Tourné: a place to restore, revitalise and relax.

Whether you come for a guided retreat or to spend time in our holiday cottage or Bridge House, a stunning natural environment will support your plans.

The main house at Tourné was built by the Vicomte de Bellissens by 1858. A fine Maison de Maïtre built with red marble, it is set in the vast Forest of Bellissens, thousands of acres of unspoiled and accessible forest. The crystal clear snow fed Artillac river flows through the substantial gardens of the main house. We receive guests all year round. Retreat participants stay in the main house which we occasionally open for bed and breakfast-our emphasis is on relaxed retreats. We also offer holiday rentals in the Bridge House or the Cottage, suitable for families with children of all ages.

See our retreats page to choose a program that suits you. All year round retreats allow you several free hours a day to explore or relax with two guided sessions each day of tao yoga, qigong or meditation according to your chosen program. Our seasonal retreats are more intensive with up to 8 hours of sessions per day.
