Le Freyche Retreat Centre

About us

Le Freyche is a 19th-century farmhouse that has recently been lovingly restored.

One of the joys of this retreat is the venue. Set in 1.5 hectares of land, Le Freyche has it's own heated pool open all summer.

The house sits on a small hill, overlooking two rivers that meet - no neighbors or busy roads on our doorstep - just the sound of the river and the birds.

We are 20 minutes from Foix Train Station, where there is a mainline station connected to Toulouse, which has an international airport. We are also 4 hours by car from Barcelona. Our nearest village is 5 minutes away - La Bastide de Serou.

Le Freyche is beautiful – lush, green, quiet, peaceful, clean and rejuvenating.

      La vie en rose

    I've had the pleasure of visiting Le Freyche on two separate occasions for a week-long mindfulness retreat. From the moment of reaching out to Emma and her family, you are welcomed as friends of the family. The facilities offer a charming, rustic yet supremely comfortable rural retreat. The quintessential french style farmhouse - beams abound. There are lots of different rooms to move between, inside and outside - spaces that offer shelter, social and solitude moments and a mountain forest to wander through. This part of France offers lush green nature and Le Freyche is nestled into the mountainside that nourishes the heart and mind. The sounds of the river, birds, cow bells all serve to bring you back to the present moment. The food is wholesome and comforting - the chilli and key lime pie - delish! A treat to experience and re-experience. I look forward to returning again soon.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Desire to learn more meditation practices, spend more time in spiritual community. Heather
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
