Maison de la Source

Maison de la Source is our home and a camp in nature. We believe passionately about living as minimally and harmoniously with the earth as possible, and La Source is a perfect place to experience this. Nestled in the forest, where the Alpine and Mediterranean environments meet, and so it is teeming with wildlife. We are fully 'off grid', with solar power, wood heating and filtered source water. Nature rules here and so be ready for a relaxing and tranquil stay.

Accomodation

We have different options for you to choose from and can accomodate up to 20 people onsite. We have yurt, teepee and tents available for shared and private use.

The Camping Terrace

You can also bring your own tent and equipment to stay with us and choose your own spot on the shaded camping terrace.

Maison de la Source is available to book as a private Nature Therapy stay, where you will have sole use of the site and Keith and Simone on hand to provide therapeutic outdoor activities. Keith is a registered Counseller and nature therapist and Simone is an outdoor guide and International Mountain Leader; together we can look after you during your stay. Please contact us to discuss this in more detail.

Spring Water & Washing

One of the most special elements of staying at Maison de la Source is being able to drink and wash with our own spring water. There are outdoor solar showers in the garden and a specific drinking water tap in the outdoor kitchen. It tastes amazing, completely natural with no chemicals.

The Cooking Facilities

On the bottom terrace there is an outdoor kitchen with a gas cooker, fridge and storage boxes for your food. There is also an undercover space with chairs and tables.

Our Nature Camp is also the perfect base for teachers to organise school hiking and camping trips. Both Keith and Simone are qualified British teachers with over 30 years of Outdoor Education experience. We can organise school hiking expeditions for your pupils or students, or a Nature Camp for younger children that includes forest and outdoor activities. Please get in touch to start planning your school outdoor experience.

The Cabin

The Cabin is nature classroom. A quiet safe space, perfect for 1:1 sessions, or small group work.

Why not organise a FOREST PARTY! Maison de la Source is the perfect venue for an outdoor wedding, kids bushcraft or birthday party. There is a ceremony space for outdoor weddings and Simone is a celebrant specialising in Celtic Handfast Ceremonies.
