Personalised Private Retreats in the French Pyrenees

Mountain ARCMountain ARC

is situated 830 metres high in the French Pyrenees,in the department of Ariège. South facing with spectacular views, Mountain ARC looks out at the mountains and down onto the large village of Massat. It is made up of 3.5 hectares of fields, woodland, streams and springs where nature has reclaimed land that had been abandoned after the last world war. It is a small forgotten corner.

The main wooden eco house has been constructed above an old stone barn, which was converted into a workshop, meditation space and studio/bed and breakfast accommodation in 2012, thus blending old with new. 

This beautiful property was bought by Judith Brown in 2011. As a therapist, she has seen the growing need for people to unplug from their electronic devices and escape to a quiet place for rest and renewal - to be alone,but at the same time feel safe and supported when necessary. Mountain ARC has no religious agenda, but there is no doubt this exceptional site has a strong spiritual quality, an ideal location for meditation and reflection.
 

 

A word from Judith Brown:

"I have spent my life in practical pursuits as a teacher, gardener, chef, reflexologist,and networker.  I am passionate about living ecologically, eating healthily with seasonal produce, and keeping fit both mentally and physically. It has been my dream to offer a personal retreat space and was delighted to launch Mountain ARC in the summer of 2014."
