The property sits in the Landes national park, a huge pine forest. The accommodation consists of the main house and accommodation in the restored barn, above the recording studio.

The large lounge has a TV and DVD player. During winter months the wood burning fire helps keep the whole house warm as well as creating a pleasant cosy focal point.



The wooden stair case leads upstairs to a mezzanine area and flexible accommodation. The bedrooms are very traditional landaise with wooden beams and velux windows. Accommodation is normally on a shared basis depending on the numbers of guests. It is possible for couples to attend a retreat where one person is not participating in the activities.

All retreats are offered on a full board basis. Local produce is prepared on site and the large dining table allows for everyone to discuss their ongoing musical progress together.

There is a large terraced area overlooking the pool and garden as well as a decked patio with plenty of room for barbecues and for everyone to sit and eat together.

Above the recording studio in the barn is a large open plan space with several single and double beds. There is also a kitchen area and dining table. The studio has its own bathroom with toilet and shower.
