We are a family who are passionate about yoga, good vegetarian food and nature and that is why we offer all three to our guests. We want our guests to leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated yet stimulated and energised.

La Châtaigne (Sweet Chestnut) is our holiday home which is known as a gîte in France. It is a traditional 1840's rural farmhouse all on one level. It sleeps upto 6 people with two comfortable, light bedrooms - one double and one twin. The cozy living room has two sofa beds. There is a spacious kitchen/dining area with French doors that open out onto the elevated wooden terrace - from where you can absorb the smells, sounds and sights of nature. There is one bathroom in the gîte and two others available outside in the courtyard. There is parking for 2 cars next to the gite and the entrance is via a private courtyard where there is an additional patio area.

Come and be fully immersed in nature and really embrace the surrounding countryside. Relax on the shaded terrace or soak up the rays in the south facing courtyard or by the pool. Stroll in the nearby oak and chestnut forests and plunge yourself in the unspoilt River 'Viaur' just on our doorstep.
