Retreat location

La Roane is set in a 20-acre woodland retreat with wonderful walks to explore, a paradise for nature lovers. Here you will find an abundance of wildlife: deer, hare, buzzards, singing frogs and butterflies - over 40 species of butterflies identified recently - and wildflowers. ‘Roane’, pronounced ‘ro-anne’ means ‘red’ in the local patois and the name is taken from the colour of the soil.

There are many walks in the woods which are especially welcome when the sun shines as it’s cooler under the trees. You will find a tree house at the entrance of the woods (usually where the group leader stays), two labyrinths, some beehives, a sweat lodge used for Amerindians rituals in Spring and plenty of spots for quiet reflection.

The labyrinths were built during courses here and they are used as a metaphor for life. Journeying the labyrinth clears the mind and gives insight into our life journeys. It calms those in the midst of transition and helps us to see life in the context of a path. It also stirs creative fires and provides us with clarity to move forward with courage. The journey is different for everyone, as is life, for we each bring different raw material to the labyrinth. We bring our uniqueness and often depart with a greater sense of oneness and unity. It’s a place of meditation and mindfulness.

There is also a spectacular cave twenty minutes walk away that was used as a hideout out during the Resitance and that offers impressive views over the Gorges de l’Aveyron.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Toulouse–Blagnac Airport (TLS). Airport transfers are available for 30 GBP. This is the easiest and most comfortable way to get to La Roane. The local airport is just one hour away. There are regular flights to Toulouse from most major UK airports.

Arrival by train

Leave early in the morning from St Pancras on the Eurostar and then ride the metro across Paris. From Paris, you can either: take the Toulouse train from Gare d’Austerlitz and get off two stops before Toulouse, at Caussade Tarn-et-Garonne, a 15-minute drive from La Roane.

You can also take the TGV from Gare Montparnasse in Paris to Montauban-Ville-bourbon and from there, take the connecting train to Caussade, a much quicker option.

If you are coming all the way to La Roane by train, then the taxi ride is on the house (both ways)!
