley you can still soak up some sunshine.  We’re hoping to have the pool working year-round with its new sliding cover and eco-heater,

And don’t forget that the Tour de France passes near to us every year in July.  We can help you to organise to ride some of the route or just watch as they whoosh by!

If you want to relax and unwind or get out there and enjoy nature, we think there’s no better place than our stunning valley.

We also offer retreat hosting with full board accommodation, as well as space for workshops and healing courses in a totally peaceful setting.


Las Coumeilles Retreats

For 2019 we have several retreats planned that are open to both Silver Tent and the wider public:

In March we will be offering a Silent Retreat for those looking for a deeper level of connection with self and nature

In April (subject to confirmation) Francesca Cassini is running one of her signature retreats with us

In July I will be co-hosting with the wonderful Lara Foord a week of Yoga and relaxation

September brings the Artists’ Escape retreat with spaces for 4 Silver Synergy members to come and recharge their creative batteries

We’re also hoping to host a couple of weekend Cheese making courses after I went on one of Louisa’s fabulous weekends myself in 2018.

Or just book in for a holiday and let the cares of the busy world slip away….


If you’d like to run a retreat with us please get in touch – taking bookings now for 2020.
