Venue HighlightsBearfoot Lodge is located in the heart of the French Limousin countryside. Surrounded on all sides by fields and forests and of course, the infamous Limousin cows. As guests, you have access to the three rooms in the guest wing, which have all be lovingly restored with designer touches. You'll eat in our quirky Miami themed dining room, which can't fail to bring a smile to your faces! You can also join us in the kitchen while we prepare your meals ... then you have the 3 acres of grounds to explore for yourselves. You'll find hammocks, chill out areas, a meditation circle and we'll have a range of outdoor games, like badminton, petanque, soft archery to keep you entertained, if you have the energy!
Direct from the Lodge there are some stunning country walks, taking you through fields, forests, rivers and lakes. We're also superbly located for exploring the many lakes in the region, fondly referred to as the French lake district. Many of the lakes have beaches, where we will go to do some of our outdoor activities or you can quite simply go and chill out in the sunshine.
We're also on the doorstep of some truly quaint and beautiful medieval towns. The retreat is yours, so we won't dictate what you do, you can tell us what you would like to do and we'll tailor it to get the most out of your time with us.
