Gardoussel Retreat in France

Gardoussel Retreat is a beautiful haven in the south of France offering yoga, creative writing and personal development retreats – residential and full board and with home-made vegetarian meals.

Gardoussel Retreat offers Ayurveda and yoga holidays, writing workshops, gîtes and unstructured residential stays. Set in the lush Cévennes mountains of France’s Languedoc region, Gardoussel ('guardian of the birds') is a magical oasis of calm in one of the most beautiful and untouched parts of France. A place of stunning simplicity and incredible natural beauty where guests can truly relax without the distractions of TV, crowds or traffic.

Surrounded by glorious pine and holm oak forests, Gardoussel is a picturesque hamlet set in 45 acres of private meadow and woodland in the heart of the Mediterranean mountains, 1 hour from Nimes and 2 hours from Montpellier.

Secluded yet within easy access to pretty villages, it offers the perfect opportunity to tune into nature and to ourselves. Served with delicious, home-made, organic vegetarian meals.
