Venue

The Ferrairolles is an ecological, off-the-grid guesthouse and retreat center at the foothills of the French Pyrenees, in the Languedoc wine area, about 30 minutes away from the Mediterranean Sea. Our remote location allows us to experience a peacefulness that often escapes us in our modern world. For instance, we can appreciate the starry sky because we do not have air or light pollution.

We are surrounded by Cathar castles, medieval abbeys, and gorgeous canyons that offer many biking, hiking, and sightseeing options. Our location is bucolic and breathtaking, a restorative oasis with awe-inspiring views in every direction.

The Ferrairolles has olive trees, vineyards, honey bees, chickens, and an organic garden. We live as harmoniously as possible with our land, always aware of our relationship with nature and its resources. We encourage our international guests to plant a fruit tree on the land, and we will plant a second one!

Since January 2017, we also have participated in the WWOOF France program (“Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms”).

The Ferrairolles is run by Rolinka and her Pyrenees mountain dogs, Risotto and Karma. All three of us love people and look forward to welcoming you soon!
