Location

Rochechouart, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, France

We are walking distance from the centre of an ancient town, with roman and medieval charm. We are central to a meteorite strike zone and many events in the town and museums explain and show the impact on the landscape. This quiet corner of France still maintains local traditions such as the fresh food markets on a Friday behind the chapel and the local tourist office in the "capitol" can offer you so much information.

Our family home is in a three hundred year old bourgeoise house. We have renovated what was the housekeepers dwelling into a small apartment, with the best view of the walled garden. My husband and I love the great outdoors and both run regularly. We enjoy travelling and meeting new people, even after ten years in this small town there is still so much to discover. Local produce here is incredible, you can find most things within walking distance of our home. We are easy going people, we both work full time. Phil with a lumber company and I run a day spa right here on the premises. I spend a lot of time helping people get back to basics, recharge the batteries so to speak. We like to help visitors find their own space, and often visitors are unaware just how much they missed the countryside, garden or just having company that doesn't make you work to hard! My business is called Equilibre Naturellement, which means Naturally Balanced. I think that sums up who we are and what this experience can offer.
