La Source

A magical space for retreat and renewal in southern France

Established as a retreat centre for wellbeing and meditation, La Source is a beautiful restored 17th century farmhouse nestled amid woods and vines in the Ardèche region of southern France.

Join one of our workshops, bring your own group here, come for a personal retreat or a truly relaxing holiday... the magic of La Source will change your life.

What makes La Source so special?


A true natural paradise

With 9 hectares of its own unspoiled land and views to distant mountains, La Source is set apart from the hustle and stress of the modern world in a little, wildlife rich valley... No television, no noise.... just peace and tranqulity.

Yet so easy to get to

La Source is indeed a true rural paradise, yet easily accessible by air, train or car from anywhere in Europe or the UK.

With everything you need

Comfortable traditionally styled rooms, a 45m2 workshop space, a saltwater swimming pool, extensive natural grounds, a range of therapies and treatments on site... everything you need for a relaxing and restoring stay. 

And delicious food

Our table d'hôte offers French country cuisine with a touch of the exotic.  We cater deliciously for all diets including vegan and gluten free and use organic local produce whenever possible.

The life blood of La Source is our source... a 180 m deep well from which the most pure water flows abundantly.  Its healing essence is in the taps, in the showers and in the swimming pool... everywhere, in fact.

What our guests say

La Source is a beautiful place, nestled in the confluence of hills and vineyards. The nature, the woods, the pool and the hospitality of Sandrine and Nick with their excellent cooking make the stay very relaxing.  I return to my life renewed in health, vigor and focus.

A wonderful place for retreat and reflection. The house and grounds are perfect for personal or group retreat or workshop and the owners hold the space well.

A beautiful, restful place - ideal for a retreat or if you’re looking for a B&B in a peaceful, reflective environment. Nick and Sandrine are great hosts; food is lovely too - locally sourced and prepared with heart!

​Beyond La Source


The stunning scenery, quaint villages, lively markets and prehistoric sites of the Ardèche and the Drôme are on our door step

Your hosts
Sandrine and Nick

We are an Anglo-French couple.  Through a series of real miracles in 2019 we found and then were able to acquire the old Ardechoise farm that we now call La Source.


We chose the name to reflect the importance of the deep well that nourishes the house and land, but also because we want this place to be a source of healing and renewal for all who come here.  And of course there is "The Source" in the sense of the ultimate ground of being....


Establishing La Source as a retreat centre is, for us, the culmination of decades of work in the  fields of natural health, emotional healing and spirituality. It is humbling to have such a wonderful location from which to share our gifts.


La Source is our home, but we consider ourselves to be the guardians, not the proprietors of this sacred land. Our vision is to work with the incredible natural energy of La Source to create very special environment where people can heal deeply  and really change their lives for the better.


We look forward to welcoming you at La Source very soon.
