Welcome to La Pierre Verte! (The Green Stone) named after the big stone which is found by the entrance to the land. La Pierre Verte is an enchanting three acre woodland located in southern France. 5km from the beautiful market town of Uzès in the Languedoc region. A warm place of tranquility and luscious green horizons. Trees, blue skies, wildlife and an abundance of calm and clean air. Far from the speed of urban life, this hidden haven will allow you to feel in touch with the elements. return to your source and to the abundance nature has to offer us. 

Fresh, laid back and inspiring, our location offers both holidays and retreats designed to promote health and well-being with great respect for the environment. We tend to the land using permaculture principles and we explore different forms of garden design to produce some of our own food and herbs. Our aim is to nurture the native species found on the land while striving to live a more sustainable, self sufficient existence. La pierre verte is an ongoing family project for the last 40 years, the land was owned originally by Ellas' grand-parents. The history and flowing stream of wonderful visitors to the land help make it thrive with endless possibilities but also with peace, quiet and a resonating silence.  

A place to unwind, explore the area, or simply relax, chill out and do nothing. A place to enjoy either on your own or with friends and family, to discover and rediscover the joys of life, of simplicity. 

We are Ella, Ed and Lily. We live here full time since 2006 with our animals, our dog Ruby, our 4 cats and 6 hens and sometimes foster donkeys. Former residents of London, nine years ago we moved to the woods. We bought a yurt, started planting and the project has evolved.... Bit by bit we are nourishing the soil and working at creating a peaceful, productive and transformative place for all to enjoy. During the off-season months we work at developing our vision for the project and also focusing on tree care, maintenance and general improvements to the land and projects. With unending thanks to our family, friends, cherished guests and volunteers who help to enrich this special place with their love, energy and time, year after every season (you know who you are!). Living close to nature and caring for the land and animals provides us with the calm and fulfilling existence we were searching for. Please come by and add to the adventure! For volunteer enquiries please contact us direct or visit our listings at either or We welcome helpers between March-Oct.

We have 4 unique dwellings to offer you. Nestled on site you will find, 2 Yurts, 1 Bell tent and a Mazet (stone cottage), each in their own secluded area. Each dwelling has lovingly crafted independent facilities which include a fully equipped outdoor kitchen and bbq, seating area and dining table, a private outside shower and private compost toilet. You will experience the joy and wonder of outdoors living in style and comfort. The mazet is the dwelling for those of you who prefer a little more luxury or those less inclined to camp!
