Remote Rustic Relaxing Retreat


Forest Life in the beautiful Creuse department, Nouvelle Aquitane (ex-Limousin) region of central France offers an opportunity to become immersed in the peaceful tranquility of the forest and to become acquainted with its wildlife inhabitants.

Situated at a renovated old water mill called the Moulin Bleu (Blue Mill) along a stretch of the River Gourbillon, Forest Life encompasses 6 acres of the Forest de Clairavaux within the Regional Millevaches Nature Reserve with plenty of access to other areas such as the famous Lac de Vassivierre and mountainous, volcanic peaks of the Chaîne des Puys.

With it’s own woodland, meadows and 300m of riverside there is plenty of opportunity get back to nature and learn about nature, wildlife, tracking and wilderness living or just relax and recuperate. 

We offer a relaxing Retreat with massage and yoga therapy sessions with outdoor spa and a more adventurous Outdoor Skills course.

You can even mix and match sessions between the Retreat and Outdoor Skills course depending on your interests or the interests of those in your party.

Forest Life’s remoteness has meant that much of the modern world has passed it by; however the area is serviced by three airports; Limoges, Brive la Guillarde or Claremont-Ferrand all approx. 1 hour 40 minutes away.

The nearest town is Felletin (10 mins by car) and the historically important larger town of Aubusson (famous for it’s medieval tapestries) is 20 mins away (links wikipedia.)
