Description

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 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 is a wood-heated hot tub, 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.

  • 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.

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.
