Welcome to Les Grandes Mothes

The space

The guest accommodation consists of a self contained, 2 bedroom cottage, garden furniture and BBQ. There is also a 2 bedroom apartment in the main monastery building. Your hosts aims to be helpful and flexible.

A maximum group size of 4 ensures everyone has their own room, desk and the peace and tranquillity they require. However should people wish to book the cottage and the apartment for a group of 3 in each, with couples sharing the double beds, this can be arranged subject to availability. Or, if you want to be totally by yourself, you may rent the whole cottage or apartment. It is also possible to have bunk beds in the single bedrooms for a small additional charge. Long term and group rentals are offered.

Other things to note

This lovely energy will ripple out far and wide from The Monastery through the works the visitors create while they are here at this peaceful place and the uplifting sense of well being and purpose they take home with them. Your host will be on site to help you to shine brightly; you need you and the world needs you. While the Monastery lends itself to any meditative or creative pursuit, it is particularly suited to historical and spiritual creations; including past life re-framing. Musicians and songwriters are welcome to use her guitar or electronic piano keyboard. There is even a games room with a full size snooker table!

On site there is a purpose built copper meditation pyramid, scaled on the Great Pyramid of Giza- sitting in there will really get the creative energy flowing! The host is happy to guide meditations and give healing or massage sessions for a donation towards renovating the chapel and installing a permanent Labyrinth. Your host is helpful, accommodating and flexible; offering a range of options. She is happy to take you to the supermarket once a week and there is a daily fresh bread and croissant delivery.
