Personalised Private Retreats in the French Pyrenees

 Pyrenees Mountains


"Most men pursue pleasure with such breathless haste that they hurry past it."  - Soren Kierkegaard

Mountain ARC Private Retreats are adapted according to your needs.

La Roulotte is for one person on a solitary retreat. The Stone Barn Studio is for up to two guests seeking a quiet space for a retreat or project. 

Guests of all accommodations can personalise their retreats as needed:

  • You can choose to have sessions of reflexology or head massage
  • You can designate the amount of social contact and communication desired. We are well set-up for silent retreats
  • You can join us in daily morning and evening meditation sessions
  • We can arrange a hot night time bath under the stars
  • Self-catered retreats can be supplemented with purchased organic bread, fruit and vegetables
  • Shopping can be organised

Guests of La Roulotte can further tailor their retreat by requesting:

  • One prepared mid-day meal per day (Special diets can be catered for)
  • A one week vegan or vegetarian food box consisting of local, seasonal and organic products 

We look forward to working with you to design the retreat that best suits your needs.
