Special Pandemic Notice:
Currently all retreats are still available on an affordable, bespoke basis only to individuals, couples and small groups who know each other. In other words, we will only host retreats for people belonging to the same bubble. We will not bring people you do not know into your retreat space and, as hosts, we will respectfully keep our distance.

For fitness and wellbeing, for fun and companionship, for health and happiness
Walking for Wellbeing, rambling through the rolling Razès, living and breathing in the goodness of the great outdoors, enjoyably burning a few calories to boot. Distances will vary between 8 and 12 kilometres depending on the particular trail.
For improved health and happiness, inner peace and calm
Spending time outdoors, pursuing gentle, nature-based activities that have been scientifically proven to improve health and wellbeing. Walking distances will not exceed four kilometres.
Longer Wellness Retreats (four or more days):
We offer several types of walking retreat throughout the year. Whether you enjoy following gentle footpaths meandering through unspoilt and richly diverse countryside or exploring the ruins of the mighty, historic Cathar castles, multiple options are available right here from the doorstep. You may be seeking inner peace ambling silently through a forest or near a lake, or revel in walking in the company of others. You may be looking for a little guidance or training to help you walk your own life story on your own Camino...
In these retreats, the focus is on spending time bringing yourself back into a harmonious balance with the natural world because finding time for yourself and for communing with nature are important to your health and sense of wellbeing. Daily practices can include gentle yoga flow practice, mindful walking and walking meditations in nature and wellbeing treatments such as massage or reflexology.
Through a series of workshops, critical feedback, space to create and discussion, resident author and philosopher, Bob Norton, will encourage you to delve a little deeper, stimulating your unique creativity, bringing your story, book or poems to life in your own inimitable way. Only you can write your story and we can help you find inspiration and get you into the zone to do it. You decide whether you want to do your creative writing retreat alone or as part of a small group. Writing retreats are available throughout the year.
Retreat Group Sizes and Discounts
To ensure a deep-rooted sense of wellbeing, we keep retreat numbers small (max. 6) so that no-one gets lost in a crowd. You can even come solo, with a friend or small group. Early bird discounts are available when you book 3 months or more in advance.
