About This Center

Welcome to De Tout Coeur Limousin

"A place to find and be yourself."

Creativity & wellbeing in the heart of rural France

De Tout Coeur Limousin is a centre for creative wellbeing retreat holidays and workshops in the heart of rural Limousin, central France.

Roughly translated De Tout Coeur means 'from the heart'/'wholeheartedly'. Our focus is on doing what we love, with love and enabling and supporting others to do the same. Choose from singing, holistic therapies, meditation, exploring the countryside or just taking the time for yourself.

We offer a space to relax, nurture and retreat in the peace and tranquility of the Creuse. Located in the Millevaches Natural Park, and just a short walk from the shores of Lac de Vassiviere it's easy to see why this area is known as the Lake District of France.

We are looking forward to sharing our programme of singing, meditation, reiki, yoga and holistic therapies with you, whether you choose a retreat holiday break or our selection of workshops and events.

Our retreat and event programme is updated throughout the year.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Venue Highlights

Spend time in the heart of nature

We are located in the heart of the protected Millevaches Natural Park - with walks and forest trails straight from the front door. The Limousin is renowned for its wildlife, unspoiled rolling countryside, forests and lakes (the region is often referred to as the Lake District of France). We are just minutes away from the shores of Lac de Vassiviere - one of the largest lakes in France. A beautiful place to swim, relax on the beaches or take a boat ride.


De Tout Coeur Limousin is our 19th century converted farmhouse and barn set in 2 acres of private garden and woodland backing onto farmland and forest.


We can accommodate individuals or small groups of up to 8 people. We offer comfortable shared accommodation in a combination of double and twin rooms (single option available) in our converted rustic farmhouse in the heart of the Limousin countryside.

We have a large family style bathroom (with shower, bath and toilet), separate shower room, 2 reception rooms, downstairs toilet/utility room, and a self contained apartment/workshop space (ideal for small group activities).

We also have a large barn workshop and performance space which is great for our workshops and as a communal and social space you are free to use during your stay with us.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. 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.
