EDuring the season, Terre de miel will offer independent, spacious and very comfortable accommodation for rent for 8 people in a newly renovated farmhouse, allowing guests to isolate themselves on the spot between the pool, the forest and the garden and/or to get away from it all thanks to the opportunities for excursions in the Dordogne (hikes between castles and caves, kayaking, markets and flea markets in the most beautiful villages of France). For those who love vacations in a serene and idyllic environment. Rates on request.

In the off-season, Terre de Miel will offer a program that integrates meditation and other healing therapies to disconnect from the real and digital world, break with modern habits and practice mindfulness to appreciate the present moment. For those interested in developing a meditative practice. Suggested donation.

All year long, Terre de miel will work in favor of the protection of the environment by ensuring the pollination of bees through the maintenance of beehives; by preserving the local biodiversity through the exploitation of fruit trees (Pomme du Limousin AOP, Pruneau d'Agen IGP, Noix du Périgord AOC) and by becoming energetically independent thanks to solar energy. For the citizens of the world concerned by the planet. Free entry by appointment.
