Retreats & Holidays in Southern France


La pierre is a calm, family run small holding. An enchanting oak woodland with surrounding vineyards and olive groves.

We have 2 yurts, 3 bell tents and a beautiful shepherds cottage, the mazet. We are open from April - October for camping and retreats, The Mazet is open all year round.

Within walking distance to the sweet village of Arpaillargues and 5 km from the bustling medieval market town of Uzes, in the Languedoc Roussillon region of France.

A place of reflection, peace and nourishment.... 

Happy Winter times Everyone! May these cooler days be abundant with peace, love and healthy times.

With urban beginnings in London and Sheffield, in 2006 we moved here with our baby in our arms with a strong desire for a rural adventure. First owned and tended by Ellas' grandparents, the land has been a well-loved home for families and friends over many years.  

Aiming to put into practice what we had learned whilst working on farms in New Zealand and Spain, we started planting seeds, and began watering. Tending to the land using permaculture principles, nurturing native species and working towards a more sustainable, self sufficient, conscious existence.  

With eternal thanks to all the people who help to make La Pierre a sacred place for all who visit. We could not do this without you.

Ella is a creative foodie with trainings in massage, aromatherapy and yoga.

Ed is a landscape gardener, maker and all round very handy person :)

Each year we have planting and construction projects to achieve in our off-season months. With the help of volunteers we aim to bring improvements to the land and all the various energy systems that exist within it. We welcome volunteers and wwoofers to the land from march 1st.
