Welcome to all yoga instructors & wellness coaches!
La Taillede is an ancient Catalan farm house in the French Pyrenees, sitting proudly at 950m altitude.
The property is framed by the sacred Mount Canigou, and has views all the way down to the Mediterranean sea. Operating successfully as a unique and unforgettable holiday destination since 2016, La Taillede offers beautiful ‘rustic luxury’ accommodation for small groups of 10-16.
Why not make La Taillede your next retreat location and experience the beauty and serenity of this incredibly special place?
La Taillede is a family-run ecological farm located within the high mountains of the Haut Vallespir, only one hours drive from the coast of the Mediterranean. Ideal for smaller groups looking for beautiful accommodation, peace and fresh mountain air in an authentic rural setting.
On the property there are many animals (used for permaculture, land clearing and petting) and an organic vegetable garden.
We can accommodate 15/16 people but suggest 11 guests plus the instructor would be the optimum number for yoga in the yurt. There would therefore also be accommodation available for your own team.
A yurt, a large indoor space and plenty of outside locations for practicing your activity.
There are 2 wood-heated hot tubs for your exclusive use -one on the high forest terrace of Gite Carlit, and one on Gite Canigou terrace, various hidden hammock spots in the forest and by the yurt, a choice of outside and inside dining areas plus fire pit for sociable evenings around the fire.
Coming soon (by Spring 2020, maybe before) sauna and cold plunge pool
This region is popular for hiking (the Trans-Pyrenean GR10 hiking route passes close to the farm), and we can suggest many walks to suit the group and provide maps and detailed descriptions.
Vegetarian/vegan catering options are available on site.
Framed by Mount Canigou, the beauty of La Taillede is its prominent mountain setting, the incredible views all the way down to the Mediterranean sea, the fresh air and being surrounded only by nature.
We are a 15 minute walk down a rural track from the quaint, traditionally French mountain village of Corsavy. Here there is a cafe/village shop, 2 restaurants and a post office.
Amelie les Bains, famous for its natural hot springs and spa treatments is 25 min drive away. Ceret is a beautiful town with lovely cafes and restaurants, a vibrant Saturday market and art museums; 30 minutes by car. The Mediterranean sea is a 1 hour drive away, and the Spanish border only 30 minutes by car.
